The BAM Team

Tony and I were the same two chaps who had just ridden across Eurasia the hard way, as per the Road of Bones thread. But to recap ... Tony is a 67 year old pensioner, with 500,000 miles and 50 years of motorcyling under his belt. He spend most of his younger days in the European car rallying scene, but now prefers to get his kicks exploring Russia on two wheels. He lives part of the time in Moscow and part of the time in London. Tony's steed? an F650 Dakar.

Terry is the new boy in the team. Terry, a fellow Englishman, is midway between my age and Tony's. Terry's motorcycling pedigree includes racing enduros for 20 years. Terry had a huge amount of off road experience, and has got into the more adventure side of things recently. His extensive enduro experience would be a huge asset to Tony and myself when the going got tough. Terry had very limited experience in Russia however, and pretty much no Russian language. Terry's ride? An XT660R.

And then there is me ... on my G650 X-Challenge.
