110 days of off road to Central Asia

Earlier this year my wife (Kim) and I (Seb) went on an adventure ride from Belgium to Mongolia and further to Central Asia for 110 days of offroad mayhem. We were both riding DRZ's 400E and still grateful to Walter Colebatch for some of his Sibirsky Extreme tracks for Kazakhstan and Russia.

No, this is not a copy/paste or a hoax of Walter's and Terry's last ride, but an adventure of it's own since our final destination had nothing to do with Magadan and in the end we did only parts of Walter's tracks.

We didn't prepare too much in advance, only all our visa and some off road tracks and off we went, direction East for almost 4 months.

My wife Kim:



My ugly face (on the left):



As video says more than a 1000 words, a quick 5 minutes impression of the trip:



Still not convinced to stay for more? Here are some pictures:

That one is actually a good story, but it's near the end, so you'll have to endure all the trip before knowing that story!

Looks like the DRZ's worked well for your trip.
Looking forward to the rest of the story

I was wondering when you would start posting your trip. Was good to meet you guys in UB.

Cheers!
