Thumbs up greetings from Norway

Hi.
I have been here a few weeks, but have not introduced myself. My name is Rune and i am from Norway (which is a country and not the capital of sweden as some think) I am part owner of a workshop and my days go by in front of a computer and on the phone. I've had a Suzuki Bandit 600n for the last 7years and still have it, but just bought myself a Hornet 2003 of a relative. He bought it new in 2004 and used it only for a year before it was put away in storage. I'm really looking forward to the summer so i can try it ... only 5 months of snow first! I've already got some useful info and seen many great bikes here

Welcome Rune! Lot's of folks here that have a wealth of information on the Hornet. Some of them can also help you empty your pockets very quickly with mods.

When I die I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather did....not screaming in horror like the passengers in the backseat of his car.

Hello and welcome to WT from Texas, which some think is a country of its own.

Hei, hva skjer?!?

My tattoo artist went to Stavanger for a few weeks at one of the parlors up there! He really enjoyed his stay. As for me, I hope that I can carve the Fjords with my bike one day - I heard that they are truly wornderful!

Greetings from the US!

I could welcome you from Goleta, California, USA and think that is what I am doing now.

Velkommen

g'Day,

Nordmann i Australia sier hei. Hornet'en er nylig byttet ut med en Ninja 1000 (+ Kawasaki Zephyr 550 mot en w800). Hvor I Norge er du bosatt? I vente paa sommeren kan jeg anbefale en tur hit hvor sesongen er litt lenger.

God jul

og godt nytt aar

Hehe, savner ikke kulda saa mye, men det er sne aa oppdrive i fjellene om vinteren naar savnet blir stort. Ellers er det storartet aa kjoere sykkel her. Bonus er at prisene paa mc er veldig mye lavere: splitter ny 2012 ninja 1000 for under 75 laken.
Jeg anbefaler power commander, piper og 'flapper mod' for hornet'en. Min hadde - 1 tann paa drevet foran, noe som gir bedre akselerasjon. Ebay er tingen for deler.

Desverre er jul her nede temmelig tamt sammenlignet med Norge, det er ikke det samme naar det er 30 grader, men hvem klager?

Gratulerer med en utmerket sykkel.

^^^^^ Yeah, what he said.

Welcome to the madness.

Hey, if you get in on the photo contest action, a photo of your 919 next to a herd of reindeer would be hard to beat. Just don't forget the glove on the seat.

Glad you agree

I forgot to mention that I highly recommend Delkevic pipes if you are looking for a good sound + it will help scare off the wolves, bears, moose and reindeer etc. The wolverines will not care though, not sure about the lynx.
Here all we have to look out for are kangaroos (i see dead ones on the side of the road every day) and wombats.
And off course spiders; a bloody big white-tip was in my helmet this morning.
