So the bike is all fixed up, and has fresh oil. I hit the road in the morning for the bike party in Balkhash, 650km north.
Once I finally find the main road to Astana, things go pretty smoothly. Flat & pretty boring road tho, but its smooth, and not too much traffic.
My bug juicer is working as planned
The only tree for 200 miles
Lake balkhash, its huge.
You see many memorials for people who died at that spot in a car crash, they will have some flowers, & maybe a steering wheel or car part on them. This must have been where a bike rider died, whith pieces of his bike.
