Harley-Davidson Road Glide Ultra Tour to Eiderspeerwerk

A day trip with the Harley-Davidson Road Glide Ultra to the North Sea

Part 5

It's supposed to be a day trip with my two buddies Hermann and Ernst. It's Ascension Day and we want to take our Harleys to the North Sea to the Eider barrage.

We start on the Baltic Sea coast near Schönberg, but our Hermann comes from the island of Fehmarn , he is the winner of the furthest journey.

We take the ferry across the canal

Schleswig-Holstein offers some beautiful routes for leisurely driving, we are driving north and want to take the Nobiskrug ferry to the other side of the canal in Schacht-Audorf.

It doesn't cost anything and the short stop is fun. You often meet other motorcyclists with whom you naturally start a conversation. Every year, over 120,000 motorcyclists cross the canal on this ferry, most of them just for fun.

BoomBox Navigation interests other bikers

These are often the moments when bikers from other brands in particular take a closer look at the Road Glide and you quickly start talking to them. Because built-in navigation and such a heavy machine are somehow interesting.

We drive past the Hohn air base

We now drive on towards Hohn, the village is better known as Hohn Air Base, where the Transall is at home.

We stop to refuel in Hohn, our Hermann has a hundred kilometers more on him than us, otherwise we always fill up the tank before the journey, which is actually usual.

In sport she consumed 6 liters

I have now driven 5787 kilometers with the Road Glide Ultra. With a little sporty driving style she now consumes 6 liters. You can certainly use a liter more petrol if required. Who would have thought that the Road Glide could also be sporty!

Breakfast in the Niebüller bakery in Friedrichstadt

We get hungry and enjoy our breakfast in Friedrichstadt.

The machines are full of fuel and now we're heading to Friedrichstadt, where there's a good baker on the market square. Now it's time for breakfast and we're not the only bikers who know the beautiful little town between Husum and Büsum.

In the middle of town there is the Niebüller Bakery, the strange thing is that you can sit comfortably in the middle of the square to enjoy your coffee in the sun.

We are planning the Norway tour

While we have breakfast we discuss our tour to Norway , we have decided to go North Cape

I can tell you, we've been planning this number for ages and now it's finally supposed to start in July.

Now we continue and we drive via Tönning in the direction of the Eider barrage , in between we enjoy the landscape and the rapeseed is blooming so beautifully.

And the wind from the North Sea is slowly blowing around your nose, the air is noticeably different on the coast. And then the barrier appears in front of us.

The Eider Barrage is a popular meeting point among bikers, and you can buy some of the best fish sandwiches here. If you want, you can also buy whole eels here. Such a barrier is not something you see every day; the huge flaps are lowered during storms so that the Eider does not flood the inland areas during a storm surge.

Super tasty fish sandwiches and good coffee, it's worth it!

We spent a little too long in Friedrichstadt at the bakery, so there isn't as much going on here anymore. It's like most meeting places in the country, it gets quieter after 2 p.m.

We have perfect weather, so the day with his friends is fun and as an encore we will now go to Büsum.

The good thing about the Road Glide Ultra is that the suitcases have plenty of space. There is always enough space to store everything for shopping, jackets or rain gear.

We continue to the Shanty Festival in Büsum

Shanty Festival always takes place in Büsum on Ascension Day, which is pure seafaring romance. The shanty choirs are singing on several stages and ignite your wanderlust.

On the Road Glide Ultra I always think that I'm the captain of a big ship. The solid fairing makes it easy to steer my steamer because there is no weight hanging on the handlebars.

Beach, crabs and ice cream are arguments for Büsum

The day is slowly coming to an end, we still have a few kilometers ahead of us. Fortunately! We feel like driving, it's always fun to do a few laps around the country in a small group.

Today I noticed again that the Road Glide is really flexible, it is easy to drive through the curves, a perfect gear ratio and the torque of Nm ensure that there is enough power in every situation.

I have a good feeling about the Norway tour, it couldn't be more convenient to drive to the North Cape.

Days like these, riding a Harley together with your best friends without stress, give rise to gratitude.
