Hi!
Great idea, and there are no problems on this motorcycle!
About Murmansk - try to make a video or photo of interest.
Bike hotel with no problems.
Welcome and hello to the wife!

Hi!
It is up to you, Petrozavodsk - ordinary town, Kizhi superb.
The road around Lake Ladoga very bad and therefore like KTM ��
There interesting to visit the marble quarry, lakeside very beautiful.

This monument to the leader and the first nuclear-powered icebreaker below his name:





It is a museum, it has tours.

Rear see a new nuclear-powered icebreaker in the floating dock.
