Yes, very cool. Now is the real part of the trip. The way they showed it on the map on page 1 (from Irkutsk towards NE) is probably the toughest ride in the world.

Brilliant humor too (and I don't think they are gay, just a bit short of female company )

Is that the new "politically correct" terminology ????

Spectacular report. I almost feel I'm there with you guys. But virtual alcohol has no effect.

Don't know if this report will ever be matched. Like others have said, this is a legend in the making, and also sets a new standard for adventure riding.

Mongolia

By By Mongolia. When we have arrived to the border at 18.15 we were told that the border (its the main mongolian border) has just closed.
A bit pissed off but found a nice gostinica near the border post with everything we needed: good food and beer. A very nice mongol has joined us and during the evening he said aboud 7777777 "KTM zajebatsia! KTM zejbiasta machina" which means he was a huge crazy fan of KTM. And his only dream is to have a KTM.

So no the direction Irkutsk. Its not too much on our way but I have send there a lot of motorycle stuff earlier which I have to pick up.

So we have arrived to the Bajkal lake - the biggest and sexiest reservoir of fresh water.
