Thats a funny pic. All the locals are gathered round the bikes like a meteor just landed.
It must be priceless to see them stare in aghast when Beamster comes out and gets on
her bike.

Kazaks are generally pretty inquisitive we found when we went through there (about the same time as Walter and co did). Really nice always want to where you are from, where you are going and how much the bike was worth.

And they what the word 'extreme' means - brings back some nice memories. Can't wait to go again.

Day 41

We woke up at our crummy lakeside hotel. Decided breakfast would be better 15 km down the road at the main town of Bayanaul and headed up over the pass that separated this lush, alpine environment, from the hot baking dry Kazakh steppe.

Day 41 Breakfast

As Prutser's pics showed ... there was quite a crowed just standing and staring at the bikes parked in front of the cafe:



Beamster kept a watchful eye on the crowd as she munched away on a cheburek:

Hello Rod :-)

I see from your text, and from your pictures, that you fancy small soft panniers when you travel. Light is good when it comes to off road.

I see though that you have a ton of stuff strapped outside your bags. Doesn't that defy the whole purpose of having small panniers? I tried the same on my Kola trip and you can still follow my trail from all the items I lost

When I was a Boy Scout I was tought to always leave a trail for me to follow back if I needed to. Were you a Boy Scout too

Day 41 (28th June) ... Back to the steppe

After refuelling and getting some oil into Rod's fuel tank, we headed out of Bayanaul, ESE on a gravel road for about 50 km (30 miles) until we reached the end of the road ... the last village.

Day 41 continued

It was steaming hot ... and as we pulled into this end of the road village, Rod's KTM began sputtering and we decided we better let it cool down and take a rest.

We huddled out of the sun under a small tin shelter and tried to cool down ourselves - which meant boots off:
