Finally, the boat has arrived, but theres no dock space for it yet. Shit!
So we had a couple more days to kill in Vladi.
We went to visit Lucy, the Patch Queen, as I wanted to get my Road of Bones patch
Of course theres the gold one (for OSR) and the silver (no OSR)
But as Im weird, and did it on a Harley, I had mine custom made, Black & Orange!
We picked it up the next day, & took Lucy out to lunch. She’s a great girl, & a lot of fun. Anyone heading that way should stop in & say hello.
Finally, the boat docked, & we met up with Max to get the bikes.
But, as a foreigner, Im not allowed in the port. WTF? Wasn’t a problem in Magadan.
But Max could, so he went in to deal with the bullshit. Of course it took 4-5 hours to get the papers done, which I cant understand, as they didn’t cross a border, but hey. Its RUSSIA!
We FINALLY got the bikes out, & went to the Tigers clubhouse to wash them (was worried about salt air after being on the deck of the boat) and change the oil in the BMW.
Ben from Tennessee’s bike was there, & they gave it a bath before shipping it.
And the dirtster got a much needed bath
Finally, after almost a week in Vladi, we hit the road heading west……..
