Re: Nearest port to Norway

I done Newcastle to Ijmuiden, cuts most of England out. We took the Øresund via Sweden, but I think you'll be quicker on the ferry from the north of Denmark to Norway.

Eco mode is good enou...

Re: Cruise control on a bike - what are our thoughts?

I had it on my RT, missed it on my first first GS LC and now have it on my new 1250 GS LC. It’s really useful in 20/30/40 zones and was a godsend on the long boring roads of north west France on tour this year.
