Moving back to Iceland has not been as easy as I thought.. The economy here sucks and the country is infected with corruption and greed. But the good part is that I now have a toy to play with ;) Got my hands on a almost unused 2008 Husaberg FE450. The bike had 1400 km (about 875 miles) on the clock and for the looks of it only on pavement.. I haven´t had the chance to use it as much as I want because of the snow we had the weeks after I bought it. Therefore I use every chance I get to go riding, now when the snow is gone. Last Sunday I went for a little ride, the weather was ok at first, a bit windy but nothing to worry about (I thought).. All of a sudden the wind got stronger and on two occasions the wind blew me and the bike over. I went on and managed to get to my parents house before the storm hit with full strength. The wind was so strong that 8 airplanes (with about 1000 people inside) where stuck on the runway at Keflavik Airport for 5 hours because they could not park at the terminal or open the doors on the planes due to the strong winds.
You can see a news report from the Icelandic TV channel: Here
The footage of the planes and the car at the airport says it all ;o)
