It's time to go on.

Next morning we woke up around 7am and first thing we saw was another billion mosquitos waiting for us outside.

So we had a really quick breakfast and started our next day, again nothing else in plans than to cover as many km's as we can

We arrived Oriol for lunch and sky was telling us that soon we gonna have to use our rainsuits

Next hours we spent driving in changing conditions, sometimes it seemed like we can avoid rain totally, then had to drive through strong rain which then suddenly ended. Road was mostly wet anyway and I had really scary moment - road was quite bumpy and after another bump rear wheel broke loose at 100km/h. Luckily everything went well after some fishtailing but I was really scared for now Those Mitas tires had serious problems with wet roads!
Otherwise it was really uneventful and sleepy afternoon. We had to stop for Red Bull few times

It was already evening when we arrived Kursk. Biggest tank battle was held near Kursk during WWII and the size of memorial in the center of Kursk was corresponding. We saw many wedding party's bringing flowers and taking photos there. Find a lonely biker from the photo ;)

Most of the russian tanks and other heavy weaponry used during this battle was also represented.

After Kursk more and more fields were filled with sunflowers

And it was again darkness coming and we had to find a campsite. Two days gone, two more days to Georgia. Today's route, another 650km closer to Georgia
