Great video. Love the decision making process. can only be done like that when time is not a major factor.

That's what adventures should be like.

Keep it up mate.

Hello Noah!


Irkutsk Motobar: Artjom from Xanti-Mansinsk prepares his bike while Svieta from Komsomolsk-on-Amur and Noah from Minnesota discuss the road along the south shores of Baikal.


Leaving Irkoetsk. Whithin a few minutes I know that Noah's driving style is very different from mine. He opens the throttle full and 'takes off' after every stop with a wheelie.


Good habit: Only take breakfast after some time on the road.


Waiting for breakfast: Phones, smartphones and cameras come to table.


First view at Baikal near town Kultuk.


Waiting for the train at Slyudyanka.


Small stop along the south shore of Baikal. The asfalt is bad. Trees everywhere so there are few places where you can have a view at the lake.


Not to many places like this: Nice view over Baikal.


Primitive petrol pump. Pump only showed quantity in whole liters. Not price/liter or amount.


Some needed roadworks were going on. For Noah this is all spoiled effort as it appeared that he liked gravel more. And quite often he was driving besides the tarmac on gravel or dirt standing up on the KTM.


Not far after Babuschkin we found a 'Turbasa' where we could spent the night.


At Baikal don't expect a street or avenue along the shore with hotels and restaurants with terrasses looking out over the lake. Here we came back from the lake where there was nothing to provide us a decent meal. So Noah went out fishing with Svieta.


Early next morning leaving for Ulan Ude.

Noah, sounds like you need to work on your roll cast. If you ever make it back to the North Shore you should come down to the south side of the lake and I'll take you out on the Brule. Lots of trails to ride, too! It's nice to see some updates. I'm on a short journey of my own, riding down the west coast by bicycle with a friend. It's been a fantastic trip so far (other than the headwinds) and have met a lot of great people from all over the world. Looking forward to more of your journey.

Noah,
Just finished catching up and now have that empty feeling felt after finishing a good book - only this is time it is helped by promises of more amazing updates to come! I think you're doing it just about perfect. Thanks for taking us along...

Safe travels man!

Noah, thanks for sharing your adventure with us. It's truly an epic adventure.. I'm actually bummed I caught up with the RR... I hate to admit it but I enjoy the parts when you have mechanical issues with the bike and see how you handle the situation because its gratifying to see you get going again. Very impressed with your mindset and overall outlook on things. Have fun..

Whew! This report has distracted me too much from work the past two days! Made it to current! Now I can get back to work.

Great report Noah. Thank you, as so many others have said, for taking the time to record your trip. As another who has been trapped by the "golden handcuffs" of job and family, I love getting to vicariously see the rest of the world. Your perspective on it is awesome and makes the report so much better. Great photos too!

Question for you: What is with the beards on world travelers? I had a German rider (Hund) stop at my house for a few days to do work on his bike. As you can see, his beard would give yours a run for its money:




Too bad yours got cut off. Good thing they grow back!
