Like all boys Dmitri raved about travelling from early childhood. Constantly in his dreams he went through the world in a far country. His favorite writers was Jack London, Hg wells, Fenimore Cooper, Belyaev… Thanks to my older brother Igor he early managed to master the basics on driving post-war trophy-motorcycles. Yes, Yes, exactly. In postwar times it was not possible to buy bikes in shops, since they were in short supply. But before the army Dmitry managed to acquire on their money.. a legitimate (albeit old) motorcycle MINSK.

Since 2000, here in the capital of modern and independent Kazakhstan and began the biker movement.

The borders are opened, and the dream of Dmitry became closer every day, every hour.
In 2004, he decided to start on a motorcycle around the world. It should be noted that the impetus for this start was the arrival in Kazakhstan in 2004, Evan McGregor – actor-Hollywood star ( Star wars.

Hoisting the Flag of Kazakhstan for his motorcycle, it STARTED.

It should be noted that Petrukhin’s family provided material and financial support to Dmitry , for realization of his DREAM, up to 2007.
As they say journalists and friends, the very disasters and anomalies that occurred at the place of his birth ( born in the place where the Tungus meteorite fell down) – influenced his future destiny. It is no secret that in the world of bikers no biker has ever managed to overcome all the continents and drive more than 150 countries – this is not the finish..
