This is insanely long, but has fantastic footage and fun music. Some time when you're just chilling with nothing to do, light this one up and enjoy Burnout


...and yes, I'd love to do this  Bigok

Awesome vid!

Can't believe they didn't all run into each other - such a huge group!   Crazy

My favorite part is duct taping a snorkel onto the HP2.   Lol

Some observations-
The ultimate bike would be waterproof and have lots of handles.
I couldn't pick up my bike (and others) that many times. Crazy
Looks cold and wet.
It takes a great group of people to pull this off. Bigok
I'd be worried about getting hurt or terminal damage to a bike that far from civilization.
I'm too old and brittle. 20 years ago this would have really appealed to me.
Great vid! Thanks for sharing!! Thumbsup

Everything we were told about Russia for the last forty years is so wrong.  It is freer now than the west and the Russian people are just great!!

At 3:56 the caption could be:  Has anyone seen Ivan?  He was driving the van...

From my limited two-wheeled off-road experience and fairly extensive four-wheeled off-road background, I think most of their get-offs could have been avoided if they's simply slowed down a little.
