I hate to ask what you did with the used oil.

I am out front of a scooter shop where I bought the oil. Alexi loaned me that big glass juice jar that I filled up. He then carried the jar over to his trash pit and dropped it in. He also kept the used filter and Im sure he will clean it up as a spare for sale when another crazy American rides past his shop on an F800.
The litter across Russia is staggering. It is everywhere in huge amounts. The only thing worse are the public pit toilets that are often full to overflowing. So people will just shit on the floor instead

Well, the crude oil that became the engine oil came out of the soil. I am pretty sure it can go back in when dirty

Just finished putting some new tire on the bike. A set of stock tires from an inmate. Hoping the Mitas make it here soon so I can get a set of them to try!

After carrying the OEM Scorpians across Siberia

I had them reinstalled in Poland for the paved section of my ride.

The Scouts I used were fantastic and will be me tire of choice when I get back home. 7200 miles and the rear was 1/16" from the wear bar. The front had loads of miles left but had picked up a bad head shake.

At Bialystok BMW, They even washed my bike!
