    Thank you for the invitation! Good idea. I would like to join you but has to work end of April:eek1. Belarus is still a white spot on my map. The Lake Ladoga area north of St. Petersburg is a good place to ride your KTM. You will love it.

    Great idea, but I would suggest to think about going in May.
    Winter in Russia is still not over(-8 in Moscow now, -10 in St. Petersburg, -13 on north coast of Ladoga ), and in Karelia snow in April - normal case

    Now in Pozen is about 0, I think end of april it will be quite ok in Belarus, Moskow and Petersburg. I was last year at 5 may in Kiev and it was 33 :) I now that is more on south but it was much higher temperature. When You have free time to go Motobear, Mixermsk? I think to go at 30 april because I have few days free... Probably I'll go with friend from Warsaw. Sorry for my English

    Hi Robas,

    I'll be back home just a bit north of St.Petersburg on May 4th. If you arrive sometime after that, I'd be delighted to share a ride, show you the city or surroundings, etc. Feel free to PM me to swap contact details.

    Hi, Robas! And why, after St. Petersburg you go back through Russia to Lithuania, Vilnius? I think a lot more interesting after St. Petersburg's go to Estonia (Tallinn), then to Latvia (Riga), and then to Lithuania (Vilnius)

    My husband and I have booked a hotel in Kiev (Ukraine) from May 1 to May 4, we will go there on moto with our friends. But if you will be in Moscow before or after these dates, you have my phone number - just call! Or you can take a ride with us in Kiev, if you have the time!

    Hi robas. I would also suggest Riga and Tallin as good to see. I went through there last year. I am trying to plan a similar trip leaving from Poznan but I need to be in Moscow about the 12 may. If I can change the timing I will get in touch.
