I`ve written a few Ride Reports (all on a much smaller scale than yours though) so I am aware of,and really appreciate,the time and effort you`ve put into compliling this masterpiece for us.
And I also know how nice it is to hear in return how other people have enjoyed and appreciated those efforts.

I`ve read this Thread a few times and often gazed at the photos,daydreaming.

Thank you so much,Suqsuda.

Hmm...very interesting!
I look forwards to being able to read about that in due time.

Hopefully you`ll be using gas powered Urals .

Hi Suqsuda! Why didn't you let me know you've done this RR??? I gave up on you! I checked today (after a few months) whether there is any new RR about Caucasus and... here we go! Thanks a lot. It is great! I was supposed to study but I was stuck to the screen for the last hour. This time you brought back memories! Seemed you had similar adventures to ours nearby Tsalka, hahahahaha. Is it a cursed or blessed place for bikers???
Anyway. Thanks again - it was a great story and pics.
Let us know if your plans for the next "green" trip take any real shape!
Actually I have an idea for it! Use pushbikes! ;)

Thanks for the bump, OrangeOlo, and I really enjoyed your RR too. Georgia is one of those unique and very special places, for sure. I'll keep you posted any plans for a rerun.

Why you kept it 8 years for yourself - I can't understand
Anyway - great short movie! Made me want to go there again. Especially to Az (as we never got there...). It is not gonna happen this year. Maybe next???? Thanks for sharing. Have you got anything more in your sleeve???

Bump. This report needs to get to the top for awhile. Let others read it.
Brilliant trip. Thanks for sharing.

A great RR. thankyou. old unreliable bikes certainly add a flavour that seems to be missing in our modern day adventures, my bmw1200gs has done 110k klms and stopped only once in that time.(battery)
I seem to be drawn to this type of challenge in an adventure, remembering days gone of holding things together with wire to get back to civilisation.
I will possibly stick with the bm for now and not sell it to buy a Ural,the thing is I still get to wire things up (zip ties now), but that's only because i fall off a lot !

Thanks for the bumps, guys, and thanks for reading. The planned reunion ride has not materialized but I am still hopeful of something in the future.

Good stuff.
Been looking on maps & traced your ride report.
Good grief, the old maps showed no roads.
New maps make the trip still look interesting.

Be fun to try to meet some of the old contact along the second ride.
