For those of you who've been following this thread, you may remember my erm 'incident' with the gay Russian truck drivers.....
Here's a short video which Baz took of me recalling the previous evenings events

Thanks for that little video, Tim. Made my day
Tim, many thanks for finishing off this report. Amazing trip.
For all those that enjoyed this thread, Baz is now adding his bit - but it would appear only on the UKGSER.COM site
Yes, it appears Baz has forgotten to put it here or he's yet to master 'copy and paste'
got a link?
thanks for the awesome rr Timbo
A most excellent RR!!!!
You sir's have exampled yourselves as true ambassador s to the ride.
thanks for posting your experiences in so much detail.
Great ride report!
I spent 5 hours to get through your posting. What a trip reading and checking out the pictures. It was also kind of cryptic reading between the lines and feeling the drama from your riding mates. Great posting and awesome experience. The pictures of the little oasis in the Gobi where you stopped for a few days and hung out with that family and the three brothers, I had this feeling that the area was the original garden of Eden.

Those places you traveled through are tied to the history in the bible, and perhaps were visited by them as well. I have sent links of your thread to my friends to also enjoy the excellent adventure.
It was in the Bayan Olgiy region in the west which I've marked with a cross.
There was a very special feeling to that place near Tsengel, originally from my earlier reading, but it was the people and their seemingly contentedness at surviving with such little grazing and provisions which was so humbling.
It was from here that Rick and I rode further into the mountains and close to the Chinese border.
How did you plan that section? Or was it more a "Hmm, wouldn't mind having a look around here. I'll ask ol' mate at this ger if there's any fuel that way." type situation?
Yes, that's about how it was.
We'd filled with fuel in Olgiy and had a range of around 300 miles, by the time we did find more fuel the bike Rick was riding and mine were very low after our extra ride towards China and back.
If I were to return on say, an Africa Twin which only has a range of just over 200 miles, I'd probably carry a spare 5L container or fill up at every early opportunity.
Spent the whole snow-day home from work reading this great thread. Thanks for the stories and pictures. I'm missing my 1150 in storage 3,000 miles away...
félicitation à vous tous,merci pour toutes c'est photos
