Keep up the good work.
This is great.
No sulphur here!
Holy crap! What an inspiration. The Varadero was the first bike I learnt to ride on. I mistakingly thought I needed a big adventure bike to do trips like this when in actual fact the key was already in my hand. Fair play to the woman. That said the Varadero was a fun bike for 125cc and while a bit feeble on highways it would be just fine on dusty trails. Amazing.
keep going,every move you make.every single step you take,i'll be watching you...more mongolia pics please
I am inspired to do this kind of adventure. Ride safe
Awesome RR. One of the best! Very inspiring.
They're beautiful, thank you....my special "loco" friend Nice to see you back :) I wait for news from your journey....
Thats Petya ... Pyotr ... one of the main men on the biking scene in Irkutsk. Lovely guy, but he doesnt half like a drink!
..so after some kilometres I was in Kharkhorin.
..slept in a turistic yurt.. who cares it's for turists.. I am a turist too..
I ordered there some food for a dinner and for a breakfast. These guys there were really cool. At night it rained, but in the morning weather was ok.
I am without tugriks again as I exchanged all of them when I was in Ulaan Baatar. Fortunately I could pay in dollars for sleeping in yurt.
I need gas. Right now!!
After long negotiating the price I bought gas for dollars with some shitty exchange rate. Who cares.
So I went back to Ulaan Baatar. I had a good weather and it was not dark so the road was quite nice.
Man I like your style -
thanks for sharing your ride. I'd love to visit Mongolia someday - until then I'll check out your progress -
I'm back in Ulaan Baatar. I decided to sleep here one more night (in the cheapest guest house again ) and next day I will go to Russia. But I didn't know where to park my bike. The official parking place is not too safe in my mind. I parked my bike in front of the guest house and still thinking where to leave it for a night. Before I came to a conclusion, someone already stole some things from one of the bags. It was at 10PM. Maybe 11PM.
So now I'm missing lot of clothes, rain gloves, some bike stuff and - what actually pisses me off the most - my phone and camera chargers.
There is one sulfur connected with that story
At the same building where guest house is located there live other people. Two of them (marriage) saw me pissed staying by my bike and they asked me what happened. I told them and they started asking many question. I thought to myself - WTF? :huh
Then the man started making some phone calls (in mongolian, so I couldn't understand) and it soon turned out he is the head of either mongolian or Ulaan Baatar police departament Quite soon there were about 10 cops, all of them asking many question and so on. They wrote a protocol in mongolian, I had to sign it. Damn, I wish I knew what was written there.
But do you know what really really killed me? They were about to leave and one of them told me: "Now all Ulaan Baatar police is looking for your t-shirts"
Next day morning I met Hector from Mexico.
He's travelling round the world. Unfortunately in Mongolia he had a small accident in the Gobi desert and broke his arm. Now he has to wait here until the arm is ok, then he will continue the trip.
And here is the fucker that treated me!!!!!!!!!
I am colorblind I guess
thank you for the report i really like the poicture of the ruins in the mountain.
im glad to hear that your bike was successful as mine has the same motor
While I would spend ages to ponder about my ability to do such a trip you seem to have the right 'let's do it' attitude which I admire. And I have no excuse as I own a TTR600 that you said you admire
Thanks and enjoy the ride
u r totally insane and out of your mind but i like u!
such a trip that is beyond imagination for most of us but just a nice and ''easy'' ride for u!!!
keep posting my friend,amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What a great ridding philosophy... just keeping it simple and free.
By any chance do you have any way to make contact with Hector??? We have a Moto Group in México and would like to see if he needs any help.
Thanks and keep on with the freedom..
You take pretty good pics for someone who can't take pics.
I'm loving this story.
