I get up quite late. First 30km are ok, then it starts raining like shit.
It's cold and my sexy suit for rain does not work good enough so after few hours of riding in rain every part of my clothes is wet.
Terrible combination: I'm wet, it's cold, I'm hungry and I need to piss.
I stopped at the gas station and suddenly I hit the ground
WTF?! Did I forget about side stand?! Nope. My side stand just said goodbye.
I waved at the guy working at the gas station to help me lift the bike. I asked about a welder. "Right there!" he showed. So I pushed my bike some 50m, found a welder, but he had no working welding machine. He gave me direction of another welder. Yeah, there was welding machine, but the welder was already gone. So I went to another place. Surprisingly there were both welder and a welding machine.
It is still raining like shit, I'm still wet, hungry and still need to go to the toilet. But I found the right guy to help me!
In a couple of minutes he was done with it. He even reinforced it a bit.
"How much do I owe you?"
"We bikers have to help each other."
He rides a Ducati ST3. And also making his own pocket bike for stunts.
Still raining and I have not done my magic exercises yet so I went to a cheap hotel in Kemerovo. Firstly the lady did not want to allow me enter the hotel as a foreigner (she could get a fine for doing that ) but I smiled at her and she said ok. But I had to get lost at 7AM.
