    This is without doubt one of the best RR's on ADVrider.
    I have really enjoyed following the story and it has sharpened my appetite to explore the former USSR.

    And after making it through this absolutely massive one month of your trek I want to hear the rest. It may take me a little while, but I will own this epic story.


    Well, Titanium Tony comes to mind! I even if I have to stand everyone for a pint of two, I can only imagine the stories get better! :freaky

    I am late but just finished this read----and find that the book is still available on Amazon (and other places) but in paperback only? I would have liked to had a copy in hardback? Wondering if anyone knows where a hardback copy can be had?

    I've only seen it available in a soft cover edition and I don't believe it was available as a hardcover.

    BTW .... in Scotland BAM is an old slang word for a mad or crazy person :D Somehow that seems kind of appropriate :D:D:D
