We spent 2 nites in Chita, as it was cold, Poly was sick, and we needed a break. We headed towards Ulan Ude early, after scraping the ice off the bike seats.
At least it was sunny!
Iíve traveled this stretch of road several times, and theres really nothing exciting about it. We did finally get to see a bear, it ran across the road in front of us.
At a gas station, turn off your stinky Izh before you get to the pump
We found a decent room about 2 hours before Ulan Ude. We wanted to make it there, but it refused to warm up, and we were beat from being cold all day.
