7-12-13 Well, I hoped to be on the road this afternoon. Got the bike running a little after 4pm.I needed to go to the store to get some money. Stas said it was closed today for some reason. Then he said we were eating in 15 minutes. I still planned to cross into Mongolia today. A biker friend that was eating with us, said the border closes at 6pm. I got on the internet and confirmed it. I guess I'll wait another day to leave. My bike was leaning against the white car in the back of the garage for 4 weeks. Here's the engine nearly finished. And ready to see the bike and motor married again. I hope they get along better this time. After buying oil, a spark plug, and other things today, we stopped where Sasha works a day per week. He's retired military. But he still works there as a civilian part time. He picked up some gasket material there.He cut out several complicated gaskets from the material. He impressed me.
