Dear Genghis,
in your unseemly haste to mock that fine (tho' directionally challenged) Mr Brown and his reluctant but supportive co-passenger, you've overlooked the obvious:

The mighty Bongo was a) overloaded with a couple of mildly overweight 42 year olds ( EH? EH? what are you suggesting) and their bikes, and b) the driver would have the pedal to the metal and all 53 hamster-power would be straining and raising the front wheels ..a bongo wheelie if you will. .... hence the APPARENT shallowness of the death-trap torrent. Mr B will I'm sure back me here. We may be forever traumatised by the experience.

Praise the Lord and pass the Biscuits

There isn't much good to say about the journey to Tsetserleg, the rain continued to fall and although we weren't crossing any rivers, we'd all put on cold wet boots that morning after all the river crossings the previous day so our feet were wet and cold all day and the thousands of puddles only served to keep them topped up nicely. Lovely. .
Fortunately-ish we couldn't really go over 40 and usually much less due to the savagery of the corrugations so we weren't too cold.
After we'd stopped for lunch (maybe P has a pic of the cafe -I'm still on iPics) we hauled in to a little layby in the early afternoon. These biscuits are available it seems just about anywhere and they were sometimes just what the doctor ordered.
Beware of Dutchmen bearing gifts, unless they're biccies in which case...I don't mind if I do!!



Terry was as ever lurking on biccy-patrol and had mugged one off P as he'd passed.


The day had warmed up marginally and the rain was looking as if it might stop?...bring it on

Korean

Whist we were checking the bikes, eating the biccies, having a pee and chatting (bear in mind we didn't do all the above simultaneously or I'd get a job in the circus) a 4WD came in to the layby and the guy recognised we were talking English so came over to say hello.
He was a Korean ( as I remember) business man talking American English, but his daughter was at university in England studying Business.... eh?...so the converstaion took on an air of surreality. A Korean talking English to a Scot, a Dutchman and woman and an Englishman in Mongolia. Maybe it's just me ...

He chatted for a few minues then hopped in th 4WD and splashed away.

The weird thing about the layby and this locality was-it was heavily forested. Very unusual indeed in Mongolia where you could conceivably pass all the way through the nation and not see a tree.
Just a few hundred yards after this we bumped up on to a tarmac road..HALLELUJAH!!!
We could now wick it up a little and continued along towards Tsetserleg.

Look Rod, let's ignore the fact you're riding a KTM, lets pretend we're sponsored by BMW to do this Siberian Road of Puddles

Shark? It might only be an old trout.
That's what I love about ride reports, you never know what your going to learn along the way.

This is how Ewan and Charlie would have done it if KTM had sponsored them.
