  • Not sure why everyone expects Iceland to be some paradise. Drivers are cunts worldwide.

    Go to the USA and you'll find that speeding truck passing shenanigans happening every 10min.
    I presume they don't have data loggers or speed limiters in US trucks?

    I think it’s because if you are caught speeding or being a dick - as a tourist anyhow - they are pretty strict and the punishments are spendy.

  • So, why all the bother about it being busy and dangerous? I've only been to the capital in December so maybe my view is skewed towards the off-season or something but it seems less busy with cars than most English market towns. I didn't ride there though and don't remember traffic details outside the capital when we headed out on some bus trips.

  • Can confirm speeding tickets are costly. Car rental co apprised me that Iceland police had clocked offence (cost of letter €35). Was worried that I had been spotted maxing it out at 160 km/h on several stretches where we had to make back time. Fortunately was somewhere else where I was only ~10% over 90 km/h limit. Still the fine was something like €150.

    Seriously, don't be riding the bike on the Ring. You are not going to enjoy it.
