ROADS ON TOUR
On Harley Davidson Days St Petersburg tour we drive on paved roads. And in this part of Russia the quality of roads are not any better or worse than in Finland... mainly! The coastal road from Wyborg to St Petersburg is beautiful, but not the best road in Russia. Although it is not too bad and we take it easy!
