Harleych, next time I am over there, we need to go visit Kristof!
This past summer was not a good time for an American to be down that way, may be in a year or two it will!
Yes, I am serious, and I will learn some Russian, I promise! And I still have 11,000 Rubles in my wallet...

These roads remind me of the Trans Siber Highway.

There are many kilometers of the Trans-Sib that are a lot worse than "Kristof Road 1".

Still, I'd go back again if I can convince SHMBO Renata....

YMMV

Simply outstanding trip reports & photos.

But please, more pictures of those gorgeous Russian Ladies, :D

I would love to ship my Gear Up to Russia and ride through out the country with you. You are a very lucky man.

Russia really is a wonderful, interesting and really friendly place. Really, just don't pi$$ them off (kinda like the rest of us). When things calm down Kritof's way (calm for Russians now, but not for a person with a US passport. Not yet anyway.) gotta get down there. Maybe I can talk Harleych into a little ride south from St Petersburg next year.
