Hi, I have done most but not all of your planned journey over previous years, I think you would find a different bike far more suited to the journey as the roads in Northern Norway can be poor but in Northern Russia along with many roads in Russia the roads can be ok or really bad. a lot of the road on the trip south from nikel in the north are rutted and poor with gravel sections, Bright yellow sports bike will make the going hard and very uncomfortable or very slow, and it shouts FINE ME I am RICH to Russian Police. But overall the trip sounds great and two months gives you loads of time. I would also consider coming out of Russia into southern Estonia from Moscow then North to Tallin and Ferry it over to Finland If thats your chosen route to home, Its just a lot easier than travelling way back north through Russia as the St Petersburg / Moscow road is a long haul to do twice in one trip.
