    Has anyone any plans to ride the sibirsky extreme trail ? I had hoped to do a big trip in 2014 but it looks like I might not be ready in time so I have been thinking of doing this trail in 2015 . I have done plenty of solo offroad miles ( Siberia , Andes mountains, SE asia ,Amazon ) but for this trip I though some company would be good. So if the is anyone with plans to ride this or even just some of it please let me know

    Hi Kito,
    my idea is to use a KTM 690, BMW G650XC, XT660Z or 660R and rebuilt them as ADV-Bike, just like Walter did.
    My XT1200Z is way to heavy to do the ride.

    I`ve made a first timetable and will translate it and post it this week here just for information and brainstorming:D

    So it sounds like we are in the same position ready to start building a new bike.
    I have a XR 400 at the moment for doing the lanes but not realy what I want to ride 12,000 miles on. I realy like the ktm 690 but for me i question its reliability. I used to have a x challenge and am thinking of maybe getting another one.

    No firm plans but I am interested in doing the complete route in 2015. I have an adventure prepped XR650R ready to go now.

    Kito,
    i think its just what i want to do in 2015. As i wrote, the Timetable was the first Idea for the Trip and was a compromise between my Friend and me. Since this week it seemed, as if he could not go along this Trip...
    And a plan can be changed, at least i got 14 weeks to go to Magadan and back home:D

    I have ridden along the trans Siberian last year from Kazan to Ulan Ude on a Honda CB400, and short of two sections which were twisty and exciting, and some off-road excursions, it was very boring, very hot, and very straight. :deal

    Please read this thread/ ride report to see if you think this is the kind of trip you would like to make as its a very hard ride and not for everyone . 3 months offroad will be hard on the mind ,body and bike

    I know the report. I have read just about every page twice. I know i am unable to do all that route. Having been a pencil-pusher for the better part of my life, my physical condition can hardly be called top-notch. That's why I want to limit myself to only a part of the route during one month. Then take a one month break, followed by a second part, returning home, over another one month period. I wil be glad if i make to Ulaan-bataar in a month.

    Don't put yourself down mate. The is 16 months to get fit. It only takes 48 hours for muscle tissue to rebuild. After 1 month you will just be starting to get bike fit. If you then go home for one month all fitness gained will be lost in that time

    Privet!

    I'm planning to do the trail as well, doesn't matter if staying 100% true to the route or not though.
    Mostly looking forward to nice trail/track/offroad riding without too many obstacles (unlike here in sweden).

    Riding a 690R, and would like to stay on suitable tracks (i.e. no wrestling in mud holes for days on end :) )

    Started pondering a bit on how to get back home (riding both ways takes too much time), maybe possible to put myself and bike on train to moscow? Have to do more research :)

    I feel that it might be best to stick to the trail as best as possible . Staying with it would seem better than having to backtrack to find were we are upto plus Walter has taken a lot of time and effort into making the best route that he could. As Walter has been to most of these places many times and is well experienced in this area I don't see how it would be possible to make it into a better ride .... But if Walter or others that have riden the trail have some other recommendation I'm all :ear
    Happy xmas all ADVers
