Checked out your site & tried ordering a book but without success.

I think the problem is that the delivery address options are limited to the US only. I get a message stating that I've entered an invalid Shipping Code, with an Asterisk against the Zip Code field where I'd entered my UK postcode.

Any ideas?

Steve

You're right about it not being cheap here. I dine at a lot of convenience stores and supermarkets when I'm on the road. Noto's a nice peninsula with lots of good scenery, especially the bay on the right. Great view of mountains.

The one on the right wanted to go with me to Russia but I told her no because there is not room for both her and Fluggy.

Good to see you're on your way

It seems like a year ago that I was riding around Japan, but it's been less than a month. My secret to keeping costs down was to camp every night and visit an onsen for a bath. The countryside was beautiful.

It can be scary riding places like siberia alone. I was off the "main" road when I crashed and laying there in a ditch by yourself with nothing but mosquitoes and broken motorcycle parts for company is definitely a "what the fuck am I doing?" moment.

I gave up on picking up my bike with a broken rib several times. I camped on the road and no one came by the next day. Finally you try again. And again. I gave up on straightening the Jesse racks and things using only rocks and branches, but you just HAVE to do it. I almost couldn't go becaue of lacking two 13mm nuts. I finally found two holding on my gas tank and tied the tank on.

In Mongolia now and loving it. The Naadam festival wsa great. We are off to the Gobi day after tomorrow. Very exotic. Very nice here in Ulaan Baatar. If its digital photos of women you want- you better have alot of memory cards.

I spoke to a guy who was hanging withEwan MacGregor when he came through a few weeks ago. It seems that he didn't get the Touatech hard parts for his subframe so it broke (even though all his gear is transported in one of the support land rovers). They got a Mongolian welder to fix it, but he forgot to disconnect the battery. Fried all the electrics- computer ABS- the works. No Mongolian could fix it, so BMW flew in a factory mechanic into the middle of the Gobi desert to fix it.

My starter motor is making funny noises. You think they can fly out someone to look at it?

See you when you get here.

Pete

That´s BMW, always going the extra mile in order to help the unknown stranded adventurer. I wonder if that is going to be in the video, or documentary?


One would expect them to have their own welder specialist engineer in the staff. And people say they´re not roughing it, next thing they´ll have to do their own cooking and washing, and pitch their own tent, and fuel the bikes, the force must be strong in them.

Great stuff that Pete! Isn't MacGregor running a new 1200GS with CAN bus single wire electrics that have no fuses? Bet they wish they had fuses now

Not to Hi-Jack the big vikings thread but do you have a site for your ride?
Or at least a thread around here somewhere? Love to follow your adventures.

Your account of laying in a ditch in the middle of Bumfuck reminded me of
riding in Thailand with a dumb ass beany helmet up by the Mayamar border.
Late in the day flying down this beautiful two track on my new Honda CR125
dual sport rental when I get cross rutted. In a heartbeat I was plowing
fucking mud with my lower lip. Knocked the shit out of myself but luckily was
able to ride on. What a dumb ass. Could have been a disaster. Riding alone
has its rewards but one must use good judgement, no?

Ride safe! Both you maniacs! Hows your Ruskie?
Greetings from the Bay Area! (18th & Castro not my real location)
