Default My summer trip 2008

Hi everyone! First of all please sorry for my english - I'm from Russia, but I like to be also with you all here, so i'll try to tell you the story of my trip this summer.
I'm riding several years but before this summer didn't go on my moto so far from home. I decided that I want to see Black Sea and in august I was ready to go. It was 2000km from home but it doesn't scared me, because I used to trust my bike
First time I was riding alone but then meet several people on motorcycles and we went together. 2 days - and we was there. My dream became true! It was awesome... There was a huge bike-fest - there I meet many interesting people, saw wonderful bikes...
Then three weeks on the sea and only then - back!
Several photos:

Nice trip. I bet Russia has lots of places to ride. I'm up for a trip to the Kremlin.

Looks like fun - I bet that was a great spot for camping.

I always wanted to tour Russia. I've read everything I could about the place and have often thought what an interesting country it must be to ride, so many different cultures and so much history.....interesting, I'm glad you're here. I read an article a few years back by another young lady who rode around the Chernobyl area taking photos of the buildings and landscape, pretty fascinating....

Neat stuff, how'd that Transalp run? But you had a great time. What's next? The Bospherous?

As my Russian grandmother would say "Oichen Karisho!"

Send us some more ride story stuff from Mother Russia, we have a lot more in common than most people know.

Oh, Transalp was great... It was my moto-dream for 4 years and I was the happiest girl when I've bought it... But it was very old (15 years), and after the summer 2008 when the whole distance I've ride on it was 35000km it just nearly "dead" and I've changed the bike... So now it is Pacific Coast and because it is not an enduro I want to visit Europe... My plan is Portugal, Lissabon and there the most western point of Europe - Cabo da Roca
Regarding some more stories from Russia - I'll try to find some interesting photos and tell you then about our trips!

Well congradulations on the new bike. I didn't know Honda sold the Pacific Coast in Europe, I thought they had the Deuville instead. It's a good solid bike, should get you anywhere you wish to go.

Cuddy and I have both been to Rota, I think that's the western most point of Spain at least.

Somehow I suspect you're already on "The List" there.

I think I'm that list everywhere. Kenny, you going to Sturgis or what? I think plans will be made by May. Think about it.
