But, they are MUCH better riders than I am, and have much better bikes.
I just heard from Misha mate. After 5 days on the old road, they finally made it to Kadykchan! That must have been a serious slog.

Congratulations Doug... and may you enjoy many more.
You are certainly the star of the small screen (computer screen that is).
Thanks for taking us along with you on your stunning journey.

I don't have any tatoos. Not necessarily opposed to them, but could just never think of anything that I'd still want on my body 40 years from now. But THAT! Well, if I did the ROB then I think maybe I would put a Magadan tatoo on me somewhere prominent!

Hey Walter, we need separate patches for the new road and the summer road! Loyalists can get either one tatooed on their body when they finish either route!!

Good job Doug!

Howz about some more pics of all the nasty parts? Last I saw you were at a biker party with the neo nazis and then you finished. What about the middle stuff?

Here's something I'm sure Doug hopes is still stuck on his body after 40 years!
