16/5/99 Back over the border into Georgia near Qazax, again no problems and with a short stop in Tblisi to collect spares, headed out along the Georgian Military Highway towards Russia. The new belt and sprocket took 9 days to arrive from Australia, customs wanted their share but released the goods without charge as they were parts for a travelling motorcycle and would be leaving the country. It amazed me that all this could be arranged on a Sunday and within 30 minutes of locating the goods.

17/5/99 The Georgian Military Highway deteriorates into a series of muddy puddles and collapsing tunnels as it nears the Krestovy Pass, snow lies along the roadside and trucks gouge larger pot holes.
