My father just sent this to me. Made me think of Doug.



AFP - Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Monday described leather-clad bikers as brothers and boasted of the "indivisible Russian nation" after roaring into a biking rally on a Harley Davidson.
The black-clad Putin led a column of bikers, their lights blazing into the night sky, who drove into a mass biking rally held on a former Soviet warship in the Black Sea port city of Novorossiisk.
Putin, an avowed fan of bikes, appeared to be riding the same massive three-wheeled Lehman trike conversion motorbike he rode to a similar meeting of the bikers in Ukraine last year.
Cheered by the biking faithful, Putin immediately took to the stage upon arrival and delivered a demagogic speech which managed to combine patriotism, historical memory and the motorcycle, state television pictures showed.
"I want to tell you, brothers, it's really great that you have not forgotten the heroism of the past," he told the crowd.
Recalling that Novorossiisk had been freed from Fascist occupation 68 years ago, he added: "These pages of history are in a striking way linked with the motorcycle because it was easiest to take children away from firing by motorbike.
"This historical memory is the cement which makes people of different peoples, ethnic groups and religions into one indivisible Russian nation, and creates a great Russia!," he said.
He said the defenders of Novorossiisk had a great slogan which was "relevant today for bikers and for Russia... Only movement forwards!"
The bike provides an ideal vehicle for Putin's trademark hardman antics which are becoming ever more familiar in Russia as he seeks to convince Russians he remains their strongman ahead of elections.
Russia is to hold presidential elections in March with many commentators expecting that Putin will seek to return to the Kremlin.
The massive rally was organised by a Russian biking group by the name of "The Night Wolves" and Putin now appears to have become firm friends with their leader Alexander Zaldostanov, who goes by the name of "the surgeon".
The state ITAR-TASS news agency described the rally as an "international bike show... with a patriotic direction."

I've been wanting to go to that big Night Wolves party, as I know some of those guys. I may try to go next year. It would be cool to get my picture with Putin.

I'm still in Vladivostok, waiting to get the bikes. the boat got here saturday, but no room to dock yet. it should dock later today.
Poly is more impatient than I am, she is new to the 'ship & wait' game. Its all part of travelling, being held up by shipping companies & other delays. Our bikes are not their priority, they probably dont even like doing it.
I'll be happy when we get them tho, as the sooner we leave, the less KM per day average I have to maintain to get to Bulgaria by September 23rd, as we are hosting a Horizons Unlimited meeting at the motocamp. her flight from Moscow is on the 20th. Its doable, but not gonna be much fun.

I really didnt think this thru all the way, when I decided to ride back to BG. If I had a lick of sense, I'd ship the bike to Moscow by train.
But, Poly wanted to make a bike trip, & Tom said we could use his, and as she supports me with my dumb ideas, I wanted her to have a trip this summer also.
Its only about 12,000 km back, how bad can it be?

Doug

I wonder if the irony of Putin speaking about the "indivisibile Russian nation" after riding to the rally on a Harley Davidson has escaped everybody.

Hearing the leader of a nuclear power talk like Alex is a bit unsettling.
Same look in the eyes as Putin's KGB glazed visage.
Spooky, my bolshy bratchny brat.
