I never fail to appreciate the absence of humans in between towns; on the other hand, every single Siberian settlement is like a receptacle of everything that makes us long the human spirit, in its most concentrated form: warmth, compassion, altruism. One drop of this magic and my energy is restored.



Thank you.

Looking forward to reading more of your adventures. Whether on motor or push bike it does not matter. Excellent narrative and photos. Enjoying every bit of your posts.

Drum Bun!

PS... Looking forward to read details on the 690 and your plans for it.

Following your web page and the continuation of your journey....still on two-wheels. (ha - just thought if Baptiste shows up again he could ride his unicycle.)

We have one more micro adventure to go before I ll be back in my garage. Will surely post a detailed report of the 690 rejuvenation. Still in the process if sorting out parts and loads to fabricate. The DRZ will undergo some cosmetic pampering as well. I have itchy hands :))

There's a dude who unicycled around the Black Sea at some point. Can't imagine one can carry enough luggage and supplies tho' :))

Would love to hear your thoughts on moto vs bicycle travelling - I imagine it's quite region specific - crossing vast deserted areas on a bicycle must be quite a chore. I love push-bikes, having lived in Copenhagen for a long time and relied on them exclusively for transportation, but have never travelled on them. The impression one gets is that although bicycles immerse you even further in your surroundings and bring you even closer to the people along the way, the motorcycle has a broader range of application, trading some of the immersion factor for greater freedom/control - you can choose to cover vast distances quickly, and get out of somewhere you don't want to be in a hurry. Thoughts?

Well done, and then some !

Fantastic writing, photos and excellent job on the BAM solo.

The water levels were MUCH lower when you rode it just a few weeks after Kim, Noah and I. As you say, the weather makes the challenges different, not necessarily easier.
