I will put my name in the hat right now for any of your RRs on this ADV in the form of a DVD, right now!

Your RR include pics of the country, pics of the people, pics of the bikes and most important to many of us, the history of all of the above. So complete of an adventure for those of us wanting to go, needing to go and those of us that may NEVER get to go. And the sound of those thumpers is music to our souls, well mine anyhow.

Go for it. I for one have no doubt you can pull it off, big time.

A one-wheel ramp leading up the centre of the former bridge embankment was useless to the big Urals and ZiL trucks. This had motorcycle written all over it. I could smell it ... the Poles were here. They must have done this last year. We were still hot on their trail!

Apparently a german cyclist couple improved on it:



You can check out their route, photos and stories (only in German) here.

Dvd

Walter, Finally got to watch your DVD. I thoroughly enjoyed both the movie and your extras. The movie was well done, however I agree with others that it could have been longer.

Like you said in an earlier post...listen to your gut and less to the so-called professionals.

How could I not order one of these? Colebatch, you've supplied a couple of the very best reports ever to be posted here, imo, more than happy to support future possibilities.

Russian Trucks

I ran across a couple of videos on Youtube ... Russian trucks - deep water ... damn hard core. I love it. Dont know where it is ... maybe even part of the BAM Road ... who knows.
