www.ADVrider.com is very much the home of pictorial adventure riding blogs and stories and this winter there has been a plethora of great blogs on ADVrider related to off-the-beaten-track real moto adventuring in Mongolia and Siberia, all from great rides by guys in 2013.
For riders thinking of their own trips, don’t just take my word on how to pack, what to ride, and what kind of real world adventures you can have out there, see what other people are doing too.
And for riders who just love seeing stories and pictures from riding adventures in Siberia and Mongolia (I am absolutely one of those myself) ….
The Sibirsky Extreme officially endorsed winter 2013-2014 approved Adventure Motorcycling reading list (not comprehensive and in no order of awesomeness):
1) American Noah Horak on a KTM 690. This link joins his RTW ride at the Caspian Sea ferry and goes on to cover his adventures in Central Asia, Altai, Mongolia and Siberia, including the Western BAM: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=781893&page=102
2) Bob and his bunch of crazy Romanians on KTM 990s doing Mongolia and Tuva: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=902393
3) British rider Wesley on his first ever adventure on a DRZ 400. Wesley learned to ride just before he set off, so for novice riders his experiences will be particularly valuable. Seeking adventure he went through Chechnya and Dagestan on his way to Central Asia. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=934709
4) Belgian couple Seb and Kim on a pair of DRZ 400s, go thru Ukraine, Kazakhstan, the Altai, Mongolia, and back to the Stans, and do a great job of picking great, remote, out of the way tracks along the way. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=932067
