Where did you cross the border? Driving from Kursk too I don't remember the 'no road'.

What next trip? I don't really think there is going to be next trip any soon (because of money)

From Kursk I went to Rylsk and then Glukhov. I don't know how to write that last city name in english ;)

Wow, Piotrek - that's some impressive report! Imponujace! Rewelacyjne!


I do have to say that your willingness to just crash and sleep anywhere, in a gas station, alongside some roadway, shows that you are a true hard-core ADVenturer.

I bow deeply... I am not worthy...

Good luck recovering financially - maybe that next trip is not too far off.

In order to earn money for your next trip,you could write a book describing your "secret exercises".
Thanks for taking us along.

What a sulfur that's over...

I bet that trip cost less than what I payed at my last service on the capo...

There is a lesson here and that is "if you want it you can have it"...

Highlights (from my perspective):

Well, yourself for one, you spent so many nights at the 24h roadside cafes, even on the table!

That guy from Чукотка, my hand got cramped by dragging the map over there!

The french girl on the 125 varadero...

So many people living their dreams on small bikes and small budgets, at least the rest of us lucky enough that some, like you, take the time to take us along through your Journals and posts...

Thank you again Piotrek!

Just read the entire RR from start to finish. Really cool trip. Sleeping on the tables would not have occurred to me nor would sleeping right next to gas stations or Kafe. I like more privacy.

Landscapes, the girls, your writing were all great. Thanks!
