Another top notch update. This RR has literally lifted my annual winter depression.

There is no land route to Kamchatka.

There is a land route to chukhotka but involves a long barge journey on river kolyma.

Abramovich has not been governor of Kamchatka for about 5 yrs now.

But maybe there are plans for one? I stumbled upon this picture of the great man quite a while ago, and on the background map there's that brown line going northeast from the Road of Bones and then south to Kamchatka. No idea what the brown and purple lines mean, though; it was just an illustration to some general news article about Russia and Putyin.

I think it gas pipes,
probably even still not constructed.

That that is visible on Sakhalin is pipe, it is the truth.

Those lines might be part of the "futuristic" Siberia-Alaska railroad/pipeline construction project... Given Russia's and Canada's oil and natural gas reservers, the project might makes sense... Obviously, there are plans to do it in Russia:

Canada is considering a railroad as an alternative to the Keystone XL and to have better access to the Chinese market:

This is one of the best recordings I've ever seen of "why we do it". After what you've all been through on that particular day, and the journey in general. to reach this point, satisfied, tired, confident !!! Thank-you all. I have enjoyed every post by the riders and the readers. If this was a book I would not have stopped reading till I hit the back cover. BRAVO!!!

Tech questions

Some questions:

1. why did you choose ktm fairing over the Touratech one?
I ordered the touratech fairing with out the lights, installed the infinity projectors my self. Touratech fairing has the stainless steel plates that make the frame stronger, I clued them to aluminium and welded the spacers that are between to the alu frame plates.

Also I can not belive how you thoght that the Erik frame that is full of holes would stand a chance .
Beacuse Cole had problems with touratech frame with out the stainles plates.

2. how did he alu rear frame survived?
I ordered the XXL tank and luggage rack from erik, but when I started to bolt it to alu rear frame I gave up, the alu frame is so weak and problem (cracks) waiting to happen (I hate technical problems that take up the time on the road)- so I got the steel frame- and it is the real deal (M6 holes for rack and tank. So I will bolt it all together with Nordlock washers and thread clue)

Thanks for the great RR.

I am on the 3 year bike (g650xc) building and testing schedule and then will be off to the same roads you were- big plus for me I can speak russian.

"Friendly to his heart"

We spent maybe 30 minutes with him. It was a good 30 minutes. It is very nice when you meet a man like him. Friendly to his heart. I start to believe in the human race again We took our farewell pictures and drove the short distance into Yuktali.

What a great way to describe a person!!!! "Friendly to his heart"

Bears

When you guys camp and cook out in Siberia, do you have any concerns about bears? Any encounters?
