    I hadn't realized how beautiful Estonia is. Looks like my kind of lifestyle. Great RR.

    It makes me smile to see that children are goofy all over the world.

    Great RR

    What a small world!

    On one of those thin long tarmac stretches of west Russia, I saw you!
    While I am overtaking we looked and saluted each other.. You were on your back home.

    I am sure you can't remember me (2 up on an orange KTM 990) on such a small glance but I remember you very very well with this legendery bike, your camouflage jacket and almost everything...

    I am some sort of a freak I guess :lol3

    You even managed to take pictures of a girl with a bike on her shirt :clap

    Thank you for the overall nice pictures. I think you manage to get the nice and warm feeling into the pictures when meeting new interesting people.

    Please continue the good work!

    Mongólia is one of my dream's destiny. I also have a 96 grey/orange 600 transalp crying in the garage. Your RR is awesome...:clap

    I've been following this thread since the beginning, and I have to give thanks for your excellent photography and your humble attitude. Well done! I'm sure that there were dark moments and challenges along the way, but your spirit seems to have overcome them all.

    An excellent stand on life.
    And the pictures do bring good moments.

    One thing: do you read and speak Russian? In other words was travel communication easy?

    Thanks for links to blog and pictures.
