Driver was refueled with several liters of beer, temperature and weather sucked totally. During the day we managed to visit Ålesund Akvarium, Fjellstua lookout and so called "old town" which as turned out was around 100 years old as almost all the town burned down in year 1904.

Day 6 February 18th    From Ålesund to Dombås distance 255km
There were no need for refueling the motorcycle but driver needed a lot of fixing. Weather was so bad that there is no descent way to describe it properly. Temperature was +2oC, rain was so heavy that after 50km it started to flow down inside the sleeves of coretex jacket into the gloves. Driver turned the grip heater into maximum power. Few slices of carrot would have made it a perfect soup.

Day 7 February 19th    From Dombås to Mora (Sweden) distance 462km
Refueled 44 liters, average temperature -2oC
This day can be described as "Rally of Sweden" - nice snowy roads, absolutely no rain, sun was shining and the throttle wanted to go fully down all the time. Driver felt himself as real Marcus Grönholm during this day, first half of the day there were nice and snowy mountain roads of Norway, other half of the day we drove in Sweden where we saw already some clean roads.

Day 8 February 20th    From Mora to Stockholm distance 344km
Refueled 8 liters, temperature in the morning -3.3oC evening +2oC
Nothing more than big roads and driving. When we arrived to Stockholm it turned out that its hard to get into the harbour without the city map what we did not have. So we chose random roads and spent lot of time but still arrived to harbour with plenty of time to spare.
