When crossing the border from finland via vyborg the russian customs issue a form with the details of motorcycle. this i subsequently found out is a visa for the motorcycle the one i was issued was for2 months and my personal visa was for 3months no problem until i tried to exit russia at the norwegian border where i was refused exit for m/cycle as its visa was expired its a long story but suffice to say i was detained for 5 days my bike was confiscated pending an investigation by kandaluksa customs iwas subsequently allowed to leave with an extended visa and was not penalised in any way although it appeares i was entirely to blame because of my ignorance of russian language
strongly reccomend a careful check of the dates on the relevant forms to make sure they are the samePosted by Charlie Miller at October 02, 2001 11:54 AM GMT
