Krisse's & Tom's roadtrip around lake Päijänne

One nice thursday and friday in June we rode about 600km around lake Päijänne. Super nice roads and views. It was about 27 Celcius so we could ride in just t-shirts and get a bit sunburnt. And we were so lucky our great horses made the trip. Good times!!!

The camp place.

Tom getting the fire started.

The midnight sun and a nice fire going.

If I remember correctly the 4Q Vans are fireproof or something.

You can not love the finnish midnight sun. The pic was taken at 1 am.

Nice roads and nice scenery.

Polish Springer

Those got damn polish springer forks... 100km/h on the freeway and a bump... Not a nice combination. Luckily no one was injured badly.

Delicious roadkill!

Timppa telling something very interesting.

Tom's bike broke down again.

Let's ship these fools back to Finland.

Krisse's & Tom's roadtrip

Finally in may, after the long winter of building Tom's pan we got a chance to do a little roadtrip, about 500km...

But after 300km my back brake bracket's bolt fell off (I hadn't secure checked it since last summer) and not having front brake kinda suck at these situations...

Broken down on the side of the road, part 1.

 on to the trailer of our friend Jukka who lives just few miles away.

Then we continued towards Helsinki for about 70km and Tom's back tire exploded...

Broken down on the side of the road, part 2.

Now there's two bikes on the trailer. Better luck next time, yeah right!
