Russian off-road people 2011: Dirt Again

This is a video report from our annual May trip.
This spring off-road people did south Ural.
14 Days,
24 People participated, using every bike possible. We had 2T 250 and Baja's as well as KTM950, BMW HP2 and even Aprillia 1000 CapoNord.
4000 Km from Mosow to South Ural and back to Moscow.
1400 Km of this trip was off-road.

And here are some pictures to give the idea of video:

And the previous trip is here:

Grom, looks like a mud-fest. Brilliant!

Unfortunatley, we do not have much real "off road" here in the U.S.; it's almost all on trails or fire roads, or similar. I love the challenge of finding a way through the forest (or desert) with no road at all.

Water looks pretty cold.

Oh, by the way, I love the Becherovka too. I can even buy it here in Colorado.

Thanks for sharing the video.

Wow! That is amazing. The most important thing to have brought was patience and a since of humor!

That's hardcore. Wet, miserable, muddy and a ton of fun.
