The rings on the decrepit building in K town are priceless.

Thanks all for the marvelous RR!

Following along until the very end.

Question Charge!!!!

Say Walter -
OK, I guess I missed it somewhere whilst drooling over great photos...

What are you using to charge up the batteries for all of this camera stuff? Solar, probably not with so much fine sunny cloudless weather...

If you have a DC converter plugged in somewhere, do you have dual outles for batteries? Are all the batteries the same or common? Do you rotate what gets charged?

What would be needed for doing this in the middle of BFE?

The last bit

After a good nights sleep in Susuman, for the last time on this great adventure, we saddled up the bikes. Our next and last goal was Magadan. Some 730 kilometers from Susuman. It was a strange day. The weather started out nice. Just some minor adjustments was needed on the luggage

It was quiet riding all the way. We just enjoyed the fact that it looked like we were about to reach our goal. Crossing our continent from West to East. Driving all the way from Norway to Magadan. Almost 18.000 kilometers, give and take a few. 8.000 of them off road and no major incidents or accidents The fun part is that Erik had the first and only puncture, amongst the Trans Sibir Team, some 120 clicks from Magadan. For 18.000 kilometers we had had only one puncture. That is pretty amazing considering the roads we rode and the way we rode.

We passed the town of Atka where we just had to take a picture

Then it started to rain. The mother of all rain came to visit. The last hour in to Magadan was spent driving in the dark and in the rain. I saw diddely squat. We just hooked onto a car and followed its tail lights Due to the rain we didn't quite get the feeling of arriving proper into Magadan. We just got to a hotel and crashed sometime after 1 am.

The next day we went back and took this picture

what more is there to say that hasn't been said before.
Honestly, have you ever heard of somebody looking back on his life thinking: "Oh, I should have travelled less and mowed the lawn more often"? (Pumpy)

Fantastic stuff guys. Thanks to all involved for the effort that went into this entire report.
Look… It's not in my nature to be mysterious, but I can't talk about it and I can't talk about why.
