Video: Extreme Russian river crossing

Is that a Ural or a speedboat?

WE'VE seen some ballsy riding in our time but these Russians crossing a raging river on a pair of Ural outfits deserve serious respect.

At one stage the water completely submerges the bikes but the undaunted riders keep the throttle pinned and somehow navigate safely to the bank.

Never mind the helmets, these guys need life jackets!
