Robert took this BAM road as far as Fevralsk ... after that he had to cut back and take the main Trans-Siberian Highway home as he was out of time on his Russian visa. Thats where he met those guys.
You can do the Trans Siberian Highway on a Goldwing if you want! (and people have). But the BAM Road is a very different proposition from the Trans Siberian!
We met them in Magdagachi - Transsiberian Highway. Visas were still valid 1.5 months, only the end of the holiday.
Colebatch, you have a 100% reason! Way of Moscow - Vladivostok, you can ride Honda CBR 1000R. Only a short stretch of the Chita to Khabarovsk (+ / - 900 km) wide is a typical "Russian way".
