Just like here, the Government is the enemy !!!!!!!!!!!
Just as one more data point, RTWDoug and I were able to ship our bikes to Vladi on the deck of a boat in the summer of 2011, the alternative was to crate it, which we did not want to mess with. It seems like there is a fair bit of flex about what is allowed, and it depends to a large extent on the whims of the ship's captain. We were kind of lucky timing-wise in that we arrived in Magadan in the afternoon, went sniffing around for a boat in the morning, and the bikes were loaded a few hours later.
Nope, it's a fake Colt Python, the brass plug on the bottom of the grip leads me to believe it is a port to fill the butane, I think it's a lighter.
If you took the regular road (not the summer road) back to Irkuskt, could a bike be shipped back to EU by rail?
You guys are all legends!
Here are some rough edited clips which can be a temporary preview untill I have time to put together a proper video. Sorry for not texting the Norwegian part of it, but I will do that in a later version. So untill I have a final version - this one is password protected, but it is a preview for you inmates here at Advrider!

Steve, not quite a first class ride home for your trusty 800GS, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Hugely well done for taking that bike where you did, right next to those other more purpose-built machines.
Thank you Steve for this great Vid
hope it will be dryer next year
Thanks for sharing a wonderful ride that most of us can only dream of
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.
Dude excellent video! The river crossings got smooth really nice!
Steve, thanks a lot for the great video!
And also to everyone else who participated in this RR, thank you very much for all the efford you took in taking us readers alongwell done!
Great vid. Steve,.
Looks like i missed all the fun.
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
What an adventure. Nice video thanks a million for sharing!
What a trip, excellent pics and excellent videos.
Thanks for sharing.
A truly epic adventure.
Thanks to everyone for putting this ride report together.
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!
