Guys, you gotta see this video: it's purely AWESOME!



P.S. Woops! Looks like I accidentally created this topic in the wrong section. I can't delete it, so, deer admin, please move this topic to the "Crosstourer - General Discussion". Thanks.

I agree it's a bit long, and in Russian!

However, I did skim through it and some of those roads, if you want to call then roads, are pretty awesome.

I watched it all, I admire their fortitude riding big bikes in those conditions, I was waiting for the BMW to break down! CT coped with it all, better than I would have expected. :047:

Too bad: you're missing a lot.

That's not the point. You're not looking this video to read the texts - you're looking this video for some good footage AND good music.

And it did. GSs rear shock failed only 1k km after the beginning of really bad roads. So the guys stopped in Yakutsk, called to the BMW office in Moscow, and asked them to send a replacement shock ASAP from Moscow to Yakutsk with a plane. And they did! So 3 days later guys received the shock in Yakutsk, replaced it (by themselves, of course), and continued the journey. BTW, Moscow BMW office had NOT had any spare shocks - so they took it off from the new bike.

Well, maybe you're right. You gotta be Russian to like this music. I liked it a lot. I believe this music goes well with this video: they ride fast and music is also fast. AND they ride across the Russia - and part of the music is also Russian: some of them are old Russian classics, and some are modern Techno-remixes of the old Russian classics.
