Dirt roads and mountains, that's living right!
Right life may be cruel for some wrong motorcycles
I woke up at the beautiful place. Flowers, wooden houses, horses.
This mountain caught my attention. It would be nice to wind up on the top.
No sooner said than done. It's not very high. I'll take it easy.
Go ahead, do it!
First respite. It's not so easy!
I'm not alone here. Some goats are climbing too.
The time to sit and breath.
The top! It was worth it!
I saw a path leading down. OK, this way is easier.
And now the Siberian stonepark begins its work. Gee!
To the river now.
What a bliss to plunge into this clear water!
Guys wants to know everything about the motorcycle. They can't believe I came from Moscow. Yeah, the capital isn't so far as it seems.
Then I headed for a viewing point of Belukha mountain.
Belukha, high and far
This is the end point of travel. I bought Mohito to feel it right. Warm Siberia had presented me an excellent week.
I began my way home.
Oh, this road!
But landscapes are magnificient
Drag race against a traktor. I won
Cows are true owners of these roads.
Simple food. It's so tasty when you're really hungry
Pleasant communication with cheerful girls.
My overnight place. Small room in this house for 10 USD. Interesting conversation as a bonus. Love this. Don't like expensive and soulless hotels.
You seriously need a dual sport bike. That is a veritable play ground for a dual sport.
Dual sport would be very suitable on this road. But it can't give 1000+ km a day on highway.
Farewell look at the river.
And race from one gas station to another.
I have to stop, it's beautful.
Fast sightseeing of the city.
This guy from Moscow rented a flat in Novosibirsk and rode around
So we can fly together.
Skies are mysterious.
I've found good place to sleep. Standart motel near the road but with 2 motorcycles in front of it. Interesting communication, some way stories. Different bikes but one yearning to heed the call of adventure.
Sunset says Good night
Dreams will be pleasant
Thank you, very nice pictures.
I really liked this thread.
Where to next..?
I was met by the right machine near the motel. For bike and rider!
Whirpool of colors
Today I would continue with Siberian cities. The first is Omsk.
Real life of poor people. Flea market.
"Gas station to gas station" mode activated
The soul of Siberia
I met this bike at the next gas station. Russian inscription on the side fairing of the motorcycle "God loves you".
His name is Kim. He's from South Korea. And he travels from Vladivostok to Amsterdam. Good luck, Kim!
This boy looks to have found a common language with my bike
Chelyabinsk is my second city for a fast sightseeing today
Ural was ready to take me into its arms
And I rode until the night cold made me stop.
What an awesome trip report. Some amazing photos. Russia looks stunning.
I would love to see some side by side pictures of those Siberian cities in the winter. I suspect it is vastly different. Very hardy people that live where it is so cold.
This is one of the stereotypes, Siberia - extremely cold. Siberia is so large that it's very different in different parts. I've explored only South-West region and it has relatively soft climate. Locals says this summer isn't very hot.
The average annual temperature is about 4 degrees lower than in Moscow, 5 degrees higher than average in Alaska.
Although you probably think that Moscow has severe climate, we've got used to .
Northern and Eastern Siberia are REALLY tough. Norilsk, Yakutsk have average temperatures 7 degrees lower than average Alaskian. The same as in the northernmost town of Alaska Barrow. And A LOT of snow. Like this
Fresh morning air
And boundless fields
I had see tire cord on my rear wheel so I needed to find new tire in Samara. Phone calls by internet advertisement gave no result. Only in 2 days.
I thought that to do and while feeded birds together with this grandfa.
OK. I'll try to find some motorcyclist and ask about tires. I was looking around at the same time.
I got a target in my sights, V-max. I overtook him and shouted for him to stop. Fortunately this guy knows everything about motorlife in his city. He gave me a phone number of great motorcycle shop with tire service.
15 minute work.
And I was ready to fly again.
Fast sightseeing of the city.
Interesting conversation with grandma near the church. About life, songs, culture and history.
Goodbye Samara, it was pleasant!
Excellent weather, good mood and beautiful landscapes. What more could I want?
About 500 km to Moscow and I decided to get another road sunset.
Last night of this trip. I couldn't believe my memories was real
Excellent trip report and pictures! I weep at the similarities of out two countries and the wasted years of fear and hate of the "cold war." Thank our governments for that! Without this dynamic forum I would have never known that even parts of Siberia could be warm! Or that motorcyclists the world over are pretty much the same....insane! Har, har! Thank you!
Good roads with rural landscapes.
Last coffee break before Moscow
I entered Ryazan, fast sightseeing.
Pleasant ending of excellent trip. I was full of energy and joy.
Moscow surprised me with traffic jams and crazy drivers. No, dear ones, you can't upset me. Siberia is in my heart
Make sure you post your next trip!
I would love to see your bike garage/workshop/shed/man cave too.
How we all ride and live around the world so different, but so much the same, always amazes me.
We are all human
You can see a lot of interesting casual things in this thread:
Well done, oh Mad Russian! No injuries on this trip, always a bonus. Thanks for taking us along, very much enjoyed it.
Great RR!!! Thank you for showing me that part of the world. Great attitude. Riding 1300 + km on a single day isn't for everyone.
