Motorbike test drive and buying advice BMW R 1200R GS LC Adventure trip to Lofoten & Nordkapp
A telephone call from the magazine MOTORRAD: Your long-distance test machine BMW R 1200R for Issue 25 on 25.11.2016 needs a few thousand more kilometers on the clock. Could I do that quickly? Clearly I accepted this assignment. I love motorcycling, no matter what brand. I was given 2 days to prepare for the trip.
1, 2, 3. the F800 with worn piston rings and gears in the transmission and the BMW K 1300 GT, BMW K 1200 RS, BMW S 1000 RR Engine failures after ridiculous 50,000 km failed, but not a single motorcycle from Honda or Yamaha. The target group of BMW are obviously people whose technical knowledge does not even go for an oil change.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.
The highways and tunnels are toll-free for motorcycles. For this, a hefty luxury tax is due when buying a motorcycle in these countries.
Fortunately, there was an open wlan at the harbor, so that I could book a ferry ticket to Tallin for the next day online for 38 euros. At the counter would come to this price 8 euros service charge.
On my navigation I was looking for a little built-up space to stay overnight. A green park just 3 km away looked promising. At the same time, I noticed that the clock of the BMW has automatically changed to the correct time zone. A nice gimick.
Arrived at the green park I saw that I was not mistaken. In a green covered area were numerous small garden sheds and traditional Finnish sauna cabins. In between, there were always green areas that were perfect for camping. Nobody had anything against it. Apart from a few joggers and handlers, hardly anyone was there.
The departure from Finland was completely relaxed again without police. Nobody annoyed you, only on the ferry I had to stop an employee from tensing a hard lashing strap across the sensitive seat of the BMW and damaging it. Instead, I lashed the bike rather directly on the frame. On board there was 500 MB Wlan as well as a karaoke bar with funny music. Time passed quickly even without alcohol.
No one in Estonia wanted to see my papers. On the brand-new, straight and straight road, however, policemen using laser pistols hoped that one of the new arrivals would exceed the permitted 50 km / h. The robbing of travelers, the second oldest trade in the world is still common and more lucrative here than the criminal hunt (interesting article) and (interesting article). Because of friend and helper. Who has money in Estonia, lives mostly from online fraud see Arte TV documentary "In the clutches of the Internet Mafia". Helerware can be bought cheaply on the market. On the other side of the country, just before the border with Latvia, the highwaymen stood again with their laser pistol. It's more worthwhile to collect money from unsuspecting citizens than to hunt drug dealers (Interesting article).
Apart from the brand-new roads that the EU has built here so that the country does not fall to the Russians like Ukraine, Estonia is otherwise largely made up of agriculture and ruins. Latvia and Lithuania are not that bad anymore.
Many people have just moved away and left their house to decay. Here you can still feel them, the cold Soviet times. Why should one also work here, if you do nothing in the social systems of stupid Germans without passport as a non-deportable asylum seeker or as EU citizen with a sham industry gets more money see Frontal21 from 06.09.2016 and SpiegelTV? Even the refugees forcibly assigned by Merkel economic migrants have moved away again. They are not concerned with security here, as German politics would like to make us know. They want to tap as much money in Germany as possible. (interesting article). No wonder that the British and the Swiss want to close their borders. After all, their citizens were asked.
The politicians are always talking about wanting to fight the causes of flight, they would just have to cancel only wage increases, asylum, housing subsidies and especially child support. If Germany is no longer equated with the same amount of free money, that's what it's all about, and nobody wants to flee to Germany anymore.
