It is every adventure motorcyclists dream to ride the Bam Road in the far East of Russia but only a few dare to try each year. We we’re fortunate to be able to team up with 5 other motorcyiclsts to try our luck at completing this 1380km epic journey on a gravel road which has not be maintained since 1996.
It took us 6 days to complete it, riding 12 hours each day and have only just arrive to the end (a town called Tynda). As we are both too exhausted to compile a video of this adventure just yet, we have instead provided a little taster of us crossing the Vitim Bridge two up.
To the best of our knowledge and from what we’ve been told, we are the first couple (two up on the twin cylinder motorcycle) to ever complete the BAM road.
We hope to get the full video up sometime soon.
