    Hi

    Hope its no problem to answer your question instead of timolgra.

    The cover is a bagster tank cover. They also produce bags and seats.
    I had on cover for my Hayabusa and I really loved it!

    It's from the sound track to the film Mongol, the piece is called No Mercy.
    Great film if you can get to see it.

    This truely is one of the greats:clap :clap :clap


    Just read it wholly through waiting on a bummed back to get well- I guess too many times lifting a loaded GS or too many haybales in my yongers days.

    Again great ride man!

    Yes I know:baldy The camera was mounted to my helmet with velcro but wasn't able to check the footage since I needed a laptop to do so.
    In the past I've had far more success using a bike mounted 'Bullet' camera feeding into a camcorder, but tooooo many wires for this trip.

    Oh well, a good excuse to return:wink:

    Over a year later Baz, Pete and I meet up.

    I'm on my way home from a trip in the Pyrenees with my lovely partner, Pete camps miles away and gets lost whilst cycling through the woods, as for Baz...........:huh

    Pete says to me, "we should do it again", I agree...Baz looks uncomfortable with the idea.........probably because he'd only been married a few hours:D :clap

    Without a doubt this is one of my favorite reports. Can't imagine the wifey being too happy about the suggestion. Bad influence on him no doubt :freaky

    Congrats to Baz and Mrs. Baz.

    If you have a choice, marry up. I see Baz made the right choice!

    what a fabulous RR, read it all at once, took me hours and hours, but what a great trip!

    And thanks Tim for taking the time to put up your story into pictures and words so we all could share it.

    Not a massive fan of the film. I thought Genghis Khan was too timid, too shy, too serene too zen .... for my liking. He even looked too Japanese and not Mongolian (The actor was Japanese) ... and there was no ferocity ... no fierceness, no fire in him.

    But some of the scenes are awesome ... some of the shots in the final battle are jaw dropping. I love the shot where the line of Mongol horsemen charge through their own infantry lines in a column, then spread out in a line ... and the best part of all ... then draw the twin curved swords out at full gallop and charge along the step towards Jamukhas men with both arms outstretched holding the swords ... like eagles.
