Question Rubber...

Walter/Tony: Did you order your tyres from http://www.motorezina.ru/ ???

There website doesn't list Michelin Desert's or T63's (my personal favorite). Have they stopped stocking them or were they just out of stock? I seem to recall you previously collecting Desert's in Sibera which I presume came from motorezina?

EtronX - I'm used to Scandinavian's putting native English speakers to shame with the spoken word, but now you've managed it with the written to. Nice job

On my way to Krasnoyarsk to meet the two other Norwegians I stopped at a small motorcycle festival just outside Kemerovo. Motor Club "EXILES" Kemerovo. More about it here. There is a videoclip from the Unimoto show at the festival here.

I had a great time at the Russian biker festival and was treated very good, included and welcoming. Great show and great party! I would definately not miss out if I was passing another festival like this again. Photos coming up soon!

Loving the report. Best one I have read yet and I have enjoyed all of Walter's others.

Like the old joke:

What do you call someone who speaks 2 languages? ...Bilingual...

What do you call someone who speaks 3 languages? ...Trilingual...


What do you call someone who speaks 1 language?



...American.

I'm sure it just me and he's probably a lovely fella....but hasn't this guy entirely missed the point. You sit on the front bit, go fast and avoid the shit.
Maybe it's just me and moto-anarchy is funny for its own sake? But why would you?? Must be an age thing?

It is however an excellent caption contest opportunity for the more imaginative of us??
