    We are progressing through Poland and will be in St Petersburg Friday next week for few days.
    Does anyone Russian knows where I could get my seat fixed and gel seat inserted? Is it possible? Is there a company doing this in St Pete? I am sUffering with my small hard seat!
    I have a sheepskin but still very bad. We found a bicycle shop and bought gel seat for cycles but very slim.

    See picture of my bike below.

    From St Pete we will go to Kizhi, then to Kem and Sloveski ( spelling?) islands.... Then we will see as we have a long way East to go....

    Hello, Maria!
    I sent a request to our brothers in St. Petersburg, the answer will tell.
    It is strange that in Poland you do not help :)

    Actually I just had an invitation from Sambor to stop at his house in Warsaw tomorrow, so I May get the seat fixed over there!

    In any case, I look forward to meet Russian bikers in St Pete and beyond! Always good to compare notes and get inside knowledge... And to practice my bit of Russian!
    Maybe see you on the road!

    I hope you find the right in Warsaw :)
    About pillow from sw-motech a small misunderstanding - it is air :(
    In St. Petersburg, you are invited to stay for a visit, they have a garage, they want to help you.
    I have a good friend in Latvia, Riga.
    If you are interested, I will inform contacts.
    Good luck!

    I know it's totally unrelated to the topic but I didn't want to start a separate one... In 1967 my dad attended the FIM rally in Moscow. He made notes in an almost unreadable way. In his text which I'm trying to decipher now there's a word (part of it unreadable) which looks like 'Dolmezista'. It's probably related to personal of the Intourist organization, maybe a guide or a translator. Can anyone tell me the correct word/spelling and the meaning?

    Sorry to have dropped in so cruelly and thanks for your help!

    Hello!
    The word taken out of the text and it is not clear. It is advisable to bring the whole phrase, perhaps will understand the meaning.
