    It's called Novomoskovsk (New Moscow in translation :-)).

    This iron owl gave me a wise advice: finish with your annoying bike repairing, winter is coming :-)

    [​IMG]

    OK, another gearbox is here

    [​IMG]

    I've got that summertime, summertime sadness once again while disassembling it in autumn

    [​IMG]

    But this day has come. Beautiful Sunday with excellent weather. The gearbox works right. And my bike is on the road again.

    It is great to see your updated travels! I really enjoy your images. They show the true fabric and texture of Russia's home land, which is a good match for your tile!

    Trains drag racing. The white one is faster :-)

    My friend asked me to check 1974 motorcycle he'd like to buy. No problem. It's near my place. There is some "iron truth" in these old bikes.

    Great weather outside the garage. Beautiful warm autumn.

    What photos! You know it has been a fantastic ride when your bike has to be blasted with an extinguisher.

    That reminds me...

    In truth, I didn't catch this :-).

    Next short ride in Podolsk, 20 km from Moscow.

    Small bummer with my bimmer. I've lost my mirror between two trucks on this crazy circle city road.

    [​IMG]

    So my visit began with a moto shop. One mirror is for my motorcycle, and another one is for stock.

    [​IMG]

    Actually more better than it was. Everything happens for the best, if it really becomes better :-).

    This weekend ride.

    Day 1

    I started it on Friday afternoon, the time of traffic jams. This guy overtook me moving by the side of the road. He raised his hand and I stopped. He wanted to change his CBR600 for my motorcycle. He even showed me pictures of his sportbike. Beautiful white rocket. But I don't want to split up from my warhorse. So only pleasant communication :-)

    [​IMG]

    The jam is over, give me fuel please

    [​IMG]

    Orehovo-Zuevo and Pavlovskiy Posad, about 90 km from Moscow

    [​IMG]

    The harsh Russian hostel in Noginsk, USD 3 a night. Many workers from other regions have to live temporarily in such apartments.

    Outside is better this time.
