wow....wow..hardcore for sure
 
Great vid.:clap:clap

Could you please share with us what all the bikes were in the video? I spotted some i recognised but not all of them.

You guys should try riding in the north in canada, lots of riding like that and some great roads, both paved and gravel as well:deal.

And, although a little unusual, the music is good too:super. was that all the same band, or several different ones?

Great riding by all, congrats.

Great video....
One day I will come back to my motherland to do a ride like this. One thing I miss about Russia and wasn't able to find here in the land of the free is freedom. The ability to do rides like this is amazing. This is why to me Baja has the same vibe as Russia, the feeling of freedom. :clap :clap :clap

why do these russian ride reports always look like a bunch of ex-military guys who aren't happy unless they are out in the middle of absolutely nowhere, enduring miserable conditions in borderline impassable situations? :dunno

but who cares, keep 'em coming! :thumb

Maybe because those guys live in a huge city of Moscow(15 mln of inhabitants) and are happy get out of it's concrete-asphalt jungle sometimes :)
