Yukky

Half way through the ride we stopped just past Kalkan at one of these,



where the temperature inside was on the high side, captured by Dirk.



One of the owners had one of these,



which I thought was quite aptly named.



I tried to hide my true feelings!





By the way, the toilets were over the cliff .



A big thanks to Dirk for allowing me to use some of his photos.

Cheers,

Dickyb

We'll have his starter motor off before he knows it . How will we recognise him, by his zither?

Cheers,

As far as I know I descend from the Central Anatolian Yoruks, but we moved west and north west in 1400-1500s and settled.

I've never met any nomads in real life but I know of their existence, as also demonstrated by your pics. Incidentally, my grandfather used to dress just like that guy :)

If you ever bump into my long lost cousins again, give them my regards

Gert and Liesbeth, from Belgium. came to town on their way to Nepal. We put in a training session for their forthcoming adventure. We popped up to Gombe along with our resident photographer



to check out the roads/tracks.



A photo op at Gombe reservoir was a must



Gert, on the right, is about three miles tall. The chap on the left isn't .

Neat handling of a Vee Strom carrying a precious load



Anyone seen the crazy German?





The wind whistles down this valley and erodes the rocks causing strange formations. This one resembles the crazy German. How wierd is that

Hi PerpetualMotion,

I think I bumped into a couple of your long lost cousins today on a rideout with the crazy German



Though I can't be sure as neither of them looked 500-600 years old .

Thank you for your interest.

Cheers,

Dickyb

Green lake and Gunslingers

Prior to departure my bike needed some TLC. The front sprocket drive nut was in danger of boring a hole in my left ankle. The gear lever refused to lever. Better go see Mehmet then . Dirk caught the action as Mehmet lit up with a welding rod
