Novosibirsk

Woke this morning with a very sore head due to far to much vodka!, Yuri and his sister in law prepared us some breakfast whilst we waited for Anton to pick us up. We got to the garage and Anton set about stripping Kev’s bike down to the injection unit so as to flush it out. Tanya made us coffee and I helped trying to source a rear tyre and some mirrors for my bike. By midday Kev’s bike was up and running without any misfires, so Anton gave each bike a clean (great chap didn’t speak much and looked a bit like Tom Hardy). Tanya could only source a 120-80-18 rear for my bike so took it but will only put it on when the part worn is knackered. We needed food and needed money to pay for the rescue and the work so by the time all this was sorted it was about 3 o’clock, to late to get moving to Omsk so decided to stay in the city for another night and leave in the morning. We found a decent Azimut hotel right in the centre, Kev was tired (don’t know why as he hadn’t done anything all day and didn’t even ride his bike all the way to Novosibirsk 🙂 ) so i went for a walk around the centre. It’s a big place and even has a metro, found an Irish bar had a quick beer and retired to the hotel for the night.
