These are seriously hospitable people -and do they like a party.
They have a saying - "chu-chuch" which is like "poco a poco" or " Just a little one" so when they brought out the vodka I declined (T and W didn't) and Yan and her pal said..." chu-chuch?" . I weakened ... Vodka improves with repeated tastings so the dancing alas got even worse, we looked like our legs had become boneless.
I am saving the really drunk pics for the following night's story ... when we did some proper drinking !!

This first night was just a warm up

I rode a portion of the TransAm Trail on my '99 DR350SE. I had the MT-21s on front & rear. I thought they were great on all surfaces (dirt, gravel & pavement) and in all conditions (wet & dry).

Yana and friend

Here's Yana and friend in front of the cabin that all the food was prepped in. You can just see the top of the banya behind the cabin

They also had a kind of labourer ( I'll call him Igor) who was always helping out and when we took the bikes down to this lake on their land to wash off the mud Igor seemed embarrassed that we were doing this work ourselves, so he hung around and passed us tools etc to contribute

Wathching that little movie an old question pop-up again in my head:

How about none of you guys are using steering dampers on your bikes?

Nice report. Keep it coming.

You dont really need it on the BMWs ... they are built stable. More effort to turn it on single track, wut we werent riding much single track. Its all gravel roads and double track - so stability is useful on this trail.

KTM 690 I think definitely needs one. Why they didnt put less offset on it I dont know - its too big to be as unstable as it is ... IMHO. They turn almost as quickly as my Husaberg.
