A Sure sign of the coming spring is the opening of Bakken. On Friday 12th the Motorbikes will be a at Nørrebrogade and in the evening the parade will start towards Bakken with a enormous roar. Its a fantastic sight, and this year its the later than normal, since Bakken has pushed the opening days a couple of weeks.
