05.25 Irbit
Early morning I arrived at Irbit after 2 flights from the south. Nicolai is there after 3000km with the Gear Up. (His pictures and report latter).

On the car park of the Hotel we met with Ilya.
Then we went to clean the Ural, one young guy start to discuss with us (UDF even in Irbit) and he ask us if we know the "bike cemetery"?

Why not? So we went with him, we didn't know he was a policeman himself until he open the locked gate to the "cimetery".
In fact it's at the local police station where they have all the bikes immobilized for various infractions, many of the owners never came back to collect their bikes as the total amount of the parking bill is higher than the price of the bike...

Then back to factory for a visit at the nearby Ural museum.

The Retro should be ready by the end of the afternoon.

After 3000km:

Police station:



The Retro was ready by 9pm but we were already back at the hotel and we will pick it this morning.
