    I can't see advrider after this site reconstruction. It looks like some type of anti-russian blocking :-).
    Thank you, Mark. I can enter through Great Britain with your program :happay

    Moscow was living by the world championship for the last two weeks. These balls were everywhere :-)

    [​IMG]

    And these strange people with flags

    [​IMG]

    Today many of them are out of sight, spaniards, sorry amigos. But show must go on and we have some amateur musicians here who can produce a lot of noise too.

    When I had heard an accordion voice and "Ole ole ole" at 2 a.m. I understood that this is the time to run away from the city :-).

    Another small ride. And my adventure bike struck again. Gearbox leaking got worse. These shafts and gears are destroyed. A beauty with oil tears...

    [​IMG]

    One guy from SUV passing by gave me a bottle of drink. So I could have a lunch, waiting for a tow car.

    Nothing else maters but look at the horizon :-)

    "These crazy motorcyclists. Why not use a car or four paws?" :-)

    [​IMG]

    I value your opinion, my friend, but I have two wheels more.
    The great opportunity to take a slow ride on my bicycle. Real rural Russia.

    I've got a friend who has long been a service man in Moscow motorcycle police. So he has a lot of parts for BMW. And he lives near Moscow. I have to try to get a gearbox.
    My way is to the train station. It's the easiest way to leave the city on weekend without a bike.

    About an hour and I'm in place. Small town, sunny day, pleasent walking

    And my friend with a gearbox :-)

    [​IMG]

    Tough luck. This one's broken too.

    [​IMG]

    So I have to continue to look for way to repair my steel horse. In the meantime I'm welcome to buy a ticket :-)

    New excercises with the gear box

    [​IMG]

    And it seems to be ready. But I've got some small new trouble. This is my cardan. Former cardan.

    [​IMG]

    It looks like my steel horse is sick and tired after 200000 km. OK, I need to buy some details and to make some work. Nothing new here :-).
    Casual pictures by the way

    @MadRider777 I keep seeing posts saying that ADVRider is blocked in Russia. Are you using a VPN to post? Good luck getting your bike running again. And keep the pictures coming!

    I haven't fix it yet :-).
    It works, but I have some troubles with 2-nd and 5-th gear. I'd repaired the 2-nd gear fork with TIG welding and installed it in a used gear box. But it didn' t fly.
    So now, I'm waiting for another used gearbox. My friend from motorpolice had found it and said it's perfect.
    Fortunately this old parts for old motorcycles are cheap. Good LEGO game for older boys.
    I have to learn from that man who can lift himself together with his horse :-).
