    Not only a new bike to you but a completely untested (in the real world) bike. And riding solo. Well done on completing the journey. Grandes Cojones.

    Seeing the HU Mongolia poster in the background of the first photo reminds me there's a second Horizons Unlimited meeting coming up in Ulaan Bataar from 2 to 4 August 2019. More information: http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/events/mongolia-2019

    Thank you very much for sharing your travel story with us.

    I had a lot of fun following your ride day by day. As said before - travel with a new bike is really worth to be called epic ride.

    Safe travels in the future.

    Very nice indeed, my hat is off to you!
    I wish that I was not a workaholic and was doing something like that.

    For those of you who don't know..."Give me liberty, or give me death" was a line spoken by an American patriot named Patrick Henry to rally the colonists to revolt against the evil British back in 1775. Don't know why you would see it in Tbilisi but it's a good line for your ride.

    It's been a pleasure and an inspiration to follow your adventure.

    It's such a motivation to see a solo adventure like yours.

    Whats next on your agenda?

    awesome ride report, though the real adventure is much bigger than the pictures. i admire your achievements and you have los huevos grandes.


    :bow

    KTM should have your pictures in every dealership. you made the 790 a big contender.

    Thank's a lot for all, you made me dream. I have also read your Ushuaia trip: congratulations too.
    How many kilometers have the 790 now on the dashboard?
    Thanks and best regards.
