    Nice Beemer Dan. The Ducati was always a bit extreme for my old bones!

    Wow Dan. Thanks so much for all of your care. Vlad (or RoboVlad? or The Six Million Ruble Vlad?) is certainly better off, as are we.

    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    So is Vlad ... or roboVlad going to go back on tour soon or what?!? What a great thread ....

    He has a nice, cozy home for a few days in Australia if he wishes to visit.... he could visit all of the fantastic landmarks in Sydney, or get taken to some extremely secluded, wonderful rainforests / coast / mountains of New South Wales!

    There are also some big, big events out this way that he will most certainly be allowed to attend ....

    His bed is ready - let me know, please!

    edit - my bad, I see he has started using his passport again. OK; well, when the time comes, as mentioned, his accomodation is ready!

    My Duc was used mostly for track days. There is nothing like the feeling of Michelins coming up to temp and sticking to the track while cornering 80+ MPH with knees dragging, pegs grinding, headers touching down lifting the rear tire off the track. Heart racing, adrenalin pumping, tunnel vision, total focus while on the track, yes it is fun and dangerous.

    Vlad was shipped to DolleDolf last month. He was to ship it off to svorkoetter.

    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    Vlad made it to my door a couple of weeks ago and due to work and family (basically 2 combined families) pressure it sat a little over a week on my desk.
    But it did finally make it out of its box and spent a couple of days on the prowl with me.

    A fine watch, nice to see what some attention from a knowledgeable amateur-watchmaker like Dan and some polish can do for a simple amphidirskie. It kept great time.


    It is now on its way to Canada.










    Normally there is a big queue for this cable ride. Now we just walked on.























    Pricey calories. Not much else .....












    I thought about subjecting it to the Dolle Dolf's old russian watch waterproof test (TM). Which means taking it to this park on the waterslides and in the wave pool. but I thought better of it. I did it to this watch and, obviously, did not fare too weel. It had to be taken apart and dried out. It works fine now.









    People travel for miles to get to this water park. But it is -almost- next door to me. So on a warm day this is where we go and cool off with or season passes. This is an expensive park, so we are in the black after three visits. Don't let the clouds fool you, it was quite warm! But it was very quiet, to my surprise.



    The kids thought the whole Vlad idea was very neat.















    My third born still has to develop his potential ....







    My second born, #4, is a bit of a soccer progeny (unlike his father). So we travel to distant places in the New Jersey /New York metro area for matches of this Elite-Under 9 team. By the time he signs his first UKP200k/week contract with Liverpool FC it will all have been worth it Knowing my luck it will probably be Everton or Manchester United

    I was wondering if it is possible for Vlad to come to the Caribbean?

    Hopefully I can get a chance to meet him and show Vlad a few spots here in Dominican Republic
