    Hi Walter, a big thank you for finishing this series!
    Having been to Mongolia myself for an extended amount of time (no motorcycling though) I really enjoyed the episode from there.

    Well I just re-read the entire thread. It was fantastic the second time around. Great job by all who contributed, especially Walter.

    Since some of us can't go anywhere, and there's no racing, it's a good time to re read a great report.

    I know, it's crazy to have missed this masterpiece for so long . But, confinement as some benefits and I read it all everyday for 2 weeks. Plus I didn't have to wait to then watch the fantastic videos as well. Pure joy! Every aspect of then trip has been wonderfully covered and the perfect sync between the different protagonists show that, even months later the team still works as one.
    I started to read the RR because I'm planning to ride something similar in 2021 and I got pages and pages of practical information. Thank you for sharing so much with us. But, it's the human adventure aspect that made my (virtual) time with the crew so enjoyable. HUGE THANKS AND KUDDOS to all of your riders of the Sibirsky Extreme :clap

    Where's your next adventure Walter? Still rocking the LPR beauty-beast?
    Edit - I searched and found the link to the inmate interview from this year...don't know how I missed it before.
