where's Raff?



We bumped into this guy in the middle of Mongolia. Said he met a guy on a motorbike named Noah. We knew you guys would get along just by looking at the beard.

Nice update Noah. Not sure if I can put my finger on it.....but interesting to read your writing now vs. 6months or so ago. Missing words, fragmented sentences.....I love it! I can hear you communicating with folks that do not speak english, and it's pretty cool. I haven't been out of the country minus Canada for many years. I miss charades, and broken English Thanks for bringing that awesome travel feeling back.......

Mud, tire chords, and a cold one! All in a days work Thanks Man! Really enjoying this

Reference the writing, I've noticed the same thing. When put to the test, you revert to stream of conscious writing. Less of a "trip report" and more of a monologue about what happened. I can only imagine the last bit, waking with coffee, to the mud, the checkpoint, the traffic and being greeted by smiling faces, beer in hand. Bravo once again, Noah.
Bravo.

Sorry about my shit English. Apparently as you try to learn other languages you begin to speak like them.

"You like I take your picture?"

Not shit English....stream of consciousness (natural) writing. Hunter S. Thompson made it his trade mark. I like it.

Thanks for taking us along

Fantastic ride report and continues to be addictive.

As I'm sure is the case for many on here I'd love to do something similar.

Even when I get the time I'll not be able to make it the experience you have. A lot of what you seem to simply take in your stride will be more difficult for me to enjoy, multiple punctures and mud on top of a hard days riding. That's tough.

Bottom line though is that it is inspirational and getting me much closer to that type of trip than I would have been.

cheers dave

Nothing has given me beard envy before like this RR. 26 and I still can't grow a beard for sh-t.

Just caught up on this whole deal. Love it. I have about 14 months (416 days?) before I get to abandon my desk to start a similar trip. In the grand scheme, not long but it sure feels that way now. But staring at your photos of the most rad looking places on earth makes it go just a little quicker. Thanks man. Big thanks.

And to think I was even thinking about shoveling extra money for more grunt on an 800 instead of my 'Tao? Noah's and Colebatch's real world experience help put that one to rest...

Well had planned that more or less but as Mr. Horak is not reacting on that post nor on an email I think it's better not to do that. I travelled two days with him and Svieta and it was nice...

Sorry for not responding blackcaps. Prior to this wifi was.. well.. no where to be found? Your pictures were great. I spend the past few days with bike club here in Yuzhno. (thanks for the contact) If you have more pictures, feel free to post. Also a link to your RR if/when you do one! I've been busy doing some moto repairs and trying to get documents in place for Japan. Tomorrow I will find out how hard it is to enter japan without a carnet.

Not Magadan luggage. It is the Giant loop Siskiyou pannier. Harold and the crew sent them to me when I was in Georgia to beat the piss out of them and see how they held up. 33,000 km of hard offroad in the stans and Siberia and they are still working/looking great. I like them more then the Great Basin for this type of travel.

On the front there are straps that connect to the frame. There is also dazy-chained webbing on the inside to use to attach. All the weight is carried by the section over the seat.
