I've just lost interest in the bikes (for a while). This is all Rods fault for bringing up the subject of Euro Pop.
Come on Walter, time for a proper update.

I noticed since The Beamster has joined in, the girly photos have almost come to a dead stop, whats up with that ? :eek1
trust the Russians to bring them back together
I am saving the really drunk pics for the following night's story ... when we did some proper drinking !!
This first night was just a warm up
Oh dear. Everyone, hide behind the sofa 'til it passes ...either that or book some post traumatic stress counselling
I can hardly wait!
I rode a portion of the TransAm Trail on my '99 DR350SE. I had the MT-21s on front & rear. I thought they were great on all surfaces (dirt, gravel & pavement) and in all conditions (wet & dry).
This report just keeps getting better and better, thanks Guys and Gal.
...........on the edge of our seats with anticipation!!!
Amazing RR. It's always the adversity that makes a trip memorable. Thanks for sharing your experiences!
Hahahaha ooooh boy Laughing my F***ing ass off... still here and enjoying the show! From the mud, to the bike whoa's, to the Russian lodge and drinking, to the ol' school rasberries.... All goooooood.
Here's Yana and friend in front of the cabin that all the food was prepped in. You can just see the top of the banya behind the cabin

They also had a kind of labourer ( I'll call him Igor) who was always helping out and when we took the bikes down to this lake on their land to wash off the mud Igor seemed embarrassed that we were doing this work ourselves, so he hung around and passed us tools etc to contribute

Wathching that little movie an old question pop-up again in my head:
How about none of you guys are using steering dampers on your bikes?
Nice report. Keep it coming.
You dont really need it on the BMWs ... they are built stable. More effort to turn it on single track, wut we werent riding much single track. Its all gravel roads and double track - so stability is useful on this trail.
KTM 690 I think definitely needs one. Why they didnt put less offset on it I dont know - its too big to be as unstable as it is ... IMHO. They turn almost as quickly as my Husaberg.
That can't have been me...and if it was she's slowed it down 'cos I wuz going much faster .....and I ride much more stylishly than that ...and the voices made me do it.
Shit....Rumbled for the true wanker I am
Prepare for a storm of protest from 690 riders W.
I can only say I've never felt it was unstable or anything like as twitchy as my old 625...now that WAS a quick steerer. The 690 feels road-stable on the dirt-the locks not anything as good as the old girl though. I can only tell it as I've found it.
I'd've let you have a go on mine if it'd run for more than 5 minutes .
Ohhh - I give points on style for that maneuver...done a few myself. It's impressive your actually still in the game at this point.
I mounted one after this trip....Not that I needed one but now it does feel more stable at high speeds.
Yanas partner in crime, Zenya !
