Thank you all so much for the amazing report! Many of us have been to amazing places but very few have been able to articulate our journeys as well as you all. Thanks again and I look forward to reading about the next sibirsky/transibir trip.

Nearly 300 pages of magic. A fairy tail of warriors in very far off lands. Battles fought and lost. Cultures exposed, the definition of motorcycle adventures, inspiring, ffffkkkking epic. Viva la Team Sibersky. I don't know how many times I have refferrenced Walter and company, shared pictures, copied text, PM'ed the crew (still waiting on the tool kit thread response Sir Coalbatch), drooling for an X Challenge. Survived a 7 day Baja trip two weeks ago and always felt insignificant in scale as compared to the Siberia summit. On behalf of the Court of and posers/wanna bee's all over the world, I knight the members of team Sibersky the best of all the best. Congratulations fellas and wonder woman. Huba huba!

Oh yes, thank you.

Great stuff, sorry to see it end, which makes me wonder if you could put up anymore pics that didn't make it to your write ups I bet you've got a few thousand for us to ogle.

I've been following this thread from the start and I have enjoyed so much of it.....then at Christmas time I was thinking, come on guys lets get this finished so I can concentrate on work again!
It's now into march and am still checking to see what else is here. But now that it's coming to an end I find myself more than a little sad

I know it sounds strange but reading about how well you were all treated by the locals on the way has me keeping more of an eye out for ways to help people I see on these kind of trips across my neck of the woods. I even ran into a Japanese guy riding a DRZ400 around Australia recently while I was driving from west to east and I couldn't help but feed or water him each time we crossed paths (3 different times).

Thank you all for your fantastic work in keeping us up to speed on every little part of the trip. Especially Walter, I'm sure that you'd be able to fill auditoriums around the world teaching seminars on epic adventure rides. If you're ever in OZ I'm sure we'd be able to get a location and whole bunch of paying ADV folk to listen to you.

Thanks again. It's been fantastic.

So where is the next ride?

Since this report began I've been checking for updates whenever I'm online. Great job to all of you! You've given us a wonderful perspective of the lands you rode through and the people who live there. Bravo!

Outstanding, Inspirational, Informative (technically and culturally)
Above all, hugely entertaining! I'm going to miss the daily updates, thank you ALL, for the time and effort.

I'll keep the subscription just to hear when the book and DVD are available.

Tremendous education here for those of us who have not traveled in these areas. Thank you to all TEAM members for taking time to post up this great report and for making it so entertaining. I hope to see all of you in another epic ride report soon.
