Amazing -- not just the ride, but being able to find the first Harley-Davidson! Congratulations on both counts.

Among all of us Starbucks-bound couch taters, you da' man in a Far Eastern Land!

PS: why do you hold a cigarette just like fellow Alabamian Truman Capote used to? (I've always wondered)

Congratulations Doug - Thanks for the report and taking us along with you. The return journey? Do we get to watch that from Starbucks ( or where ever ) as well - I'll be watching for sure.

When asked how he felt after reaching the end of the Road of Bones, Doug replied
Im wore out like a 2 dollar whore on nickel night!


If someone, you are the one to take a Harley to Magadan!

I knew you would make it! Congratulations!

15.000 kilometers back to Bulgaria then! Ride safely!

Best regards,
Andrej

Since you referred to me as a gentleman I thought I have to reply.

I am still alive but very busy. Hope to continue reporting later in autumn...

Good on ya, bro! Maybe even the first air-cooled V-twin to make it to Magadan. You gotta admit that KTM helped you get there though . That thing's closer to a Uly the anything Harley ever built.
