One day while Terry was doubling Tony around the streets of 'Vladik' (the shortened form of Vladivostok), he was chased and stopped by a Frenchman, Arnaud, who had recognised Tony as being one the Sibirsky Extreme guys. The website and blog we had running during the trip, www.SibirskyExtreme.com
, was obviously proving very popular with UK and European bikers in particular - so much so that we were now being recognised on the streets by bikers we didn't know.
"Hey you're that guy from Sibirsky Extreme!!!
" yelled Arnaud and Tony and Terry came to a halt.
Arnaud was a Frenchman, based half the time in Siberia, who had led a pair of other European bikers, Christophe from Switzerland and Mark from Germany, across the Trans-Siberian Highway. Now that he had delivered them to Vladik, Arnaud wanted to take another road back, and asked Tony about the Road of Bones and Vilyuisky Trakt.
