    Good day,
    one dream came true - I rode a Trophy SE in Iceland. Mid -Augus,  700km, 2 coffee breaks, 8,5 hours, , air temperature 11-12, about 8 degrees C in highlands, strong and cold side wind in higlands. It may be that this the only one Trophy SE with Icelandic number plates now - I haven't see anymore.

    dvarson.  :400: Congratulations, it's always great to be the first at anything. An interesting and spectacular country you have the pleasure of riding in, if only for a brief period a year.  :821: :028:

    Hi Hackle,
    Did you rent the trophy over there? certainly a cool (literally...) experience!
    I went (in a car  :151:) 2 weeks ago for 5 days.

    Amazing landscapes!! and very few cars  :046:

    I have this Trophy about 4 years and kept in Lithuania. I had a good trip this summer - Lithuania, Poland, Germany, Denmark, ferry, and first 700km in Iceland from port to my home in Reykjavik. I payed imports taxes (it's not cheap here - about 5000 pounds) and now I have Icelandic number plates.

    Why don't you take her out for a spin again? I recommend this place:

    One of my finds when visiting your beautiful country. You could get a tour and hear interesting historic facts from a young fun guy about the Hella Caves.

    My wife and I visited your beautiful island country 3 years ago. Spent 2 weeks on the ring road. If anyone gets the opportunity to tour Iceland I reccomend it highly. Friendly people, amazing scenery, even viewed from a Dacia diesel!
