Kiril the navigator


I got very lost coming out if Kazan. It started off being the good kind of lost, the sun was out and I was getting a free you of the city by the hand of fate. I knew I’d eventually find the main road to Moscow, so I just watched the world go by.

I saw a sign for Nizhniy Novgorod, my intended stop in a couple of nights so I followed that. As I ran into an industrial estate with no escape, it turned into the annoying kind of lost. I came to the same estate 3 times by following the signs out of the city. I wasn’t impressed!

I’d past a guy on s BMW 650 a few times, going in various directions. I saw him again and I’d obviously been noticed as he flagged me down. He asked where I was going and after a quick chat he said follow me. Cool! I had an escort to the M7.

We went down back streets, closed roads, tram tracks and a footpath. I’d never have found it on my own. Just another example of a bike helping out another biker. We had another quick chat before I left. Thanks Kiril, good luck with your business.

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
