Sure the 1000 dollars is very low amount.....
Tell me the cost of the visas??
Felicitations on completing the trip and giving us a good time.
You also managed to keep your hair in top shape:
have a snickers.
Thx. With these money you seems to me like a magician. My trip will be a little longer (around 20.000 km.) and I calculate to spend around 4.000USD...that seems to me reasonable price.
I think 4000usd is ok......Im planning the same trip.....
I enjoyed reading about your trip. Nice adventure.
If I had 4000USD to spend I would surely go somewhere really far.
I am not a magician, simply I am polish ;-)
It was a pleasure to read your RR. Great adventure!
I have 2 question.
Could you tell me more about road from Karatobe to Aralsk ( 400km wo gas ). Is there a road through Shubarkuduk, or there is only one way through Aktobe? MAP
And one more, Did you go from Murghab to Khorog and then you back same way to Murghab? Why you dont want to go up to Dushanbe Is there some problems to go this way?
Something like this: MAP
Awazing, "simply" amazing. I loved to read yoou, thank you for sharing !!
I envy you :)
Great route! Good report!
Hey yeuop tell me how it was the performance of the XT600 in high altitude...Did you have any matters with the carbs?Any lack of power?
Oh i forgot, i got my self an XT600E....Cool bike get it on my hands in 2 days!Hope to go together to the Pamirs!
Great report and I learned that for whatever reason, I must see Yaks in person!
We have them in the Zoo, although for whatever odd reason, I don't believe that's what you meant. I think I might follow you.
Great pictures; Great story; Great attitude! Totally enjoyed! Thanks for the work of letting us follow you.
Zoltar: I am sure you may find gas somewhere there.. sometimes it might just take you a little more time.. if you make a small detour you will find gas on that road from Karatobe to Aralsk for sure.. now I can't recall the name of the village but will find it if you wish..
I did not go to Dushanbe because there was not much interesting to me.. but it was my first time in central Asia, I'll be back someday ;-)
zandesiro: my XT did well in high altitude.. of course power was lower and fuel consumption got higher.. but the funniest thing was sound change..... instead of PUM-PUM-PUM-PUM-PUM it was more like PUFF-...-....-PUFF-...-...-PUFF a bit like Royal Enfield sound or so.. but generally it was ok and I did no changes in my carb settings
Great to read your ride report here and glad to know you made it home.
We talked a couple of times. Once, outside the Italian restaurant in Bishkek when you were trying to figure out your GBAO permit situation and once at the ATM in Khorog, right after you arrived in town.
Looks like you had a fantastic trip. I need to start doing "secret exercises" to keep in shape on a long bike ride
nice to hear from you! I remember our two meetings, I couldn't recognize you in Khorog though I guess I must have looked pretty much confused in Bishkek when I was trying to figure out my GBAO permit, haha
See you someday on the road!
Surprisingly winter here is pretty good for bikers so I brought my bike again to Andrzej Rduch (my mechanic in Cieszyn, Poland) to have a look at it.
Need to fix some small things and also to prepare my bike for the next trip in 2014 ;-)
I love it, very impressive.
Where do you plan your next trip?
hopefully as far east as I can get
but time will show
Vladivostok or Magadan? :)
