The BAM Road - ultimate test of man and machine

Warning: this thread will contain images of killer roads, awesome forest, riding across collapsed wooden bridges, Russian girls in rather small bikinis, extraordinary hospitality and 3 experienced riders pushed to the absolute limit by one of the greatest adventure biking challenges still out there ... the BAM road!

The BAM Road is one of the (if not THE) toughest adventure roads left on this planet. The Road runs 4300 km (2700 miles) across extreme Siberia from Vanino on the Russian pacific coast through Komsomolsk, Fevralsk, Tynda, Severobaikalsk, Ust Kut, Bratsk and back to the Trans-Siberian Highway near Taishet.

The road is split in half roughly at Tynda. There are only a few people who had ridden the western half, between Bratsk and Tynda. Only one pair of guys (Poles of course) had ridden the eastern part (from Vanino to Fevralsk).

Never before our journey, had someone seriously attempted to ride the whole road.

So how tough was this road? Compared to say, the Road of Bones?? Well put it this way ... the Road of Bones took us 3.5 days ... the BAM Road would take us a MONTH!!!

Lets start with a brief pictorial summary (with some small pics) - a taster for what will unfold over this insane journey across Siberia!
