are two totally separate things!

tank held 4.2 or 4.5 gallons before I 'relieved' it to make the forks fit (I forget which) and the spare holds 1.5 gallons.

thats 22 liters to you furriners. so, if my calculations are correct (are they ever?) but IF they are,

(puts on cipherin hat)
ok, aught times aught is aught, carry the 3, times it twixt by forty, carry the 8......

well, fuck it. I figure close to 360km from plum full to oh shit!

which will only be a problem if the only town on the old summer road is outta gas. Or if I forget to fill up somewhere. Which does happen.

I'm plannin to meet Tom (motoreiter) in Yakutsk, & we'll tackle the RoB together. I wouldnt try the old summer road alone. This depends on weather also, if it rains alot, we'll stick to the 'good road'

Also, there a chap from jolly old england named Simon that I'll probably meet up with somewheres about Mongolia.

They are both ridin BMW's, but I told em not to worry, I'll bring a tow rope along. I wont leave them stuck anywhere!

My bike hotel in Bulgaria. ADVriders get 1st beer free!
