    On my way to Krasnoyarsk to meet the two other Norwegians I stopped at a small motorcycle festival just outside Kemerovo. Motor Club "EXILES" Kemerovo. More about it here. There is a videoclip from the Unimoto show at the festival here.

    I had a great time at the Russian biker festival and was treated very good, included and welcoming. Great show and great party! I would definately not miss out if I was passing another festival like this again. Photos coming up soon!

    Like the old joke:

    What do you call someone who speaks 2 languages? ...Bilingual...

    What do you call someone who speaks 3 languages? ...Trilingual...


    What do you call someone who speaks 1 language?



    ...American. :lol3

    I'm sure it just me and he's probably a lovely fella....but hasn't this guy entirely missed the point. You sit on the front bit, go fast and avoid the shit. :muutt
    Maybe it's just me and moto-anarchy is funny for its own sake? But why would you?? Must be an age thing? :gerg

    It is however an excellent caption contest opportunity for the more imaginative of us??

    Brunette with the cowboy hat and white shirt says, "Eh, same thing as last year." Meanwhile, I'm thinking, "This poor man doesn't realize the snow melted!"

    Rod: This is part of many of the russian Motorcycle festivals and is called Unimoto if I got it right. Check out this video to see how the competition goes

    I am very happy to see this ride report back on track. I was genuinely concerned there for a minute.

    Must not be any McDonalds or Wendys in Kemerovo. Don't see any fat greasy stereo typical bikers.
    Hot women, bikes, beer and music! Must have been a blast.

    I don't think there are any MacDonalds west of Kazan.

    Russian Bikers do like to east Marinated Pork Fat though - it saves that whole turning it into Thick Shakes step. :rofl

    (and before you barf - it actually tastes good with some bread)

    Thanks for that clarification Steve. I looked on the link you posted earlier for more pics but the text's in Russian and I can only say "Goulash, Borscht ( BARSCHT!) , nye-panimye and khorosho" so not really suitabe for photo-searching.
    I'd look at it again now but I'm at work and the titty-patrol software might set alarm bells ringing with career limiting consequences. :lol3.
    I work in the nanny-State where they can work a man to death or breakdown with stress and pressure but don't let him glimpse a buttock or breast or you might offend someone's politically correct sensibilities. .You work it out.....

    I'd hoped to get to the bike-fest at Baikal but the geographically misinformed Mr Colebatch gave you all a bum steer and took you on a field trip instead of a beer and pussy-fest. ...so I didn't feel so bad not missing it.....I know what grass looks like. :wink:

    Don't you be agitating trouble Stevens, you feckin' toerag :deal

    I've talked to Mr C and we agree that In order not to trample over the rhythm of RR it's better that I post after the Biking Vikings get to the end. So I'm here hopping from one foot to the other waiting....

    I wish they'd get on with it though...... I'm all for building up expectation, but even Hitchcock threw the audience a bone now and again. Come on guys!! :lurklet's ride!!

    At this rate we won't get there 'til next Christmas. Don't you know how old I am?...I might not live that long! :lol3
