It's double interesting to me, bacause I speak russian and english equally well. And I've been to a lot of places out there as a kid and I can surely relate to the expiriences. Doesn't look like lots changed though)))

a question though: do you think a 450, say Yamaha WR450F, would be able to make the trip? In a rally suit, with some sprocket mods, a few extra bits and pieces and light luggage.

WR 450 might be too service heavy (too short service interval) - dont know enough about that bike ... can you increase the oil capacity and add a cooler? Stick on a JVO fuel tank and fairing kit?

Try a Husaberg 570 for a reliable light bike. - one of my colleagues ("Beta" of this parish) took one 19000 miles (30,000 km) this year up Ojos del Salado for our world record, then he rode it all the way back to Montana from southern Chile, with nothing more than oil changes about ever 50 hrs.

or a 2012/13 model KTM 690 with Basel Defy Rally-Adventure kit on it
