    • Dude…are you kidding me?
      99% of Siberia is like this. I’ve seen much more beautiful settings. Tourists never see it in Moscow or St. Petersburg.

      • I suppose you’re right. You see all i’ve seen of russia was just St Petersburg and the very centre of Moscow, so obviously I was not able to see all this lush countryside.

        Hopefully next time I go I will try to venture out a little bit further, maybe even Siberia. What parts of Siberia do you suggest I visit?

        • none, you don’t want to go roaming around a place where you won’t find a human being within 100 miles. if you wanna go see nature and stuff go to Karelia

  1. I’d like to know where these photos were taken. I see forest in one photo, and maybe part of a steppe (?) in another. I like it, wherever it is.

    • They are quite cheap. A used BMW R-boxer from the ’70’s can be bought for aprox. 2000 euro’s. A Dnjepr/Ural is considered less trustworthy [rightfully so] and cheaper. BMW parts can be used to maintain it. And it needs a lot of maintenance, being constructed of second rate materials and with outdated technology. Don’t expect BMW quality !

      Ever thought of the Chinese BMW-clone Chiang Jiang ? Looks better than the Ural and is based on the same BMW..

      Here’s a link to a [french] website with pictures of many BMW clones, incl. Dnepr and Chiang Jiang.

  2. 50 years ago, much of the U.S. was pretty much the same. Before the highways and other advancments, like garbage dumps, farmers would dump there refuse in the river, that’s just how it was. They didn’t know any better. The use of DDT was encouraged, my grandfather died of cancer related to it. There were dramatic declines in populations of species such as the bald eagle. Now that we don’t dump in the river and spray DDT on everything, our eagle populations have rebounded and they’re thriving, at least in the NW U.S..

    • True but you still cannot eat the fish out of the Duwamish river in Seattle and the orcas have toxins in their fatty tissue. This tractor is minor, go to the Appalachians in the east. They are a pit of death due to coal mining.

  3. Obviously this either fell through the ice in spring, or broke down on the ice in winter and was not retrieved before the thaw.

    The whole world is polluted. I was in the middle of nowhere in New Hampshire or Maine, in the national forest, miles and miles from any road or trail, and found beer cans and trash lying around in the woods. Every major river in the world is polluted, Lake Michigan was so polluted at one point that satellites photographing the earth read parts of the lake as “land.” Even lake Baikal in Siberia has toxins.

    *sigh* we get what we deserve.
