    This is a video report from our annual May trip.
    This spring off-road people did south Ural.
    14 Days,
    24 People participated, using every bike possible. We had 2T 250 and Baja's as well as KTM950, BMW HP2 and even Aprillia 1000 CapoNord.
    4000 Km from Mosow to South Ural and back to Moscow.
    1400 Km of this trip was off-road.

    Grom, looks like a mud-fest. Brilliant! :clap

    Unfortunatley, we do not have much real "off road" here in the U.S.; it's almost all on trails or fire roads, or similar. I love the challenge of finding a way through the forest (or desert) with no road at all.

    Water looks pretty cold.

    Oh, by the way, I love the Becherovka too. I can even buy it here in Colorado.

    Thanks for sharing the video. :clap:clap:clap

    Wow! That is amazing. The most important thing to have brought was patience and a since of humor!

    The riding looks great. How hard do think it would be for foreigners to ride in the Urals.
