Approaching to Khorog I recognized that the bearings of my sidecar wheel went goofy. Since I couldn't get a new set(69104 rare and to weak) I tried to find a Ural wheel. The first one expensive scrap.

The overall condition wasn't better then the thread. So Iwas glad to find the friendly colored in Murgan just arround 200 km away.
The price for eac wheel was twice the money you had to pay fpr new ones in Russia:-)

How long did the trip take?
Did you go through the Fan Mountains? Anzob tunnel?

I went from Hambuirg with Autoreisezug to Munich, Close to Passau was our getheruing point. Michael with his Aprilia Capo Nord hack, Udo with a KTM Superenduro an me BMW with sidecar headed from ther ro Villach where we took another train to Edirne in Turky. Edirne Istanbul, direction Ankara, Black see cost, Geogia, Asserbaidjan, crossing the Caspian sea by ferry brought us to Turkemistan, Turkmenbashi, Ashgabat, Farab. Uzbekistan: Bukhara, Samarkant then Tadjikistan, of course with Anzob tunnel to Dushanbe.
The fume is fume from glimming cole banks in the rock. The
tunnel ist s.th. like 3000m. Next to the entry is a little lake, what made the solo driver freightened. So we discussed a little bit before entering the tunnel. Water ends after ca. 500m and it just touched the Juggs of my Airhead. Then a paved road leads to the other end. In the middle of the pavement there are springs every ten to twenty meters. The water reaches 30 to 40 centimeter before falling back. When we passed it two third we had to stop because a construction to press the fresh concrete to tunnel walls and ceiling had to be moved to the next location.
Officially the tunnel was opened years ago.
On the way to Khorog this girls where asking if I were a tourist. "Don't you have camera?" - "Yes" - "PLease take some Pix"

And so I did. The girls were realy pleased and went away with a Thank you. That happened many times - I wonder why!

We only had six weeks, starting ninth of may. Was much to little for that impressive landscape and all the friendly people.

I thought going through the tunnel was the scariest thing I've ever done. 5km pitch black, water everywhere. I didn't know how long the tunnel was, but just kept on going. Drivers in cars going the other way were cheering me!
I was very happy when I finally (literally) saw the light at the end of the tunnel

He, Atak, that sidecar wheel looks really tall and slim. Maybe it even looks fragile. What type and size of whell ist it?

From Anzob tunnel we went to Dushabe. Than three days to Khorog. Here the wheel bearing broke down what gave us 4 days of searching for spares and finaly buying the first old wheel here. Pamir Inn is a good place to stay in Khorog.
Than the most impressive part of the trip begun. The Pamir Highway Murgab, Kara Kul, the realy high passes. In Kirgistan we rushed to Osh hurried to Kasachstan.
Via Aralsk, Aktyobe, Uralsk i got to Samara Moskau, Baltic states Poland and then back to HH.
I´will continue a littöle bit more chronological and with a few more pix.

Dirk

I took the same route. From Dushanbe I went south towards the Afghan border. I followed the Tajik-Afghan border via Zigar to Kalajchum. From there I took the road to Khohog (Pamir Lodge).
I also took the Pamir Highway to Murghab. From there I went via KaraKul and Sary Tash to Kashgar (China).
