Walter - another excellent report - thank you. I was in roughly the same area as you at the same time (although only briefly). I rode 8000 miles alone from Winchester, UK to Vladivostok in 16 days on a motorbike I bought from Ebay for 900. I wanted to prove that you don't need expensive kit to have an adventure.

BTW I had soft panniers which were okay, apart from getting off the bike every evening and putting back on in the morning. I'll invest in a pair of yours - lockable with a removable waterproof bag is definately the way to go.

I met up with Zhenya and Dimitry in Krasnoyarsk. You will remember them from your BAM trip. I sent on their regards to Tony P when I got back.

Thanks once again for a great RR.
