Cute Blonde rides Royal Enfield into Russia

Post by tx2sturgis » Fri Jul 12, 2019 8:22 pm

I just ran across this youtube channel: Itchy Boots.

She is quite charming and smiles her way into the hearts of all the foreigners she meets.

Lots of videos to choose from, here she is entering Russia:

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Channel is on my watch list! Was just checking the specs on the bike she's riding, and was surprised to find out it's only rated at 25hp. Amazing - we're driving monster bikes in comparison!

** Was that a "temporary" military assault bridge she was crossing?

I miss Herbert but she is amazing. I sent some money to support her travels. How can she do this? What a free spirit.

I thought this was the opening line to a joke.

Sure wish I had the time (and money) to just go explore and ride everywhere I'd like to see. I think I could vanish for months at the time. Such a shame this world is so divided too. Can't just go where you might like with all the political unrest out there.

I know huh? Clickbait is my middle name.

:wink:

Seriously, this gal has some lady-balls.

She takes that little bike over some nasty roads and sleeps in some unusual places. Not to mention crossing into countries by her self with little or no command of the local language.

Maybe I'll get to buy her a beer when she crosses into the USA and rides that Himalayan into Texas!

I enjoyed also, & sent to my friends. Now I can still get an Enfield single Fix, now that I've sold mine.

Thanks for the recommendation! It reminded me of Elena Filatova's website about her travels to Chernobyl, which I first found during the last decade...

Very spartan girl. Two thumbs up! She took me all the way to Antalia, Turkey from Kazakhstan.
When she was going from Russia to Georgia I thought she was going to end up in Atlanta... :lol:
She avoided big cities, traffic. I liked Dutch couples own place in Armenia, nice hotel building in Karabakh.

I signed up for her Email list after watching a couple of her videos - thinking it would be a nice surprise to get updates. Hope she's OK - I've yet to receive ANY adventures or updates. I didn't even call my self the INSUBORDINATOR ???

I've yet to receive ANY adventures or updates.
She finished her current trip and is back in Holland - so email and YouTube activity had slowed down. She is prepping for her next trip from Patagonia to Alaska.
