Smile past weekend ride

Rode to Vologda - an old Russian city about 500 km north from Moscow. Left home at around 10 am and 6 hours later dropped the bags at hotel "Spasskaya" in Vologda. Had dinner and walked around the city center. The weather was nice and the city was cosy and neat. I like Russian cities not ruined by war and bolsheviks.
The next morning visited Kirillovo-Belozersky monastery(14th century) 120 km north from Vologda. Very scenic place and a lot of foreign tourists. Enjoyed some time there and headed home. 1300 km and very nice weekend.

I'm with Chuck. It's really nice to see your perspective.

How's the wife liking the FST?

She was my pillion, unfortunately. Has not yet recovered her brocken wrist - she is unable to operate the clutch yet. And you can imagine how I suffer - to ride with the pillion and to hear the rant about missing FST
But we hope in 10-14 days she will resume riding(touch wood). I have to install Baehr interbike comunication device with PTT on her FST and Laser slip-on(she prohibited to do it though, I mean Laser)
There were four busses with foreign tourists there - all English speaking at that time.
Then all the busses left and we remained in a silence. WOW! That's it!

Take care!

The roots...
You should have paid taxes and still remained the citizens of HRM

Do I look like an American from Fort Ross, CA?

The bike was flawless in the air t=+30+32C. I tested my new bullet camera and Arcos 504 HDD. Did not like the quality of the picture - of the first cell phones cameras. The Arcos surprisignly well standed the road bumps but switched off after three hours of work due to low battery. Though the manual stated 10 hours of work. And it became so hot travelling in my tankbag without ventilation that I could boil water on it.
Also had a chance to test the new headlight protection from Australia - worked great!
And installed the Motolights - first did not like the look of the bike but when switched them on - loved them! Where is Just Joe with his "New Year tree"?
And what made me uneasy were the side bags - the "free play" of the back support is about 1 inch now. I have to do something - it's high time.

Take care!

That was kind of a "loaded" comment easy...

there are so many types of people in the USA ANYONE could be an American...but ya, you do kindof look like a Californian!!

what is HRM?? Ya lost me on that one!

My boss did a 3 week trip a couple months ago and that inlcuded a tour in Russia. Maybe he was on that bus! He and his wife said it was fascinating, they really enjoyed the trip.

My folks were there about 20-25 yrs ago and said the same thing.

I can never believe how big that country is!

Ft. Ross...last Russian outpost on the California coast. Russians eventually sold it to John Sutter, the guy that had the property in the foothills where gold was discovered, starting the California Gold Rush
