Smile Russian travellers annual meeting


Feb 15-17 near Moscow russian traveller community sets up its 6th annual meeting and celebration. everyone can present his route-2007 and try for Trophy of the Year. usually around 200 persons appear at the event, at least half of them hard-core adventurers. "the motoconference" as we call it is the best place to learn about new routs from people who really did it and get all details and hints. we welcome bikers all around the world. accomodation available.
if you take any interest in the event please contact me at motobelka @mail.ru or post here.

Greetings
I won't be there for the meeting in February; but will be in Moscow and St Petersburg around the beginning of July after traveling around Europe. Leaving Australia beginning of May.
It would be nice to meet up with some Russian bikers.
Any suggestions about best accommodation when I'm there?

Regards
Michael

Thanks mate, I'll be in touch closer to our departure date.
Prefer close to everything and cheap, but I know you can't have best of both worlds! See my blog for the route.
50` North

Have a drink on me in February . . .
Cheers
Mick

Jeez Motobelka, can't you choose a comelier time of the year??? I haven't got any spiked tyres ;-) And yes, I haven't got enough undies to keep warm

Aren't there any meetings in spring or summer?

it a meeting not a rally

anyway some guys'll come on wheels but major part appear in winter way - car for moskovites and SPb residents, train for ukrainians and belorussians. for us it's possibility to discuss plans for forthcoming riding season and give trophies for previous year. the reason i posted the announcment here is that most of you cant read russian so cant find contacts in our part of the world - only a few commercials promising asphalt ride from Msk to SPb or thru Golden Ring.
if you r interested in elephant-treffen analog take a closer look at Toghliatti Snowdogs :: Ìîòîñëåò :: Ñàìàðñêàÿ Ëóêà. it's a biggest winter ride here and four smaller ones will take place not far from Moskow. THAT could be real adventure for europeans. another useful site is MotoCalendar.RU - Êàëåíäàðü áàéêåðà all events around the year from all over ex-soviet terra are in the list. but again one shoul read russian.
the conference is the best place to meet real people and to start planning next big ride. so we do.
