Russian biker gang makes it to Berlin for V-E Day commemoration

[Ed. – You’ll remember these guys were originally denied entry into Poland back in April.  Looks like Poland eventually relented and let them come through, on the quiet and under heavy police escort, by another route.  These yo-yos are a long way from Easy Rider: besides having their own blog, where they appear to communicate using high-quality photography and complete sentences, they’ve gotten over $1 million in subsidies from the Russian state to put on children’s concerts, in which they proclaim that the West is trying to destroy Russia.  Says The Guardian:

A historic motor rally by Russia’s Night Wolves bikers to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II has wrapped up in Berlin, where the bikers rode through the center of the German capital, Russia’s RIA Novosti news agency reported.
