So far, this is my favorite picture of this report. It doesn't have beautiful scenery or food, but it's says a lot about this trip. It seems like you guys always had locals willing to help. I wish there were more people like that where I live. I would be lucky to get someone to help me change a tire here.

Sounds like good eating to me.... will give it a try. Usually we get a projector, watch movies with either beer and vodka, as well as polish sausage sometimes cooked, or sometimes we cut it up onto crackers with tomato, cheese, onion and sometimes the little polish pickles.

1) Mirek ktm - 0 problem;
2) My ktm
-here on the photo the front sprocket got loose (I used it 5 000km earlier to find the TDC and moved it) and oil was comming out (the front sprocket must be well tighten and locktied);
-I lost the front sprocket cover (at 10 000km) and it was quite muddy so the oil started to lick through the simering under the front spocket (at 23 000km);
-dirt in carb
3) Safran ktm - the bolt of the frame under the seat got loose, it was working under the weight of Safran and all load untill... crack; fix with welder; (at 23 000km);

Very reliable bikes; Next time I m taking the countershaft siemering (? the one under the front sprocket); With massive amount of mudd it lasts shorter then on dry offroad condition; This year model only weekness is the front rim - its too soft; it will take alot of hits but it's just wasnt so round at the end;

next time more minimalistic packing; 2 x 20L bags should be enough; the big bag at the top was too much;

Mac, you might check out the bag these ADV riders have developed. Looks mighty nice (IMO).
