Road of Bones-winter 2012-Open for business

so, short version
-april 02, monday start from YAKUTSK headed to east.
-expedition crew (all Romanians) 2 men in a Toyota-technical guys, one girl & one man - media team in a ARO (Romanian made jeep) and me - the stupid inaf for this on the legenday Aprilia Pegaso 650 IE
-weather condition cold like hell, some wind
-road condition ice, harded snow / on the Lena ice crossing the ice was translucid - blue fosforescent
-folling down many, but simple, not bad situations
-speed so slow, the jeeps crew near to sleep, maximum 4th gear at 5000 rpm - the speed indicator did not work for ages
-special grip increaser items screw in back tire, noting in the front one tires - Mitas 09 front and rear.
-special heat items electric gloves, electric foot pads, electric body warmer (never used) complete worker siberian suite and a supra suite self designed and a friend made it for me. Airoh Matisse with some modifications in heat and ventilate.
-day 1 too late start from Yakutsk, late end in midnight at Churapchea
-day 2 hard start from Churapchea - 2 times clean the spark plug - the computer push too much benzene and flood it so cold outside, below -20 overnight, the bike was standing outside, no garrage available. End in Handaga after ice crossing and long winter road on the river Aldan.
-day 3 started in handaga and ended to Teply Clutch short leg

Yes, pictures!!!!
I just came back last weekend from Chilia Veche at 5 degree in the night and I found it hard. My hands were ice cold. I can't imagine how is to ride Siberia in winter. I think you are a crazy motherfu..er.

Bafta!

I've taken the liberty to throw in a picture from facebook for those that don't have access. I think the link should work. Looks f-ing cold.
