A couple of English and foreign politicians and nobility have launched a great initiative. They are planning to ride BMW R1150GS-Adventurer motorcycles 6000 miles through Russia, from Vladivostok to St. Petersburg in order to raise money for Russian charities.

The high profile group consists of:
White Knights Ride motorcycle training
  • Lord Nicholas Fairfax (organizer, former member of House of Lords),
  • HRH Prince Michael of Kent
  • Rose Cecil (professional artist ),
  • Prince Nicholas von Preussen (grandson of Kaizer Wilhelm of Germany),
  • Tim von Halle (investment banker),
  • Victor Emery (business man, former Worldchampion bobsleigh),
  • Boris Zimin (businessman),
  • Ron Pape (businessman),
  • Kevin Saunders (Adventure rider, holder of 2 Guinessbook world records),
  • Vernon Stratton (businessman, former Worldchampion sailing).

















In the photo you can see HRH Prince Michael of Kent standing with several of the riders (4th on the left is Simon Pavey, head instructor of BMW's off-road course).

Great to see that it's not just stars or "mad" people going for long distance motorcycle adventurer rides, but highly respected politicians and royalty!!
