Absolutely brilliant. Cheers for taking the journey but kudos for all the work putting this together. A real treat.

Just watched the last one out, another excellent video!
You could easily knit these all together and be able to sell it!
As I said before, a better more realistic account compared to the long way round. No support crew, no extra parts, trucks, people to make it easy just a solitary rider filming his experiences as he went along. Excellent!
I'm 3/4 the way through the first book....excellent.

Wow

Thanks for all this Oisin.

I'm just going to ride down to Tesco for a couple of cans.

taking the route you did was there ever any concerns of running out of gas, i know your bike has an 8 gallon tank and you mentioned there was potentially one stretch of over 500kms...any others like that?

good to know as i'm setting up this new RTW bike and volume of fuel is always difficult to gauge for areas that you don't know, thanks

Congrat's on reaching Magadan

You've really been through the wringer with that suspension, did you have to get a front shock made up specially as well?

Congrats on making it to your destination!!!

It's a definate achomplishment to say the least! Something to brag about and take great pride in doing...IMHO.

I can't help to think with all the flats etc, why you wouldn't think to install a front tube in your tire just to keep the front bead on the rim. It would have saved you so much grief. But as for the front shock, not knowing the BMW system at all.....it could have been a definate trip destroyer if it had actually completely let you down. It doesn't matter as long as you complete the ride and you did, so my hat is off to you....congrats!

Now....what is next? Keep the rest coming....we're still on the edge of our seats......

Then the big question is.....where are you planning to ride to next?

Just a suggestion, take a few motorcycle repair classes and learn some basic repair techniques....it will help you not only on the repair front but also on the mental side knowing you can fix some of the things that maybe you couldn't do beforehand.....not a negative thing at all.....

Eagerly awaiting the next installment.......

50 pounds minimum in those tires on that type road. Then stick in slime.

I always keep some kayopectate (SP) on hand out of the states. Helps with funny butt.

That irre kept doing what it did because of too low a tire pressure. I heard you say 32psi, That is way too low on that road. 40 would have been my minimum but I always start with 45 to 50.

Oisin probably knows that but may have been limited by compressor capabilities?

Right now I'm knocking out 2 a week... some are easier than others!!... :-)
Appreciate all the work You are putting into Your videos, quite sure I will never experience Magadan, but watching Your Videos has got to be the next best thing.
