Appreciate your comments, guys!
Wojtek, thanks for the invitation
I know polish relationship with russians and germans. But hey, there are thousands of people living in Ukraine / Moldova / Georgia / Belarus / Kazahstan which speaks russian as native language, but they are not russians! And anyway, we were just tourists without any symbolic, ambitions.
Well, as I said before, polish tourists / bikers I met were really nice people.
By the way, do you join any Burgman gatherings in Poland? I guess Burgmania annual event is polish?
Do you travel abroad on your Burgman?
That's true. But in that trip I did my best from gear and bike preparation for my passenger and that helped me a lot. I did:
- Airhawk 2 Seat Cushioning for both
- AirFlow screen raised to highest level
- Givi backrest + rack for top case, so passenger do not carry backpack
- Fullface helmet for her
- Music and intercom
- Touring pants / jacket + rain shoe cover + rainwear
- Thermal vest, trousers, balaclava and socks for her
And most important: stretch stops every 100 km or on request

Also I will add some photos here with my comments
5-th day of riding under the rain. Happy selfie with tractor on background
Interesting thing that you will see "Helsinki" sign in port of Tallinn (80 km away from Helsinki). Boat is really huge, you can wait 30 minutes watching only trucks leaving boat non-stop
"Postcard" to my american friends from finish aviation museum. Who will guess type of this WW2 Fighter?
And another photo from same museum which makes butt-hurt to Russians, because blue swastika (nazi-sign) was official logo of Finish Air Force from early 30-s, years before WW2
Crushed truck somewhere in Lithuania
I've started collecting stickers from every country I visited on a bike. Like adult GS guys
Greetings from Slovakia. Really nice country, like eastern Ukraine like it should be
Typical local road in Poland. Watch for elks / deers crossing roads
Poland rainbow (just kidding). Typical weather in Baltics, 50 km from Tallinn, Estonia
Also I've found another great mountain pass in Romania. It's really breath-taken, where you can run up to 5-lane (!) twisties with speed 100 km/h+ on 2000m altitude.
Sometimes summer happen even in Baltics
People swimming in baltic sea, where water temperature is +16C and air temperature is around +26. And this is warm for them!
Summer in central Finland. I guess same sights can be in Canada / Alaska
Finish people are crazy about environmental care. If you will cut your trees, then you must to plant forest instead within 5 years or you will get huge penalty. This crazy piece of fetish-machinery can cut down the tree, load log on a truck and then plant a tree with precision 5 cm! It can cut only specific trees, on specific area, it has GPS and tons of features. I guess it has so many functions as modern jet-fighter
Typical "dacha" (summer-house) in Finland
There are few thousands lakes in Finland connected with each other
