This morning we visited the Västerbottens Museum, which had a skiing history exhibition amongst other exhibits. Here they displayed one of the oldest skis ever discovered
Note the single scoop shaped pole
Oldest skis in captivity
Following this we explored our next moves in Sweden over a coffee. Gerty rode out to BMW to get her sticking throttle looked at. Turns out her spill yesterday bent the hand guards into the throttle grip thus retarding its spring back. The mechanic removed the end weight to fix this but we will have to bend the guard back over the next couple of days to avoid undesirable handlebar vibrations.
Mmmm, what next? After talking to some Swedes suggesting Sweden is pretty much all pine forests in terms of riding we decided to catch the night ferry to Vasa in Finland then make our way through the Baltic states.
How cool is Europe
