Wow!

Stunning pictures.

Several "Front Page" possibilities here. Perhaps the one with the bikes and tank in it.

Very cool.
Tanks for posting!

Ok. I will post very last portion of pics tommorow.
As to the question:
Trip was NOT dangerous at all. People are very friendly. We speak Russian very well ;)
We are Poles, EU citizens. We have no problem with police or army during motrbike trip. Just payed 90 bucks on Tajik-Uzbek border for whole group. There were a lot of problems with bus + traaaaaaaaaaaailer in Russia. It cost a lot of nerves and dollars.

Uzay questions:
1. I was in this area 10 yrs ago, so I knew...
2. Studying reports, asking local tourist agencies,
3. It depend, there were 7 bikes. The oldest has over 20 yrs experience and a lot km behind. The younger was 27, his second season. On his first we were in Morocco
4. I am Africa Twin rider so you know my answer...
5. Transalp? Without any problems. We used TKC tyres, he used Metzeler Tourance. He was little slow on these tyres in offroad.
6. How hard was track? Comparing with? Track was rather simply. You don't need enduro to take it.
7. Below 2000 USD per head + 730 USD for air tickets (for people who had no time to ride by car)
8. No.
9. It is motorbike heaven. Pack your luggage and don't hesitate. Russian is important. You should be able to communicate. Special info for Uzay: Kyrgyz language is similiar to Turkish.
10. This year? Zanskar, Ladakh, Spiti and Kinnaur - Indian Himalaya.

As to the LWR: Of course they were overprepared. Traveling in the Asia is a pleasure. I was in Asia many times (10+), you will never find so friendly people. Everybody want to help you. It is easier to travel through former Soviet Union than through Western Europe where you have to pay for any assistance. We were invited and visited many poor people in Central Asia, we ate and drunk, we offered them money but they refused to keep it.
Their hospitality is inversely proportionate to their standard of living.
I travelled a lot in western Europe, I saw cities, historical monuments, awesome places. But people live in their beautiful houses and don't look too friendly for travellers. People on the East are different. So LWR authors have to embellish his journey, make more difficult to have a media effect.

Terrific photos. Such desolate, lonely, starkly beautiful country.

Thank you for taking the time to post.
