Are you about ready to leaving Kazakhstan? Or is it going to be your new home?
Well, I've been here 15 months, maybe it is time to move on to the next destination, I'll spend the summer as I really enjoy the mountain biking around here (wish I had a motorcycle though, couple plans just didn't work out for that!) but I'll be looking to move in the fall for sure, still too many places I haven't been to to hang on too long anywhere...

Get well soon Doug... we are all with you (in a figurative way I mean)

The bottom end of the rod is loose. I don't know if I could replace that bearing. But the mechanic doesn't want to.It's a 3 piece crank. He is concerned about alignment and correct side clearance. I've done them before. But I don't want to go against my mechanic and current landlord.

So, yes the rod is okay. The bearing is bad.

I'm going out in a while to get some more. I may upgrade and get the type with smaller wood chips in it.

I think I may feel better today. But I have been fooled before.

To the OP, enjoying the RR. Here's hoping you start feeling better.

Marvin, good buddy. You are answering my prayers. I found quite a few on eBay and sent questions. None have answered yet.But it is Sunday. My KLR is a 2006.I want one from 2000 to 2007.They are the same before 2000.But I don't want older unless I have no choice. They changed after 2007.They should have a bearing on one side next to sprockets.I think they all will be that configuration anyway. Of course I want to get it very soon.I'm not sure how long these wonderful people will put up with me.I'm in Ulan Ude, Russia. I'll need to get an address for shipping.

Say hi to the gang for me.Today my diarrhea seems to be getting under control. So I feel good.I was nervous about going to Mongolia as I was
Thanks again.

Doug

Thanks for the thought. I've taken Cipro before. And I have been in contact with my good doctor from home. As of this morning I don't think it will be necessary. I think I may be over the hump.Next thing to fix is my motor. Hope it doesn't take 2 weeks.

I am staying at my mechanics house. His name is Sasha, his sons name is Stas, I don't know the wife's name, and Stas friend Andrey seems to be here more than any of them. He has been looking after me a lot. 99% of our communications are with translators.Nothing better than being taken in by a family and experienceing real Russian life. I'll post pictures tomorrow. I'm too tired tonight. I mean this morning.

About 3pm these 2 21 year old boys asked if I'd like to go to Russian baseball. Well yes.They loaded a truck with 2 quads, generator, refrigerator, amplifier and sound system, etc.We get there and the five of them need 1 more. So I'm in.3 against 3.I'm older than the combined age of the other team.You hit the ball, then you sprint about 60 yards before the opponents get the ball and hit you with it.About my 3rd sprint, just before getting hit with the ball, I pulled my hamstring. Old man playing a young mans game. I'll limp for a while, I don't care. Had a great time. Then a young woman came. She ran by me and jumped and did a twisting flip in the air, landed and went another 20 feet and did it again.One guy said that is Ilena.I wondered if her last name is Lot.He said she is a world champion fighter. What kind of fighter got lost in the accent. You get the picture now. A world champion is my backup.

We get home and I get to clean my stink off.It's been a while. Not like home. No bath tub.Pictures in the morning. I'm tired. Good night.
