Sunday, January 8, 2012 @ 08:34

Welcome to the first TourNews in English. TourNews is the newsletter for www.tourstart.org. The news letter’s will contain of small as well as big issues from the motorcycle world. Anyhow, the focus will be on motorcycle touring and how to get some good experiences on the road.

Should you have any comments or suggestions, I will be pleased to receive a mail from you on jap@tourstart.org


Plan and share a great motorcycle ride

Tourstart.org is a free of charge web site for all motorcyclists, who enjoy riding on the motorcycle and plan some great motorcycle tours. Any tours found on Tourstart can be transferred to the GPS, and it will not take more than a few minutes to make the tour and transfer it to the GPS. Then you are ready to go for a motorcycle ride. You can click on this link to see a YouTube video how easy it is to make a tour, save it and transfer it to your GPS. You can transfer to your Garmin, TomTom or Navigon device, as well as getting .gpx data.

The Lysebotn tour, which is made in the YouTube video, is a great scenic tour in Norway, and there is a fantastic boat trip on the Lysefiord, which is typically Norwegian. You can make an instant download of GPS data and a PDF, should you like that.

Happiness is -motorcycle wash!

Well, not all might agree, but the motorcycle is in winter hibernation, and I am a bit  behind. Not long ago, I had the motorcycle washed and prepared for the winter storage. We already had the first snow long time ago, which made me stop riding the bike. Now it is time for the winter rituals, where the bike is nursed and admired, so it will be ready for next years season.  Many chose to have it stored at the local motorcycle dealer, which is also good, but I am so fortuned that it can stored in a warm garage, where I all winter can admire it, and check if it is doing well.

Motorcycle exhibition - HMT

Tourstart started in Denmark, and is already international. We have many users from europe, and it is now time to start practice the German language. On 27-29 January 2012, Tourstart will exhibit on the Hamburger Motorrad Tage, where up to 60 000 visitors are expected. On the exhibition we will have our own booth, where we will demonstrate the functions and have a motorcycle discussion with the bikers. We hope to see you for this great event. Here you can visit the HMT web site. The picture is from the Danish motorcycle exhibition where Tourstart exhibited in February 2011 in Herning, Denmark.
