Part 2

The picnic is over, itís time to go.



Space trooper is always packing the first and using beaverís stool for balance training.



The track winds between pits and bumps but firmly goes up to the pass.





Locals live by cattle grazing and logging and bumming cigarettes from tourists



Maral farm



Che as a real creative person likes to stay in a beautiful flowerbed



Grom rides the Altai Valley





Cherished cafes and gas stations.

It seems we just left from civilization, but the dependence remained!





The food is finished. Gas tanks are full. Texts are sent.

We select the second trek. The first one was for warming up.



Our way lies through them national reserve, through ancient tombs, old believer villages and impassable jungles





Protected roads in the national reserve





It may seem a landscape photo. But no, it is a picture of the road. And the horizon is not skewed.





We have a trek, but itís not possible to move along it. And the rain starts!

Wet grass on a slope glides so perfectly.

We try to find a loophole.



I saw this clearing 100 times on sat image. The road is here!



By joint efforts we shook Pateís confidence that the road is here.

Andrew Big went around and in a while we here the roar of the engine on the other side of the slope. We found a detour!





But we are OFRP! And part of the group goes straight ahead.







After a little rest we came to a stream. Itís not clear how Andrew passed it alone.



Mountain stream passing. Old school hardcore.





Cow shit on the rocks in the creek - a dangerous substance!





A long uphill.
Clay, rocks, rain and luggage are petty factors that individually can not scare a traveller,
but gathered together can deliver quite a few pleasant moments to a cameraman.













Lift and push is half the battle, you have to run off!


And repeat



Andrew ride cool and stable at any mountain on any bike



Next stage is waiting for heroes



Well-deserved smoke break on the second ledge. There is another rise ahead.



On the top



Formation and report on capturing height 2500



Altai meadows, snow in the crevices and nobodyís around.







Андрюха может ездить и по наклонным поверхностям, без использования спец средств.

Вот что значит КОСМОДЕСАНТ!

Andrei can ride on inclined surfaces without special equipment.
That's Space Marines!





A picture for girls



Landing on an alien ice asteroid



Che is ready to receive humanitarian capsule



You can get to the moon on an elephant.



ZEN. Members are high and meditative, height 2700, glacier, absolutely clear air.





Smoke break is over. Key to start!

Unknown land ahead.





The locals are alerted. Strange objects are inexorably approaching. Gang is waiting for commands from the leader.





Glacial lake. The water is clearer than glass



There is beauty around. But donít relax! One clumsy movement and Oops!



Andrew is making contact with Altay people. They bum cigarettes and slaughter a sheep.







In the evening there was storm as usual, including rain and snow.
Fierce gusts of wind from the glaciers happily tried to make friends with us,
blowing out a sodden gear, crawling over

nape of the neck with itís spiny chilling tentacles.

And there was no place for camping.
We had to do impossible and make mad dash on a scree.

Then we would save from coming water. Slippery boulders happily turn their sides in the icy streams and quietly whisper: ĎCome on, motherfucker!í

We reached the crest, urgently put an awning, removed wet clothes,
the cold permeates us. Hot dinner saves the world!
We set up our tents under the awning and drag them away already assembled - space savvy

#0 and #1 dayes

The majority of participants of this travel arrived to Barnaul by airplane.
Motorcycles were transported by train.

Only Mishutka arrived to Altai by moto.
He very much doesn't like airplanes.
By first day he had about 5500 km across Russia.

We met near the village Manzerok where in this
time was local enduro competition.
Here we spent our first night in competition camp.
In the morning we change tires to off road.







Big Andrey took competition trace by its motorcycle with baggage while we loaded our baggage: )
We spent the second night on pass in the wood on the road near very loud mountain river.
The flat place anywhere wasn't.

Here our track to meetings place and track of the first day travel:

#0 #1 days track

Guys you are realy crazy. I envy you just as much as i love your trips.

Tech question:

What tire is that one with a red stripe on it. I saw it on Che's rear and i think is also on the Pete bike.
Is this tire suitable for a heavy bike a.k.a. porky F800GS? Is an offroad only tire or it can be used on asphalt also?

thanks:)

We use Mitas C02 and C05.

They are very good for long time off-road.
They work at F800GS about 10000 km.

To a travel place we go on any old tires.
We come back by asphalt with this Mitas.

They are offroad only tires.
They aren't intended for asphalt but quite for it are suitable.
