Route Planning "Starts"

So the revised initial route had us dropping out the Eastern European countries and heading from Hamburg direct to Murmansk which for some reason was on both Steve and David's bucket list then down to Saint Petersburg and on to Vladivostok. Around 15,000kms in 42 days or an average of 357 kms per day. Umm still maybe a bit difficult particularly later in the trip when roads were likely to be poorer. David and Steve have done 4,200kms around the South Island of New Zealand over 9 days of riding, an average of 467kms per day, but road conditions are likely to be nowhere near as good in "outback" Russia PLUS some days for sightseeing will be a must.
