Awesome ride report!

Expanded my vocabulary as well: I find myself saying 'sulfur!' all the time

Days 22-25

I have never spent so many days in one city and will never do that again.
Even if there was absolutely nothing to do I still wanted to stay there and just relax a bit after these boring 8600km. So here are some pics of Ulaan Baatar.

This is a place where I slept. Its name reflects pretty well my style of travelling, doesn't it?


State Departament Store.


WTF?!

I met again guys from Spain. KTM is repaired
The Tenere is overloaded, so they gave me canister with some gas as they will not need it anymore. Cool.


I went to Museum of Nature which was really cool. Even if it wasn't it costed less than 2 USD But there was one particular thing that really caught my eye. Can anyone explain to me please what is a wild ass?


No matter how good it looks maybe I shouldn't have bought such yummy breakfast as I have diarrhoea since the very first day I entered Mongolia..?

Day 26

These days in Ulaan Baatar kinda sucked. There was some rain and also something else that I cannot describe. Something was wrong and I don't know what. Perhaps too many nights at the same place..?

Anyway, time to leave the town.






Did I show you my Touratech GPS holder?


Damn!! What a sulfur!! I have travelled to many countries and always WITHOUT a GPS. I find it stupid. But this year they forced me to buy a GPS

Great ride report. Enjoying it very much. A ''wild ass'' is when a horse and donkey did the ''big nasty'' and now the offspring is roaming free in the desert.

I would say that is a mule. A wild ass is a species itself

Ok, describing every single day separately is no longer necessary I think.
I will rather upload some pictures of landscapes.


Local bikers.




Sometimes the "road" is pretty clear, sometimes the path is not so strong. And sometimes there suddenly is no path.

This kind of riding is not a big problem even as for me - offroad beginner. The major problem is that "road" sometimes suddenly becomes a sand. And this IS a problem when you do not expect it.

Crossroad.






In Mongolia there is some very special kind of space that I really wanted to see. These three weeks to get here were worth it even though I understand that the nothing I always search for during my trips might be quite stupid reason to go somewhere so far away. Nevermind.
