    I agree, ranks up there with Walter Coalbatch Russian - Siberia thread. I remember reading this report years ago and I still remember many bits.
    5 Stars!

    So this seems to be a good time to dive back into this RR.

    All of the original bike riders from the 2009 expedition were invited to join the 10th anniversary reunion by Sam last year. The 2019 trip would follow the 2009 trail backwards.

    After initially thinking I was up for it ,over the course of several months and reflecting on the past expedition I decided not to join. The majority of other guys independently did the same. I think we all decided that we had already "been there done that". One time was more than enough. Only Sofan joined up again but then he's a nutter, who practically lives off his bike full time off road nowadays.

    The thought of possibly having to tackle this again was definitely a factor in my decision :lol3

    This was probably the greatest ride report I've ever read. Great that they are still doing it after 10 years.

    Gotta keep this up on page one so more of us discover it. Amazing (obviously). Reading it consumed my week.
