Last week I had a ACL surgery. ACL refers to the front cross ligaments of the knee which in my case was totally torn in a skiing accident. Thankfully I am recovering good but seems like I'll be at home one more week, so I thought this might be a good time to share our last summers ride to west Russia. We have started from Kayseri, Turkiye and after covering 8500 kms we have finished back there. Our trip took 18 day in total with 13 days of riding. My wife, our bike and yours truly. This was our well done "Introdution to Russia". And our stops were as follows: Kayseri, Findikli, Kazbegi, Volgograd, Balakovo, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Moscow, Glubokiy, Goriachy Kluch, Dombay, Vladikavkaz, Kars, Kayseri. Here I give some teaser pics, rest to follow.
