    Hi vasar,
    This looks like a fantastic trip and RR from the start. Looking forward to reading more..your riding solo on a trip like this adds a totally different perspective to the ADVenture, surely a braver and potentially more challenging trip than with a group. Btw, Walter used to be a Transalp rider..

    Most of the roads are very good (especially for transalp),

    but, between Jaroslav and Kirov, roads are porn, totally broken asphalt.

    The Ob River (Russian: Обь), also Obi, is a major river in western Siberia and is the world's seventh longest river. It is the westernmost of the three great Siberianrivers that flow into the Arctic Ocean (the other two being the Yenisei River and the Lena River). The Gulf of Ob is the world's longest estuary.

    Really enjoying this thread and the lack of clutter regarding equipment choices, technique, etc. One man on a long road with his bike and camera. Works for me:freaky
