    I salute you guys after seeing another venture you were in.
    I know how imaginative and venturous Poles are and I learned this very well during my 4 month stay in Poland. I made great friendships and ties of kinship.
    Good rides to you all.:clap

    Whenever I read a RR, I picture myself being there, and roughly plan a trip in my mind on how it could be done. This RR report is out of my league! My family would simply kill me before finishing the sentence:

    "Hey mum, I'm thinking of riding to Afganist...:fight"

    Keep it coming for us mere mortals... :clap

    Sambor I don't know if you have written about bike preparation in other threads. What amazes me is that you seem to have made very few modifications to the Africas. Just the essentials, not like some other adventure bikes, which look like the touratech catalog. A waterproof bag, a plastic top-case, a canister of gas, some tools and two tires.

    Respect. :bow

    This tandem's frame looks very substantial. Unless it's titanium or carbon fiber, it might need tremendous leg power.

    Brrrrr!
