    Siberian Extreme

    Ok boys and girls. I have sold up the big 1200 GSA and am preparing to take off from the Touratech open day with Jonathon Fox, at the end of March, heading into the wilds of Siberia on an X-Challenge

    I am going to try and get the little beast further North and East into Asia than has been done before. Fingers crossed!

    Planning to hook up with a number of guys en route, including Mac Swinarski from Motosyberia.com - who is trying again to get to Kamchatka or Chukhotka by bike, and Chris Scott who I will also hook up with in Siberia for the ride down thru Mongolia and China.

    Lots more info on the website ... www.SibirskyExtreme.com

    Will posts updates on this post as they come along, or on the blog on the website above.

    As Walter pointed out I'll be joining him from Touratech on down through Western Europe and then down through the Balkans before heading North and East again across Romania, Moldova and the Ukraine. because I am a mere mortal I have to return from this point but will be bagging as many countries as I can upon my return.

    I look forward to seeing you all at the TT event and if any northern tossers want to join me on the ride down to Touratech give me a shout.

    Safe riding
    We should learn from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism. [/I]

    Great stuff Walter, maybe our paths will cross although you're leaving around 6 weeks ahead of us.

    Thanks a lot Tim ... I guess I am just budgeting on being a slower rider on my little X-Challenge Will take me more weeks to get out there.

    Hope to catch you at the Touratech open day.


    By the way, have heard that there will be a few trips leaving from Touratech ... Globebusters' Kevin and Julia are leading off a trip on the Saturday 28th March ... also headed for Mongolia among other places.

    I am planning on leaving also from Touratech on the Sunday 29th March ... the following day.

    It will be a good meet as far as big trips goes :-)

    Ha, I doubt that...plus our time getting lost, overfilling fuel tanks, not finding any food, a few years in prison etc. etc.

    Hey Jon,

    I like the recent version better. More realistic



    Please keep an eye on Walter on the way, if you please. He isn't getting any younger
