My Summer 2013 Siberia Offroad RR

Hi guys,
Just a bit of promo for a RR I've started over in the main section that you might possibly overlook. It's at

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=961578

and involves a Transalp (retires hurt...) and a X-Challenge (makes it to Magadan).

Maybe take a look?

A couple of pics to tempt you:

The Transalp in mid clutch expiration:



The X-Challenge on the (dirt) road (not riding a river)

That Mongolia video will continue to haunt me! Falling off the Vitim Bridge in full riding gear, from that height, at that water temperature and flowing at that speed would have very serious consequences

Hope you and your brother are well. I was in Rotterdam for 2 hours last November when collecting the 2 Xchallenges from the shipping company in my van. I might be passing through again this summer, probably coming off a ferry from Hull. You around for a coffee of beer?
