Annual event - Triumphs of Norway; ToN-2008       


Every year - early June- the Triumph Club of Norway arrange a happening where the (Norwegian) Triumph enthusiasts can meet, drink and discuss and chat about their primary interest.....

2008 was my third year I attended, and the event took place at Buøy Camping, Dalen in Telemark the weekend June, 6-9.

The number of attendees was more tham last year, and the weekend can again be summarized as: Excellent - the people, the party, the cars, the weather - yes, simply splendid ...... . There were Triumphs from the Oslo region, Stavanger region and Bergen region. The Bergen region got 2 awards to bring back home: Ørnulfs Stag was "Best in show" while Steeves TR8 got the award for "most stops" during the ride from Bergen to Dalen.

Saturday we went for a drive from Buøy Camping, Dalen to Fyresdal along Fyresvatn toward Tjønnefoss and Treungen where we had lunch. Then along Telemarksvegen and Nissedal and back to the camping. All together a journey of around 200 km, and a map of the route is shown here.

The route we drove from Bergen to Dalen can be seen here
