As a keen adventure motorcyclist, I wish to ride around the world. Since 2010 I have traveled through 49 countries on my motorbike, some alone, some with my wife or son, a friend or two and some in groups. There have also been a variety of road surfaces, and some trips were luxurious and others we camped and roughed it.
It has always been my desire to travel through Russia, and specifically to see Siberia. In the process of researching how to go about doing it, not understanding the language and other logistical challenges, I read about Rusmototravel and contacted Alex Nikonov.
A small group of 5 motorcyclist, including Alex and Tim Karpov from Rusmototravel, rode from Moscow to Vladivostok from 21 July to 13 August 2017. The trip was really excellent and very educational. Alex and Tim went out of their way to take us to interesting places where tourists would not normally have access to. We were invited to private homes where we were spoilt with typical Russian food dishes and drinks. Throughout the journey Alex and Tim informed us of local customs, historical facts and Russian opinions. The itinerary and riding distances were carefully and well planned. The accommodation was very good. I would recommend anyone wanting to travel in and experience Russia to book their trip through Rusmototravel
