Even though when hearing about sand on the roads most riders think about some dirt at the side of the asphalt strip, when it comes to Russian roads, things can be so much different.
Now, why is there a 2-inch layer of wet sand in the middle of the street remains a mystery. It may be the bad habit of East-European road workers of filling the holes they just made in the asphalt with rocks and sand before they repair the road.

I saw this more than once, and for them this crap is really convenient as no safety perimeter must be established and fenced, and usually no warning signs or lights are present, either.

So if you're a bit distracted and fail to see the miniature beach ahead, then it's crashing time. Dual-sport bikes are truly sweet on such roads, but they will not compensate for lack of awareness.

Oh, and the fellow is not exactly thanking the mayor for the nice street...
