Smile Hi from Russia

I am a proud owner of Kawasaki Versys 1000 since June 2012. Already made a trip from Moscow to Lucern (Switzerland) in 2012 and (though this year was pretty lazy one) have approx 32.000 km total

Glad to join you, guys

cheers!

Can I ask where you live in Russia? I've been reading a RR on ADV about a ride across Russia on the BAM railroad. Just wondering how far east you have traveled by motorcycle? I'm getting a slight itch to ride Russia if I live long enough.
Cheers and Welcome

I was born in Kursk (500 km to the south from Moscow), but since 2005 I live in Moscow. The east of Russia is completely new to me, as the most I managed to get to the east is like 400 km from Moscow - mostly I am making weekend trips to the 'Golden Ring' cities and such. I know the RR you're speaking about and I have read it with great pleasure. Right now I am planning a '4 points' trip (extreme points of Europe) : Northern (Nordkapp), Western (Cabo da Roca, Portigal), Southern (Tarifa, Spain) and Eastern (Ural mountains divide, near Vorkuta), but I am also thinking of making it longer to the East, maybe to Vladivostok.

Thanks a lot! I've chosen the aluminium sidebags as they have more place for all the things you carry and also offer some protection if you fall (proved that once)
