St. Peterburg & Iron butt
In order to havethe best experience while driving through the world’s biggest country, you need to travel under the “naked” sky, by horse if possible. Therefore we set off for Sovetsk (Tula) on our 90 horses (Yamaha XV 1900 Midnight Star), determined to achieve an IRON BUTT, which we successfully did.
We literally arrived in a leap (1 746 km= 23 hours). I’m not going to describe this journey much; I just slept, ate and learnt for my leaving exams from high school on a motorbike. The best moment I remember is the momentI got off our Iron Horse and learnt to walk again.
Over the next few days, Ruslan (MC Black Legion, Tula) took care of us and arranged a perfect program, which I am extremely thankful for.

Our wheels took us further, to Moscow, where Dima Pegas met us with open arms and we spent a nice rest of day together.
Since my cousins live close to Moscow, we decided to visit them. 80 km were like a walk in the park.
The following day we drove off early in the morning, heading for St. Petersburg, where Vlad Watson welcomed us.

After those five wonderful days, we had to leave Watson and his lovely family and move on to Estonia. But first I realised that visiting Finland would only add 390 kilometers to our journey (now I wear a badge from this country on my jacket, too :) ).
Our journey started to come to an end. In Estonia we visited the president of the Star Riders - Aldo. (I tried to learn something in their language, but I couldn’t even remember “thanks” :D).
When I thought that we had already got through the most difficult part of our journey (IRON BUTT), I found out that I was wrong. Dad didn’t feel very well (he had a temperature of 39 degrees) and I don’t even know how we managed to get from Talin to Riga, Latvia. Our friends, Andrej “Chochol” and his wife Lena, were already waiting for us and I can’t imagine what we would have done without them. We were facing the last part of more than 1000 km (Riga- Lithuania- Poland- Trebišov), which looked like every bit like it (as dad wasn’t completely fit yet).
SweetTrebišov! We are home!
PS: 16 days, 7 countries (Poland, Belarus, Russia, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania.),5038 km, IRON BUTT,
Visiting many cultural and historical sites and other places, and mainly meeting people who will be in my <3 forever.
I thank all the people who helped me with this trip: my family, RuslanTolstyj, Dima Pegas, Watson, and my class teacher, Mr. Ilavský
