Border Run IV

May 19, 2012

Hard to believe, but time for my fourth border run to renew my temporary import certificate for my GS.  This time, I left Moscow early, at about 07:00.  I rode more than 500 km to Ukrainian border via Kaluga and Bryansk in the rain, and arrived at the border at about 14:00.  

At the border, the Russian border guard wanted me to enter Ukraine but suddenly relented, so I did not have to enter Ukraine and got back into Russian by about 15:20.  

I had planned on staying in Kaluga or somewhere, but I started riding back and didn't feel like stopping and got back home by about 21:30.  

All in all, 1000+ km and a border crossing in one day, not bad!
