Got to agree with you, that part of the world is incredibly beautiful and affects me a lot when I do go there.
Stunning photo's, great adventure!
I think that part of the world is truely a great adventure bike paradise and one can dial in your adventure experience to suit any taste. You guys seemed to have dialed into the red zone.
I often wonder where that road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. Appologies to Mr Frost
