I dont think one of the participants in that Ride Report would approve if I showed a lack of discretion

Wait another 20 years! Water is not near as important.

I was a little confused there for a minute too. I thought, "Who is this dude hijacking this awesome thread?" Then I report his report. Nice start, sir!

Day 67.

On our last day we dropped off the bikes at the transport company after Rod and Terry had done some shopping for their bikes. Terry even bought some MX boots for when he would pursue his trip with Walter. But at this point he still wasn't sure what to do. I stuffed his old boots in my panniers, that way they would come home with the bikes.

Then we drove to the transport company to drop off our bikes. We had to fill in some paperwork which took quite a while.
They had a lot of questions for us. Ordering a cup of tea or a shaslick was something completely different than talking about the weight and size of our bike's and filling in russian forms.
The girls who were helping us were really friendly and helpful, but didn't speak any other language than russian.
They even asked all their colleagues if someone spoke english and could help us. No luck this time, but in the end we managed and learned some more russian.

After we had put the bikes in a storage place we walked back to Terry and Rod who had been waiting outside.
Just before we left a guy walked up to us and he asked us if would like to come inside for a cup of tea and talk about the bikes......he spoke fluent english. Would have been nice if he had asked us 2 hours earlier

Beamster hopped on the back of Terry's bike while I used the austrian taxi service to bring us back to our guest house.
One last stop at the car wash so Rod and Terry could wash their bikes to do some service on them that afternoon.



While the guy's serviced the bikes I did NOTHING for the first time in 5 weeks

Our bags were packed and we would fly out the next morning.

Thanks everyone !!

From now we will be following the RR just like you, and read how the guy's will be doing on their adventure.

It's been a pleasure Bas & Linda reading your comments and reports in this thread. Welcome home to work, bad weather and the tiny straight roads in our crowded tiny country

@GeirEtronX: You surely missed a vocation somewhere down the road. You should have become or become a professional writer (a writer you already are). I'll be patient and wait for the rest of the story in English. That's a lot easier than trying to follow you on FB in Norwegian with Google Translate.

Just waiting for mr. C. to come back and get this show on the road again

I will be mighty sorry to see you three leave. Even from my own limited European based experiences on two wheels(my airhead and I are in love,sometimes unrequited on her behalf) the moments of reflection give a sense of immense pleasure and hopes of future trails travelled. I can only marvel at the rewards your journey will bestow when you find yourselves riding down memory lane. I would have given a lot to have been a reflection in your mirror as the dust of Asia swirled all around.
Thank you.

Stashek.

It is governments and religions that mess that up.

Such kindness

The whole family folowed us out of town and showed us where we should drive to get back to Tayshet. The goodbye was very emotional. Nikita bursted into tears and headed for the car. It was all strange. We had only been with these great people for a few hours, but still it felt as though they were lifelong friends. Now back in Norway we are working on a plan to help Nikita get the education he deserves.




Prutser letting the Mongolian kid ride his bike really got to me. I thought that was such a wonderful thing for him to do. And now this with Nikita... This RR has really raised the bar, and not just because you guys are kicking ass on the trail. It's these little acts of kindness that sometimes mean the world to people.

Keep it coming, we're all addicted.

Indeed. There's something special going on there.

Superb stuff, Walter.
