PUNCTURE IN FUEL TANK as a result of a combination of

1. bad job of the German garage: they snapped off the ventilation tube for the fuel tank,
2. own ignorance: I noticed the problem, but didn't realize the potential of a vacuum caused by missing ventilation,
3. extremely high temperatures, around 38C = 100F, which started as early as Lemberg,
4. unsuccessful attempt to fix the puncture in Ternopil by a liquid metal patch, BUT finally

fixed in Czernowitz - where else? - in a backyard garage - where else? - one out of about 50 - 70 similar backyard garages, operating next-door to one another, by cold joint + copper patch

amounting to 20.00 = US$ 27.00 for 2 repairmen for 5 hours, compared to a damage of 1,000.00 = US$ 1,336.00 caused by my - former! - German garage?!

TRAFFIC TICKET, got between Czernowitz and Stara Zhadova, as a combination of

1. Ukrainian policemen avarice: about 8 (!) policemen at one single control point,
2. own ignorance: I left the motorcycle ID behind in my Czernowitz hotel,
3. not accepting one policeman as negociating partner, asking for his replacement,
4. getting another one, more flexible policeman, negociating with him alone in the patrol car,
5. phoning and presenting Mykola Kushnir, the Director of the Czernowitz Jewish Museum, as my local lawyer,


Yet two more Czernowitz success stories!
