Moi Moi from Finland

[pr. moy-moy]

Hi from Helsinki.

Matt, ex UK, checking in.

Picking up new Enfield Electra next month.

Planning to ride to Lapland this year with one of the kids and back with the other. Not that I leave one of them there all winter - one's going up with the train to granny's cottage and the other etc.

The stories on this site are amazing and inspiring. For years I've been thinking about a monster bike ride. I'll check out this Enfield for a couple of years and see how it goes.

Greetings to you all

Matt

Welcome to the HUBB. Looking forward to your story. The Enfield doesn't seem to be the 'normal' choice in Europe. It would be nice if you posted some pictures and a few lines, I would surely be interested.

Well..
Thanks to you all!

Wishing you all a great season
