    Oh wow!

    I didn't get much work done today, but I sure enjoyed this RR. Burt and Joe - you guys are the BOSS when it comes to keeping a bike on the road.

    Great adventure ! However, you guys should come again and do the proper circuit. Its thro the spiti valley to Zanskar and then to the indo tibetian border. What you've done is the easy way round :lol3 ..cheers :freaky

    Just wanted to drop a line to @Buuurrrt @Joe-motocross @minxster and @Maja for the great ride report, this one with their very memorable photos absolutely drew me in. I read it right through several years back and was totally inspired. Over the next couple of years I followed up on similar travelogues and other information, even found a coworker overseas who'd done the ride and from all these I planned my own trip.
    Getting a reputable bike vendor seemed to be one of the more important factors and with a bit of luck I got a great guy and had only a partial problem with a horn, fantastic ride but with it's own trials for sure.
    Best to each of you for taking on this journey and then time to share every turn in the road and twist of fate with all of us! :super

    Just outstanding. Your "can do" attitude made what could been an utter nightmare a true adventure in every sense of the word. BTW, Ever go back?
