Hi Heres a ride report from a bike trip I did in the summer of 2013: It involves off-pavement riding from Ulaan Bataar, the Capital of Mongolia across eastern Siberia in Russia via Irkutsk, Lake Baikal, the western section of the BAM Road, Tynda, Yakutsk and the Road of Bones to Magadan. The journey started on a 1988 Honda XL600V Transalp (The Shed) and finished on a 2008 BMW G650 X-Challenge (The RBA). There were lots of adventures: Either because they would have happened on any bike, or special bonuses based on my unsuitable bike selection. I met lots of great local people and had some super riding buddies. They were, in chronological order: Mr Pete-the great dancer-Berry Mr Bod Waters Mr Andrew Don Mr Jon Boulton (AD and JBs website is www.jabamundus.com ) Mr Adam Lewis ( http://shortwayround.co.uk/ ) And last, but by no means least, Mr Felix -Mullets are back in fashion- Wright Most of the images are mine, but some belong to the boys. I have asserted their copyright as appropriate. Thanks for letting me use them. There are also a few videos. Theyre not really edited with love, but they hopefully help to tell the story of one hell of a trip. Id also like to thank Mr Walter Colebatch (http://www.sibirskyextreme.com/ ) for his advice and navigation aids (Next time Ill follow the advice more closely ) and Mr Phil Kneller for allowing me to complete the trip on his bike while he spent more with the beautiful and charming Zarina. Here are some pictures to give you a feel for what I encountered.
