Great pictures!
What time of year was the trip? Or did you just complete the trip?
What happened to the BMW being repaired?
Is a big twin the right bike or would a 650 single work?
Any gear you brought that you didn't need or wouldn't bring next trip?

Just watched Long Way Around.

We started Sept. 15th 2006 and have finished in early October.
Kardan transmission in BMW 100GS was completetly broken so we found a truck and sent BMW and driver back to Bishkek (1000 km - 350 USD).
Big twin is the best bike for his trip, but single will be ok too. It is NOT a difficult trip.
We were rather good prepared for this trip so we have what we need. But Franz deceide to leave kardan at home
Long Way Around is very funny movie ;)

ok, here are the questions

1-) How did you decide on that trip and why did you chose this route?

2-) How did you prepare yourselves for this ride?

3-) What was your experince in years and kms also?

4-) Which bike showed the most efficiency?

5-) How was tranSalp performance and what was its tires?

6-) How was the people's attitudes and how hard was the track?

7-) How much money did you spend per one head?

8-) Have you ever said a sentence starting with 'i wish we would.....' ?

9-) What do you recommend for people to copy this ride to do?

10-) What's your future plan ride?

Regards

Yeh? How do you mean? Because they were overprepared, overloaded, making it look more difficult than it is?
Or do you just find Ewan and Charlie funny. Oh no, it couldn't be that........

Fantastic pictures, some of the best I've seen on this site, and that is saying something. Pity that the camera-work on LWR didn't give the same sense of grandeur to the landscape.

This must be some of the most extraordinary scenery on the planet...stunning to see, congratulations and thank you.

Was everyone on EU/Polish passports?

Were there any shakedowns for tarifs on bringing bikes in?

Any difficult border crossings?

Thank you again.
