cyclists from Murmansk to Vladivostok

DSC06867 resize Irkutck Nahodka

time Mitas E-09 check. Started bad road (pederalka). 700-800 km without asphalt through the taiga:)

DSC06868 resize Irkutck Nahodka

machine on the tire could not take my wheels, but I’m not disappointed, because I can do it all myself for half an hour with the installation of blades and a good mood:) but it was!! But I approached to what most thought, what was most afraid of and what is most wanted – pederalka!

DSC06869 resize Irkutck Nahodka

here it is at its best! The best kind – is when the pour and bumpers. Bears are not so easily go on the road, and this, plus some dry pants:)

to the east, suddenly disappeared on the current dashboard and the tachometer needle began to twitch. Not scared, because I know that in Africa, unforeseen situations can not be for several reasons: first – I have it myself ready for the road, the second-no minimum Computers & Electronics. And he did – unscrew minus Clem on battery from shaking.

scattered all and screw it into place, and still managed to get a tan. People – no one bears – no one, mosquito-darkness!! Long-distance car was not enough, as raised duties on imports. On one side is good – there is no dust on the road from them, but on the other side you fall, God forbid, or something, it was only a bear and find you here:)

feature of the drive on a road: We must go at least 100km / h and preferably in a rack on his feet. The risk of falling increases by an order, but less jolting.

Here is one of the few importers of cars

refueling. The pump pumps from diesel generators. Therefore, gasoline is very expensive. For comparison: in Samara, 20 rubles per 1 liter, and is 30 rubles.

and then a miracle happened. At the meeting I was going the same crazy-loner San Jung from Seoul. That was a meeting !!!!!!!!! All the details are in the book. It was a super party in the taiga!!

DSC06883 resize Irkutck Nahodka

Moscow guys met in the cruisers. Yes, I do not envy them at the time. Speed 30 km / h but also on such bikes are a danger to break the frame and wheels, that the guys with the success they did. I met with them later in Vladivostok, they told me about road … Back by plane!
