Here is, quite possibly, the most Russian setup for a viral video we’ve ever seen. Unpronounceable town name? Check. Huge (and very real) brown bear? Check. Ural motorcycle with a sidecar? Check. Oddly-described “traveling circus” run by a biker club? Check.
A driver in Arkhangelsk, Russia was understandably shocked when he spotted a pair of bikers and their ursine companion—named “Tim,” according to the video description—cruising down a public road last week and pulled out his phone to record the scene. Even if Russian drivers have practically seen it all, his excited tone makes it clear this isn’t quite an everyday occurrence.
