Building bridges to the BAM

Excellent idea - based on this RR, somebody could do a great job in building a few bridges to the BAM

I have been wondering how to manage those railroad bridges with my sidecar and what to do if a train would come

I so much enjoy this RR - cheers guys

Magadan Bags

I see they are back in stock Adv Spec.


How many of the Cable locks do you use 1 enough for both sides or 2 required?

Wrapsafe Adjustable Cable Lock

And are you using separate vertical straps on the bags or is a single strap used to secure both sides?

One per side - Amazon normally has them at good prices

Hi far,
No, I've never ridden an XC.
I tried to buy a ready-prepped one about this time last year when we were planning-it made sense to ride the same bike as the other guys if possible. A Dutch (I think) guy had built it but then decided he wanted something different-no idea why.
He had a buyer lined up but the guy was a little slow in ponying up the "green and folding" so I had an opportunity-but when the buyer realised he might lose the ride he paid up and my chance was gone . Such is life. I like the 690 now despite the pump issues early on. Once you chuck a load of money into them they make a great overlander-but no one make one out of the box now so you'll need to do that whatever bike you choose.
Sherri-Jo Wilkins has been on a long RTW ride on hers for a couple of years and contacted me the other week about hers-I think she was having pump issues..quel surprise!
She now has more then 100,000 kms on it and it's still all good, so they'll do the miles.

I'll tell the return story once the Biking Vikings complete their tale-but it'll seem pretty tame in comparison.

It is the subframe that holds the fairing, dashboard and lights.

Video bam

Hi guys.
Here is a beta version from the BAM road. It is just a bunch of videoclips thrown together and is not very well edited at this point. Since theis is just a pre-release and not a final version I have chosen to password protect it. So consider this as a special beta version for you Advrider inmates. A better version with tighter editing will be available at some point later.
Photographers: This is a collection of videos filmed by the whole crew so thanks to Geir, Erik, Walter and Terry for your contribution.

Check it out here and use the password "rtw2012"

Whoa!!! Great video!!!! I really loved the music at the Vitim crossing.....always makes my heart race! I look at that pier in the water about 2/3 of the way across and it really shows how high you are and how strong the current is. Thanks for sharing!!!

Great video Steve.

A shame our trip ended just before you guys joined.
I would have loved to travel with you guys (and could have used the man power to push my bike through the deep rivers)
