10/20 -- D2 - 20/10 - Rostov on Don / Voronezh - 545км
Start along the Don for a few kilometers before joining the M4. Many work in progress on this "highway" there are still some portions with 2 lanes but big improvement since my last visit in 2009.
Anyway the 4 lanes has never been and will never be the breeding ground of the Ural.
7C it was a little "cold" especially without the windshield. But today no rain.
So yesterday I saw three sides today just a IZH front of a house and still not see a motorcycle on the road ...
That night the hotel is a bit more expensive: 2000rub but the room is heated and the restaurant is open.
I still have 500km to reach Moscow, but instead of joining the capital on Friday night and take the shower (rain announced) I will make a detour to Ryazan. This allows me to leave the M4, take a short 380km stage quietly and Saturday I would join Moscow it's 180km from Ryazan.
