SO there is this thing here called "Close of Biker Season Day."
1) There is a biker season? (Y'all I grew up in FL, if you want to ride your bike in January, you ride your bike in January
2) The commemorate the close of a "season"?
3) bikers in Russia?
4) why not?
Ok, let's go!
I met up with Elena again and we went to "Close of Biker Season 2014" which she had never been to.
It was interesting to say the least. A BUNCH of bikes all lined up, and people just walking around
TOUCHING THE BIKES. Touching OTHER bikers bikes. Sitting their children on the bikes.
If you know anything about American biker culture, you will understand how utterly confused I was about this. Elena stated that at a show like this, why wouldn't you be able to touch the bikes? (To avoid getting your hand broken?) Apparently that isn't a thing in Russia. So now you know!
We also saw a biker wedding. I wondered (1) how she wasn't cold and (2) how did she ride the bike in that dress?
Afterward we went to Cinnamon Cafe where I had pizza. Now this was close to regular pizza, but still wasn't "pizza."
