Yeah, it's almost impossible to find the hotter spot in the engine where you can stick the stator. Maybe inside of the crankcase. Would be almost as easy to replace it. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
This area sure has a lot of megalomaniac leaders. Those photos remind me of North Korea's capital.
Hey! check this out! The Kazak megalomaniac leader is going to be the hero of a fairy tale.........Now that is one-upsmanship at its finest.
I find it interesting that the interpretivie signs have English translations on them...but no others languages besides their own.
was this done specifically for you Doug???
Maybe the U.S. also paid for the signs?
Bastards didn't give ME the chance to make 'em!!!
Doug - something I'm curious about - on some of the visa & papers, it mentions paying in US dollars - are you able to spend dollars most of the time over there, or do you always have to "buy" some of the local currency? You must come home with pockets full of interesting coins.
English become an international language due to its simplicity in use, and prevalence (as a result of British colonisation) in world. Also English got its popularity in USSR because of cold war period as a preparation to 3rd world war (guess with who) :huh, and Rock-n-Roll period (as a result of sex, drugs... ) . According to Internet data currently on our planet is 1 500 000 000 English speaking people. As a result - English is most used language. That is why signs at all the exhibits, generally, has English translation only...
I wonder if you have to press 1 for English there?
I would doubt English is the most used 'first' language.
I would suggest Chinese or Spanish (with close variants) are the greatest spoken "first' languages.
But include 'first and second' languages I am sure English is way, way, way ahead of all others.
The three standard international languages have always been: English, French and Spanish. The amount of natives that a country has, has little to no effect on where that specific language stands.
You left out the language of love. I think it should come first... At least that's what my wife tells me.
god i love the pics you take .. keep up the good work i especially love the museum ones .. its nice to see what is in a meuseum in another country .. you know stuf thsat will never make it here to the USA to be seen
I did not realize it before, but after I took another look at Doug's traveling map/route. I thought that the white line was from a previous journey. But I was wrong! Doug is going from Germany to Magadan... and Back! WOW that is hardcore! Most guy's would take a plane after that! If the Harley makes it (the engine) That would be a huge selling point for HD! Hmmm, I could buy a used R1200GSA and replace the engine with one from Harley. Would need some work on the final-drive but is doable!
V-Twin Harley engine on a BMW transmission is not only doable..... but DONE!
Wow, what a waste of a BMW transmission
(tis an awesome trip Doug is doing and his bike does look great...)
Why would someone want to mate the least reliable part of a Harley with the least reliable part of a BMW?
Who cares .... that bike will probably never have to clock up 5000 miles in its entire life. Who needs reliability.
Lol, I have them all and I'd wager my bet on the HD motor anytime.
not to mention putting it on one of the worst bike configurations to ride....
I'd take Doug's choice for the best of all worlds....
