Guys we made it to Tynda! We're safe. Few scratches on the bikes but no injuries. That was one serious adventure. Maximum respect to you guys for going the full distance. It's seriously intense out there. We hit two rivers where we needed assistance. The first one from a local fisherman and his boat and the second a truck driver. We'll have the full ride report up as soon as possible.

You will learn far more from Colebatch than me. I just followed on like a nodding dog in the back window.

Enjoy the W BAM. Give my regards to THAT bridge - but don't try to break any records across it. One day someone will certainly go over the edge and I don't want it to be the Guys I enjoyed beer, bars, etc with in Moscow !

I am watching....
Tony,

We can't thank you enough for all your help and advice over the last month or so. It proved absolutely priceless for us out there. Huge huge respect to you guys for riding the full road.

No Vitim record breakers this time I'm afraid.

Full update to come really soon.

Pete

If you're interested then I've be happy to volunteer to help turn it into a Kindle book, while Kindles themselves are injured in their abilities to handle photos the Kindle software available to download on Android phones and tablets and iThings can handle colour pictures and hyperlinks to external resources, maps, videos, etc..

I think if anything this general propaganda battle will step up over the next decade as two conflicting geopolitical agendas over the future of Europe take place, with the American and British governments on one side and the Russians who will probably be joined by Germany and France and Italy as time progresses on the other.

Of course, the peoples of Russia, the US, Britain, Germany, France and Italy just all want to be friends ... but governments operate at different levels with different concepts about what is best for their peoples. There was something Tony said during this trip that really stuck with me ... if only our governments stopped trying to proscribe to us who are our friends and who are not, we could all just get on with getting along.

All the conflict and hatred around the place, even the Al Qaida stuff, stems from powerful people who have influence telling their 'people' who they should like, who they should hate, and why ... and then telling them to act accordingly. I for one am pretty sick of halfwits like David Miliband (Britains juvenile Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs) telling me who is "Britain's friend" and who isn't. That kind of propaganda should have died out with the likes of Goebbels.

I can tell you from experience, that pretty much everything we have been brought up to believe about the Russians, is utter crap.
Been reading this ride report for some time now and this is the best I´ve heard in years! I agree 2000 percent!

Huge respect to the Sibersky Extreme boys for doing the full distance. You guys really must be as hard as nails. A big thanks again for providing us with the inspiration to ride this route. It was one hell of an adventure.

Pete.

Hay que joderse...

The funniest thing is what he explains.... Crossed once, realized nothing was recorded due to flat battery, so he had to go back and cross it again... meaning then he crossed 3 times in a row in order to get it recorded...

Oh, and talking in the meantime...

And taking a hand out of the handlebar...

I guess next was doing wheelies...

Quins collons....

Well. Mukaltin.. not exactly, I would say...

Never been there, but for what I see I would say crossing that bridge be much bravest (or crazy!) than facing a Bull weakened by hours of torture and keep of torturing him to dead...

In fact, the mere thing of doing the BAM alone it's much more admirable to me...

Probably off topic, I know, but I just couldn't resist. As mentioned in this very same thread many posts ago, it's all about the preception of things that the official media sell to the outside; I wonder how the hell is this torero-bullfighting thing explained outside of Spain, but, to keep it factual, I can tell many people would feel offended or at least unconfortable if called a "torero" (which of course is not the intention of any foreigner identifying a brave spaniard with a torero!!)

Mode off topic over...
