Russian north, enduro ride

This summer we had successful travel on the north of Russia.
We have crossed 3 regions.
Vologda,
Kareliya,
Peninsula Kola (Kolsky)

We wished to reach extreme northern point of Russia moving only on offroad,
without asphalt, to use only small local wood roads and footpaths.
Certainly, it turned out not always.

Video:

For this adventure were used BMW 800GS, BMW G650XCh Honda XR650 and 2 XR250.



************************************************** *****************
Vologda:






















GS800 is Very heavy


The fallen trees










The chain has come off










Magic lake

Now that's some deep woods riding you've done there.. Looks like it's very tough going and there were only 3 of you to lift and push the bikes?

Thanks for sharing your adventure with us

This site has demanded 7 days.

The easier bike the better. You should carry with yourselves a lot of cargo,
therefore is better use 650сс.
It either XR650 or BMW G650X Ch.

zimnik - is any frozen surface on which it is possible to go in the winter.
In the summer, on the same place there can be everything. Even an insuperable bog or lake.

If the road is "traktornaja", means on it can pass it:



Then you can hope to pass on bike

in this mudd max 60-100km

Cool camp stove!

Looks like a very memorable trip. Thanks for showing it to us.

You Russians have some great rides. But I don't think I'd like the swamps you have to ride.
