My name is Hans Petter Strifeldt, and as you might have guessed, I’m a Norwegian. Since I started riding bikes around 1990, I have always been a great fan of riding in my home country. Sure, it is great fun to have a blast through Germany, enjoy a prosecco with motorcycle friends in Italy, get muddy and happy at the Dragon Rally in Wales, ride with an angle in the strong winds of the Shetlands, get amazed by the beauty of Scotland, find calmness in Sicily, and flatness in Denmark. But beyond the fact that I have not been everywhere on this planet, Norway is still on top of my list of places I like to ride. Its diversity in nature and weather, paired with great motorcycle roads, makes it in my view close to a motorcycle heaven. With more than 2500 kms from south to north, more than 100000 kms of coast line (2nd only to Canada in length, actually), and still many unexplored roads to find, I have plenty of places to go and things to see even if I live my day-to-day life here.
Bike-wise I am a Guzzi-head, but also appreciate the finer qualities of light enduro bikes of Austrian and Japanese origin.
I hope you enjoy the blog, and who knows – maybe we’ll see each other on the road somewhere?
