Claus is riding the Yamaha YBR125, and I’m on the Honda ANF125 Innova.

(The flag is just for the picture – it will not be joining us on the trip)

It is actually quite funny that we both paid more for our helmets than we did for our second hand 125cc bikes 🙂

The luggage is now on the bikes and we are ready to start tomorrow morning 🙂

125cc mini Iron Butt tour …

This quest actually started last winter where Claus and I joked about doing a mini Iron Butt tour on 125cc bikes – just for the fun of it.

The Danish mini Iron Butt concept is to ride from Denmark’s southernmost point to the northern tip, in 10 hours, on a bike not exceeding 125cc.

It started as a joke, but four weeks later Claus bought a Yamaha YBR 125 for the project, and then it was no longer possible to back out 🙂

I found an old Honda ANF 125 Innova a few months later and changed oil, spark plug, and drive chain, adjusted the valves and fixed a broken wire inside the wiring harness.

Tyres was almost new, so the only additional preparation was to bolt on my old Tomtom GPS and hook it up to the battery. Luggage will be limited to a roll strapped to the back seat.

To do the trip in 10 hours, we had to plan the route as short as possible, staying on the main roads where we can – to minimize our time on the highways where we will struggle to follow the traffic.

Here is the planned route and we are starting our quest next tursday 🙂
