... us a few hints with regards the cops in Azerbaijan, namely...don’t pay them any bribes ! There was a very interesting old fella in the queue also, who was telling us all about his time in the Afghan war and how he fought for the Russians...he even had some papers on him commending him for his outstanding achievements on the battlefield, he really was a happy go lucky chap.

... more shocks and I have since spoken to BMW. Unfortunately, they have never heard of anything like it before. I can only think that it was a freak incident or that one of my electric wires didn’t enjoy the constant gravel jolting it had over 200kms....
