    Here is my new ride for around the house.








    And here is the new Gator next to the golf cart. Needless to say there is a significant difference between the two.

    1994 Suzuki Cappuccino "Limited" Version 2 with Suzuki Sport wheels, blue bodywork, electric power steering and two-tone suede-effect seats.

    Configuration is front engine, rear wheel drive.

    This particular model was only sold in Japan so this one is a UK personal import.

    As a Japanese "Kei" class car, the Cappo has just 657cc and 64bhp under the bonnet, so is not as fast as it looks. But the turbo helps give it reasonable acceleration; 0-60 mph in about 8 seconds. Fuel economy is up to about 50 mpg Imperial (5.65 litres/100km).

    The engine is a version of an ubiquitous 3-cylinder Suzuki unit used in many many vehicle types, most of which are small commercial vehicles for city use.

    You can't really tell from this photo but Cappos are very small. The Kei regulations limit total length to 3.3m and width to 1.4m. You don't get into a Cappo so much as put it on!

    Nice looking bike. It seems a crime to even roll it outside when there is snow on the ground but...

    Absolutely - that's the attraction for me too - ships that carry people, cars, animals (in the doggie lugar!), beer, bikes, bodies, groceries, outboard motors, chains, fishing buoys, everything! Bless the cruise passengers too, they're part of the mix. For me that's the attraction of the newer boats too - yes the old ladies are stunning and proper ships - but the cargo decks on the mid and new boats are BIG, and a lifeline to many of the villages further north and on the islands.

    …and I can’t wait for the trip photos! – but meanwhile, what I meant to say earlier was just how wonderful it seemed to me that the bike arrived by Hurtigruten. I know, I know, it’s normal, I have spent hours leaning over ships’ railings watching stuff being unloaded…but somehow having the personal connection and having met you there in Harstad recently…and then looking at your photo of the bike in #114…was an emotional reminder of what hurtigruten is all about.

    I shall bookmark this sequence to show folk who think it’s only cruise ships.

    I had to smile about your detailed trip plan. I was the same at these times. I couldn't wait for it. And it was so much fun!
    I wish you all the best.

    Great to see such a bike Kristan. Here in Sweden people are mostly driving those silly scooter alike bikes. Have fun, take care!

    A helmet on a bike is like the seat-belt in a car- I feel naked without it The bike will be used a lot when I turn 16, before that only for the lessons And when we turn 16, me and Olaf have already planned the first trip, were we start in Harstad, drive to Refsnes and board the ferry to Flesnes, continuing through Sortland and Stokmarknes to Melbu, were we board the ferry over to Fiskebøl. From Fiskebøl, we drive to Svolvær and have lots of time before the ferry over to Skutvik(Hamarøy) is departing. At Hamarøy, we'll head to Drag and get some photos of the ferry before we drive to Bognes and catch the Lødingen-ferry From Lødingen we'll be going home 314 kilometers in total, about 6 hours spent on the bike and 4 hours onboard ferries

    Promise to be careful when riding that bike-thingy, and always wear a helmet....

    If you don't promise us, you must give us the keys....

    I dont think I answered a question from the previous page in this thread.
    To get the 50cc drivers lisence, You have to be 16, participate at a few lessons out in traffic and some classroom tests.

    On the same page there was a picture of Olaf's bikes (We now know that the Tempo Corvette is a 1982), I said I was going to be driving the Tempo. But, I changed my mind and wanted a bike of my own, sharing doesnt seem to work that well. And today, my bike arrived in Harstad onboard the northbound Hurtigrute "Midnatsol". It was sent from Rørvik , and it is a 1989 Honda MT5, just like Olaf's, and 8 years older than his, but It have only done 5500 kilometers which is less than his

    At Nordlines/Hurtigruten



    At home

    I must just shoot in here and say that I wholeheartedly agree!
