So managed to get myself a new job and have three weeks to kill between the old one and the new one. So decided to visit the old folks back home in south of Sweden. My traveling companion, a red icon.

My rough plan is to ride to Harwich and take the ferry to Hook of Holland and get to Amsterdam rather quick, where my girlfriend will fly in for the weekend (with a spare helmet). After enjoying a few days in Amsterdam, the idea is to just ride north/east until I manage to either get home to south of Sweden through Denmark, or through north Germany, or get picked up by a Dragon or any other mythical creature. The general idea, is to not have one, and just see where the roads take me.

Once back in Sweden, I will spend time traveling around the home town, where I believe the Scrambler will fit like a glove. I will also travel a bit north to visit a childhood friend or two.

The girlfriend (...and not the bike) will hopefully join me for another weekend in my hometown and once again with a spare helmet, get to see where I grew up and also understand partly why I am the way I am. Part Viking and part "Mowgli" is a strange combination.

Finally, I make my way back to London again and back to getting my balls scorched by my L-twins temper, which is always brought on by the lock grid that is central London.

Wish me luck (and pictures and report will be updated as I go along)

it sounds like a great plan! subscribed and looking forward to the ride report!

I had a similar plan a few years ago when I moved back from London to Rome to buy the bike in UK and drive it back here, but in the end it did not make sense in terms of cost, so I bought the bike here when I moved back!

safe travels!

Thanks @mitra, for sharing your trip experience. You gave me an idea on how a trip can be made adventurous.

Last year when me and my friend went for the road trip to NZ. My friend managed to take his Ducati to NZ using the transport service of a motorcycle hauling company. The company was reliable and transported his motorcycle on the same day when he reached NZ.
