    That's what its all about. :nod:1drink Fantastic report, thanks for taking the time to translate, and welcome to advrider, "the asylum" as we like to call it. :freaky

    Youre adventure is the "real deal," and something that most of us can only dream about. Awesome report! Dont hesitate to translate your other adventures into English. Your written English is excellent! We all enjoy this very much! Well done my friend!

    And since you are fond of musical lyrics....."I was born to fly...." Summa :D

    "I'm freqeuently asked: why do I drive like that alone on a motorcycle? I can't answer clearly. Sure, the car is safer and more convenient. Despite all the talk, bikers are not trying to stand out from the world. On the contrary, they are much closer to it, comparing to anyone else. They are not hiding behind a tinted glass and warm roofs. The world is right here. Stretch a leg and you can feel the scratchy pavement, warmed up by the sun, sliding after you mile by mile. Stretch an arm and you can feel wind in your hands. Solo rain drops, getting under your coat like little spies or furious rainfall flow, washing off all the weariness, erasing your trails, and giving you a whole new world. Silent night, lighted up by a playful moon. Your usual life disappears. Everything is divided on the things you need, and the things you left there – behind. And in front of you is a road and nothing else. You see life in a different way. Different people, different goals, everything is different. And until you see it with your own eyes, until you feel it with your own body... you'll never get it, not a chance."


    Thanks, it sums it up perfectly, thank you for your insights.

    Thank you for the report and the pictures.

    Almost 99% :evil

    Regrding the BikeShow:
    The staff did a huge work in term of preparation, they are used to do the show since years at the same place "Sevastopol" but Novorossiysk it was the first time and they have to start from zero...
    The place reserved for the tents at Malaya Zemliya was equipped with showers&toilets but unfortunately with the heavy wind nobody was able to install their tents...

    The access at the show was free, yes free, with a plublic above 100000, you can avoid the security control...
