    Happy new years everyone. I'm thinking the Altai region could be the most understated places of beauty in the world whether motorbiking or not.

    Was watching episode 14 on the TV and my girlfriend was watching along. At the end she asked "do you have more of these episodes?".
    My reaction:
    :eek2

    Turns out she likes them as well! :D ...so we watched episode 1 to 13 again.
    Now she's hooked too, thanks :clap

    Btw, great choice on the music. The ratio between music and engine noise is spot on as well :thumb

    I think you could. I am not a fisherman and find it easier to just buy my food (I personally dont even take a stove - but buy stuff I can eat without cooking)

    Walter,this is so good that I'm sending the link to my friends that don't even ride.
    The Altai is on my bucket list. By the way, this is really well done. Thank you.

    I love these trips. I am watching another series from a guy from Bulgaria making a ride to Mongolia. I find these entertaining, facinating and a workable substitute while I sit bundled in blankets staving off the 8 deg f weather here. I wish I was riding, but these help!

    I think that "tank bag" will end up costing more than the bike, and be much more painful in the end. (which isnt always a bad thing, so I've been told)

    I dont want to take away from this thread by posting another series in it. I would send you a PM but it wont let me. But really, you can search YouTube for Motorcycle Trips and get TONS of videos.

    That "tank bag" seems to be quite maintenance intense. ;-)

    @Colebatch , Walter do you have a write-up of your altitude record setting ride? As a 70° Berg owner, of course I need to read it! Thanks for this report, the DVD, and now the YouTube vids.
