    What a great ride report.
    It's a place on my list to ride. Perhaps I need to elevate it up that list after this.
    Thanks.

    Wow, simply stunning.
    My trip by proxy.
    A medical incident 4 years ago ended my riding, this was basically a future trip that was on my bucket list.

    Very, very nice! A wonderful way to learn about a part of the world that has only opened up to me through a couple of ride reports.

    I would love to hear more about how your bike did and your impressions.

    Thank you!

    As others have said, great RR. Perhaps perfect - comprehensive and inspiring. Plus, 80 days for $3500 - wow.

    What languages do you speak and how was it navigating towns, borders, etc. in those regions re. language?

    Igor speaks at least, a perfect english ( better than mine:clap) probably a good basic russian, is able to understand some spanish .
    And; more than an inspirator, he is a very nice, friendly and smart person.
    Last : as we say here among riders, travelers ,and othes this guy is a serious " client " aka , a hell of a traveller :smile6 .

    I love the way that have lined up the various fruits and sundry dry seeds, it's worth a couple of extra coins just to see that they take pride in their shop.

    Igorshen, you are a true motorcycle ambassador. Before joining ADVRider, I could have not have given much thought to Central Asia, but ride reports like this are quite inspiring. Thank you for sharing your account of what appears to be an amazing trip!

    Thank you very much for this great and well photographed RR. I am not as adventurous as you and greatly admire your willingness to take on a trip like this and then share it with the rest of us. Thank you, again!
