I'm not sure whether them Russians know what they're in for rock 'n roll!

Oh and by the way, I'll give you a moment to check what's so particularly interesting about this picture

My sticker made it to the UK....
That also indicates that it has done more miles then its brothers.
How is it holding up, not whining too much?
Still did not have yours though.

Cheers

Picture is strange. Looks like your shadow is facing AWAY from the bike, but the bike is in the picture, NO?

Anyway, I have my bike with Stefan Knopf in Heidelberg after a ride in May-June, but I am thinking of a September-October ride that is like yours but in other direction: Germany, Swtitzerland, North Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-H, Montenegro,Macedonia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Georgia (to visit a friend), Russia (Moscow, St. Petersberg), Baltics, UK, Germany.

Good luck with your ride. Hope to hear more.

Hahaha, I just understood what you meant - I think it's due to the peculiar way I have to hold my cam to take a picture whilst looking on the screen, since the screen is on the side of the helmetcam

Good luck with the final things... hopefully you won't find as many last minute things to worry about as I did

The start:



Heated, drilled and bolted up:



Cut into shape:




Some paint:



The end result, not my finest paint-job though:




Cheers

Love the work there! I've been meaning to do something like that to remove some of the draft on my elbows.

Well that is it, my last shift just ended.
That means no more work for me for 16 weeks.....uhm well not at my job that is.
A couple of prep days and then I will be on my way.
It feels unreal and I am both anxious and nervous.
Nothing to be scared off yet, but I keep the anxiety-O-meter close by.
Some more bike-prep-stuff photo's coming soon as there are still some things to sort out on the bike.
Keep you posted....


Cheers
