Apparently some of my Turkish friends were exaggerating also
When do you think you will be getting into Mongolia? I'll be in Altai by this time next week at the latest.
Let me know if you run into bike troubles along the way. I have contacts that can help you in Osh, Dushanbe, Bishkek and now Almaty. The fuel is total shit in Uzbek. I have heard of some people having problems with it. The KTM ran it ok but my MSR camp stove wouldn't burn the shit.
Depending on your where your next oil change is... You can get Motul synthetic in Tbilisi. Also Bishkek and Almaty. Its about 2x as expensive in Bishkek though. I also saw Respol and Liqui Moly here is Almaty.
Don't forget about the tire I left you in the desert
