Hahaha!!! You're crazy man!! That place is scary enough in the day. We never even dreamed of being on the bikes during the night time when we were out there last year.

Mongolia - my favorite, it is the third trip there. East border is a very quiet place, not a single border crossers, crossing was quickly.



is not a good piece of iron



Mongolia bike does not need tires...

Vasar, loving this RR, and I am sure you know that Mongolian piece of iron rod is not a good way to adjust your chain

You sure have a lot of us waiting each day for your reports/pics, keep 'em coming.

The monument behind the tank has something of a memorial for a video game. Interesting art.

Good pictures.
That bike puts a blush on the hardcore modders.

The community of motorcyclists began its searches, bikers into place left.
Also found its remains.

Who burned an empty shed it isn't known.

What brings me the most comfort and joy in this tragical incident is that the biker community in Russia respond so heavily on the loss of another fellow biker!

I`ve been a biker since I was 16 and I am slowly approaching 43 years of age and have taken the bike all over europe from France to the Balkans, been to Iceland and due to lack of time "only" visited Northcape on a 6250 km roundtrip in 8 days last year.

I have always stopped in an instant if I`ve seen a biker that has called for my attention! Just as a reaction!
Sometimes solving a technical problem, another time someone ran out of fuel and another time a biker was just lost.

On the contrary the same thing has happened to me.
Once i lost my frontsprocket on a road to Kraljevica in Croatia after driving 2000 km from the south of Sweden where I live and ended up with 7 croatian bikers looking for my frontsprocket on the roadside for almost two full hours, one of the guys found the sprocket, it got late, there was a party and I had my own bed att one of the bikers house, five hours earlier we had never meet!!!

My point is that everywhere, no matter male, female, black, blue, yellow, young, old or side of the border bikers is like a universal brotherhood which gives me the world I want to live in. No questions asked we´re bikers aka brothers. Euphoric!

Sorry for the interruption, love your report!

Magnus

I was told that the max you can get for anything in Russia is 20 years. The prisons are so bad there that few can do the 20.

Re Manneman...comunity of bikers.

Yep, I stop.. Hell, I even stopped for a cyclist with a flat tyre t'other week...but, that's how I and all my mates where brought up. We all stop and we all wave.

Great RR vaser...that Transalp of yours certainly gets about.

Cheers
