I guess you mean Yakutsk. Walter and Terry shipped their bikes to Moscow by truck. Not that expensive.

Soon there should be an option to ship by train also from Yakutsk. They are working on a connection between Tynda and Yakutsk as we speak

That video is exceptional! Holy Shite! The whole thing looks like crazy fun. After all the river crossings you guys needed gills and fish scales to keep dry.

If a picture is worth a 1,000 words, well then a 15 minute video is worth............ ah, that's too much math for me. That was absolutely exceptional. The teamwork and pure enjoyment you got from overcoming each and every obstacle and challenge is evident. The Viking spirit of discovery, documented. Thank you

Thanks C-Stain. Do you speak Norwegian as well? Our achievments were totally a team effort and neither of us could have done this trip solo. Especially big greetings to Walter and Terry for letting us come along. And especially to Walter for inspiring and sharing this with all of us. If it was not for Walter most of us would never heard of the BAM road and these great places in Russia! The best part is that he just shares all his knownledge, tech details, waypoints, routes and everything with all of us here. That is amazing and should really be applauded - We had an easier job following Walters tracks!

Everything has been said already....

... but not yet from everyone ;-)

So let me add a big THANK YOU to all of you for taking the time and sharing your adventures with the rest of us. I'm sure Siberia will see quite a bit more traffic in the future because of you. In fact, I'm wondering how long it will take for a Siberian version of the Stella Alpina to pop up, like a meeting at the Vitim bridge every 1st of August or something like this.... ;-)

Special thanks to Steve for the superb video, you are an artist !

Wow!

Thanks to all involved, what an incredible ride report. Had thought about the BAM, ROB, Russia before, but no must add to the list of things i have to do in my lifetime.


There should be an EPIC Ride Reports section of the forum. This one gets my vote for #1 spot.

Jeff
