Again, awesome story telling skills all of you have. Thanks again for sharing!
The hair disappeared in Tynda. Max said I looked to old with it and that I had to take it off

It's back on again

You haven't anything to tell us have you Geir ( or is it "Gay-er")...have you been on Broke-Bike Mountain.

Well well...I know you Scandinavians are more permissive ...and it's a long way to Magadan...but who'd a thunk it.

Kyubyueme next

We left Khandygan in the morning. The roads were nice, but the scenery a bit dull. This was for us another transport stretch. We got our heads down and twisted the throttles as good as we could. Then we literarily came around a bend and we had the most magnificent mountains ahead of us.




We were now following the river Vostochnaya and the scenery was beautiful.




There were quite a bit of road work in the area. This is the main road to Magadan, via Ust Nera, and there are a lot big trucks using the road.




Since the M56 is gravel you also have the dust when it is dry. That said, I'll take the dust any given day compared to the mud




We had a really great time riding now. Everyone set their own pace and just enjoyed the moment.




The goal of the day was Kyubyueme, 330 kilometer's from Khandyga. There is a gas station there, a place to eat (I think the word restaurant is a bit over the top when describing the establishment) and Kyubyueme is also where you will leave the M56 in order to go to Tomtor and the Ols Summer Road.

The first thing we did when we got there was to get some gas.




Then we payed the girl in the "office". One note here. It is the same girl who is part of the "diner" crew. We had to walk over and get her. Between the gas station and the "diner" there are a lot of dogs. They looked ominously at us and circled around us. Not very aggressive, but on a high alert. I think you have to look very confident when you pass dogs like that. They will smell fear. While we were eating the dogs attacked a truck driver and he had to fight the dogs off with his Vodka bottle...

We got the girl and got the gas (no pun intended ;-). New note. She is really friendly and she collects coins from all over the world. If you happen to pass buy, remember to bring some change from home

After we got the gas we had to put up our sticker. Adrian and Walter had also requested us to put up their stickers, which we did




After the feeding frenzy we got ready to cross the Kyubyueme river. This is the first major obstacle you meet when you want to ride the Old Summer Road

Well I had been there several times before ... but had always forgot to sticker it Or on one occasion it was pissing down rain ... too wet to sticker it ...



Adrian too had been there just a week or so earlier, and forgot to sticker it.

It seems the fuel station at Kyubeme has become a compulsory sticker stop.

But rest assured, anywhere you see a Sibirsky sticker, I have been

Like the other Sibirsky RRs of the past, I can not wait to and dread to see it end all at the same time.
