Summary

The Russian Far East, that most remote of regions on this Earth, is also home to the notorious Road of Bones. Few people have travelled there, and those who do usually travel in groups on well-prepared bikes. WikiVoyage says this about the region: "The Kolma Highway is one of the most dangerous roads in the world. Independent travel there is a serious adventure, with the very real possibility of death. The area is essentially lawless, undeveloped, barely populated, and unbelievably remote. Every year, dozens of people die in the region from drowning, freezing, car accidents, starvation, tick-borne diseases, alcohol poisoning, fires, crime, wild animals - or they just disappear...."

Lawrence Bransby, award-winning author and motorcycle adventurer, in his latest journey across Russia - the whole way this time - rode the Road of Bones twice, alone, on an old DR350 that had been stored in a shed in Kyrgyzstan for two years. Two Fingers on the Jugular is the story of this three-month, 20,000-kilometer journey, told in the intimate style that has characterized all his previous adventure travel books.  

"I am tempted at times to call Bransby's descriptive prose simply beautiful...." (Paddy Tyson, editor, Overland Magazine)

Epic

A journey through an extraordinary landscape and encounters with extraordinary people. Lawrence Brandsby must have wondered why he was doing this many times, but in the end it becomes clear that it was worth it
