It's great if you have google+, you get unlimited upload for 2048x2048px sized pics.
Without a G+ account you're limited to 800x800px for unlimited storage or 1GB otherwise.

Flickr offers 1TB for free now.

This RR gets better every page. I've caught up as far as Mongolia. I love that Striking Viking was part of your inspiration for this trip. If you haven't PM'd him that info you should. He'd be thrilled and is quick to respond. Classy classy guy.

I'm hoping you're reunited with the Russian cutie in the coming pages. She seems awesome.

Loving this RR. Nothing better than seeing good people happy and kicking ass.

In tribute to this inspirational ride I took my KTM out early this morning on a dangerous, epic trip...to Starbucks. I was feeling radical so I crossed a gravel road along the way. Didn't have to, I could have stayed on the pavement the whole way, but that's how I roll. Danger is my middle name. I'll post some pics later.

Love and respect Noah.

You forgot to mention which tent and sleeping bag you used, you noob!

You a funny man, Patrol. This sounds like some of the nonsense I'd write and no one would notice or acknowledge. So for the sake of Nutter Solidarity, you get an official AttaBoy from the side of my mountain high in the wilds of North Georgia where we have lots of gravel roads I can wave at as I drive by.
We should have a banquet.

Once again,

this ride report is just stellar. Your writing and phtography has seemed to develop with the report.

Re smoking in indonesia, Noah you might find this Vice docu interesting (I wonder if you got the same impression as they portray?)

' The dangers of smoking are no secret in the U.S., but in Indonesia, the tobacco industry is virtually unregulated. The result? Over two-thirds of all men are smokers, and it is commonplace for children as young as six to take up the habit. Tobacco is a $100 billion industry here, with TV and print ads everywhere '

cheers guys!

You are assuming I have a smart phone. My phone is a $15 Vietnamese Motorola. It makes phone calls and send texts. Oh and it has an alarm and it has a torch light. But the best app of all.. a battery that lasts a week! Take that iphone!

As I am reading this amazing RR I came across these from Page 107ish.

For those looking for the Russian Rocket Operator; Gents... I found her.

Keep it up Noah! I love reading this. It's giving me some pretty big ideas

Wait.
Was that the time when an insect almost went over the windscreen
and hit your helmet?!

I love your RR Noah! Been following from the beginning. Your writing, photos, and wit have been wonderful to follow.

Everything you've been through on the trip and all the fixes you've done, I can't help but think that your multimeter is one piece of equipment that is essential for diagnosing problems on a [newer] bikes. It makes me realize I should pull mine out and finally decipher the cryptic looking symbols that look like they came from an episode of Lost.

Of course, if you found time your journey's to write down a 'How to Diagnose Electrical Problems on Motorbikes", in a journal, pamphlet, or back of a napkin, I would pay good money for it!
It is great to hear you made it OZ. Looking forward to the rest of the trip!

Pulling it out won't help , reading the manual might!

I've come to the conclusion that my iPhone is 70% of the reason I get nothing done. I probably still wouldn't travel much, but I know I'd ride more if I had less tech in my life.

Android here, but I'd probably agree with this statement
