    Great read thank you.... For every big trip I take my bikes get smaller and my loads get lighter, down to a KTM 500 with soft bags...

    ^^^^ OMG - I can't believe they drove that RV across! I thought the bridge was sketchy for bikes.

    Drones sure do add a great new perspective to videos :)

    Is there nothing those Russians won’t attempt? Fearless, amazing, how much vodka used to even consider driving that unit across.

    Damn, the drone footage is awesome... Really puts the bridge into perspective as well as the vastness of the area. Getting up high and seeing the snow capped mountains and the forest.

    Walter we need some drone footage of you tearing it up over the steppes on your next trip :)

    I wondered if a small drone would help with the blind R/R crossings, fly a drone up about 800' and you should be able to see if a trains coming for several miles in ether direction...
