    Absolutely awesome!!

    I lived in Iceland for 2 years in the late '80s and have visited most of the places you highlighted. Of course at that time I was more into 4WD than anything. Had a 4x4 Blazer that we went road tripping in almost every weekend.

    I LOVED Iceland. Was definitely one of the best overseas assignments I ever had!

    OK, I'll try to get some more pictures in here...
    I need 10 contributions before being allowed to do so, so bear with me

    (being an IT professional myself, I have little patience with restrictions, though I can definitely see their value)

    All those Icelandic pictures make the Sandman bikes look more and more tempting.

    Alot of people, myself included before I went, have this big misconception about Iceland. And from the photos that they see people think it is a barren wasteland. After having spent two years there I can honestly say it is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled places on the planet.

    I was more than pleasantly surprised to see this thread!

    Thanks for the advice. Higher, I posted a URL to a slideshow, which I can more easily share on multiple forums and expand as I go through the photographic material. Hope that works fine for everybody, too.

    One other thing I like about this Sandman bike is how its ultra-wide tires barely leave a trace, even in this soft tephra, even with me on it - 115 Kg wet on the hook. Just compare my track with the deep-cutting, erratic ones of 2.3" tires on the right...

    As a conservationist driving a zero-emission Twike since 13 years I can appreciate that (besides the easy riding, of course)

    Yeah, it's nice to include the link to the whole set - but:



    It's nice to post teasers, too.

    Whike

    With all the wind we encountered, maybe this trike is a possibillity for Iceland travel, too :

    I wonder how close it would be able to steer against the wind ?

    But then again : impossible to push such a thing up a slope

    That is absolutely correct ! And my stories get better as they age, unlike myself.

    In a blink of time I may have become a fat "wheelchair" biker...

    I will dearly need my stories to get the nurses' attention

    GREAT report ~ but I'll have to log on from home before I can see the wonderful pictures everyone is commenting on! This part had me laughing "But something was wrong... there was this weird phenomenon in the sky... some said it was a sun"... .
