There is so much rain.. everything is flooded. The old summer road is flooded and the federal highway to Magadan is closed due to flooding and wash outs. Its not doable now this year.

Tough choice between a road full of mud ,deep river crossing etc or a warn bed.

Good thing I am not the one taking that tough decision!

Enjoy , you are a lucky man!

Noah, or any of the rest of ya'll FF's dont know how close of tabs ya'll are keeping on Joe on the F800GSA but according to BMW facebook page he took a tumble off a sketchy bridge on the BAM on his way to the Vidim Bridge... Link to FB Page

Be careful out there Noah, sorry about the weather but good on ya for keeping a level head and not ruining your equipment by attempting it by yourself

Just saw this a few minutes ago and thought about posting it. Good thing they took their motos by hand across some of the bad looking bridges. This guy wasn't so careful...

Uh oh Will Noah make it around the world, or will a Russian sweetie sidetrack Noah for a good long while...

Happy for you Noah!

I found myself smiling while reading the above. I had fallen behind on your report trying to get my own plans underway. But man, I'm so glad I took a break from work to catch up.


Life doesn't get much better than that feeling i'm sure you have right now.

check your paypal, maybe take your new friend out for a romantic meal


Or whatever you see fit. Thanks for sharing your journey.

No we 'get it'. I am sure she is worth it.

Changes in plans are all part of the adventure. If everything worked as planned it wouldn't be an "Adventure". I'm guessing you had a "Bunch" of Adventure lately. Hoping you can slow down and relax, spend some time with your special lady-friend, and post some pictures of what you've been facing!
