Thanks for the kind words gents. Much appreciated.
Gazz: It was a solo trip, not an organised tour. It was even postively disorganised considering my usual Teutonic efficiency. I tagged along with a group of Dutchmen and a couple of Brits to share their container to Kazakhstan. I teamed up with people here and there for a day or 2 and rode 9 days from the western border of Mongolia to Ulaan Baatar, its capital, with a German chap, also on a Transalp.
FWIW, this summer's brand of choice for the Stans and Mongolia was Honda. My counting of Africa Twins went well into double figures and combined with a couple of Trannies like mine, Honda won the day easily. European brands and other Japs were down in the cheap seats.
