WHY NOT!?? Buggy followed by thumpers!
Well it did say 2+ wheels?
And which site to post anyways?
Donīt worry, this ainīt a thread about a 4 wheeler, this is a thread about a combined project! or 8 wheels if you like! The combination concists of the showed KINROAD 650 Chinese buggy and 2 motorcycles, one Yamaha XT 660 and one Cagiva Elefant.
The Buggy is considered a support vehicle which is carrying equipment normally suited for two persons on a motorcycle with the difference that it carries an overload of water and fuel, in this case petrol.
Itīs probably gonna get another engine and mnost likely either a Yamaha XT 660 or a Suzuki DR 650.
You guessed it...the choice is between using a carburetor or injection.
The choice is yet to be made...
Why a Buggy?
The goal is to assist two motorcycleriders on doing an IRONBUTT (www.ironbutt.com) on doing a what we would like to call an saddlesore-afterburner! Moahahaha
The wheels on the "Buggster" are 13" in which we will have two sets, one as wiewed and one as per offroad tyres, the buggster will be equiped with 100 liters of fuel (5 x 20 liter) and two 29 liter outboardtanks filled with water,
two drivers and fitted with almost all luggage in honor of the motorcycleriders.
Why not use an ordinary car?
...because Iīm driving and I didnīt feel like it! ...No sport!
I wanna get the feeling the riders of the bikes are into! We who ride in the support vehicle are equipped with motorcycle gear in total just minus the boots where we stick to more practical wear when driving a four wheeler.
At the moment itīs all on the desktop but the bikes are real, the 4 wheeler is real and the finances are real so we have every chance of succeding!!!
Mind my English...Iīm not!
And why the buggy?
Because NO ONE has EVER done it before in this matter with this combination of vehicles!
Ängelholm in south of Sweden to Vladivostok and back.
21532 kms true Google maps taking the Siberian highway and a mere
time of 350 hours meaning for our part...18-20 days on a return ticket?
We havenīt got a clue? Most people say it canīt be done but we are not your usual dudes, everyone of us has made several Ironbutts or some tough riding and have some background as being a hardass!
A few tours abroad in the military as a minesweeper and two weeks ago I rode 5250 kms in 8 days from home to North Cape & back, the others have similary history, Itīs all in the head!
As the ride is going off in late june this thread probably wonīt be all that updated but Iīll try to keep you informed as everything goes along.

If you take the Federal Hwy, you could do the trip on a Tourist visa. If your planning a more adventurous off-road experience, get a three month business visa. Depending on your chosen route, you could be delayed by days or even a few weeks due to Summer rain. Historically, travel in Siberia and the Far East was undertaken in Winter as roads and rivers were frozen solid and therefore passable.
