Talking Offroadpeople: Ural 2012



Year 2012 was the final year of our Ural trilogy. Because of heavy rains we didn’t do too many miles in this two weeks journey.

Unfortunately Walter Colebatch didn’t join us this year so nobody could write a heroic enough report to post here.
So here are some pictures and I’m ready to answer your questions.

High water in the rivers made us to return and to detour around Nugush Lake a lot of times



But this tries and detours were real off-road adventure that we came for


Wild nature spring gave us a time of awakening and new growth







We started like this



Who the fuck showed me this direction?


That’s what happens if you need a tow



We are searching for a cave


Found one


Funny hill


with good reward


No rest, select next track!


To unknown region




Sergey Intruder is a very special member




Relaxing evening


Tick food


Morning exercises




Special KTM additive


Another romantic morning start


and in a few minutes








For this ride I changed 950 for XR250









That’s what we call a rest








fresh ice tea


new avatar








People usually ask how we carry tables and chairs and other stuff


- we use support vehicles.


And if we don’t have enough vodka


we call for a helicopter.





Second part is coming

You cannot make that stuff up.

Over the top!

It could be a magazine advertisement to encourage people to buy SEALED WHEEL BEARINGS

Cool2

Glad you didn't forget the most important thing in adv-riding,
... to hydrate.

What a ride.
Great pictures.



Care to give some details on the journey?
One picture shows 16 persons, how large was the party?
In short, anything to post some more pictures, please.

My thoughts exactly. If I had a set (of balls) I'd consider begging an invite for next year. However, I don't think I'm man enough. Great stuff...

22 people in total. We tried to split in groups of 5 people each, but it never worked: Pate always wanted to fix every bike broken; some people didn't like to be in a slow group; the route changed often so everybody should be informed.

This is a very unique kind of traveling and we usually waisted a lot of time because of so many people involved. And every year I say to myself: 'This was the last time I traveled with this huge group!'

More pictures will be in a week because Mishutka, our photographer, is in a moving process.
