This is the real deal. Five women, all friends, all French, decide to cross the Himalayas by motorcycle. They arrive in India, get on their Royal Enfields, and then things get tough: crazy traffic, altitude sickness, rockslides, military checkpoints, and fatigue. The people are friendly though and the landscapes are gorgeous. You really have to admire these women’s grit.

The video is in three episodes. Find episodes two and three after the jump.

OK, this one is epic. Twenty-four Russian motorcyclists ride a 14-day, 4,000 km loop through the Ural Mountains. 1,400 kms of the trip are off-road. Half the time there aren’t any roads at all. And the other half, they’re nothing but mud holes. Lots of river crossings, lots of open country. Lots of crashes, lots of teamwork. It looks like it was quite an adventure. Cue Russian folk music!
