Thanks for the great feedback all !..

I'm hoping to be heading to the Artic Circle loop ( Denmark - Sweden - Finnland - Norway -) coast roads except for the Finland crossing and done anti-clockwise . Start mid July, say 3 to 4 week loop. If anyones about it would be good to know / catch-up.

If anyone has GPS POI's or tracks this would also be appreciated !

Cheers and ride safe.
What kind of GPS tracks you are looking for?
I have lot of them

Ah - that was Carlo Guzzi's brother Guiseppe who rode the Moto Guzzi GT 500 to the Polar Circle in Norway in 1928 to prove the bike's worth as a long distance tourer. Quite a ride even in our time - a journey of biblical proportions back then. After the trip the bike was dubbed the GT 500 "Norge". Wouldn't mind one of those...
