So after we talked a little the kind people at the border said they would fill in all the paper work required for entry and offered me a coffee which was awfully kind of them and as i was feeling a little parched i took them up on this kind offer of a warm rosy hot cup of coffee.

Then they told me i required insurance which was very easy to buy right next to there office so i brought this and with in under 30 minutes i was on my way again, very nice border crossing i must say.

So enter Republica of Moldova!!!
Oh, were you lucky... I'm Danish (Danish Passport - strangely enough), on a Dutch bike... first it took me 10 minutes to make them understand that I was Danish, and the bike is Dutch due to the fact I live there. Didn't work out until I said "expat", then suddenly they understood... meaning "I must be coming from a poor country having to move to a rich county to be able to earn a living..." ...

Nice people though, wouldn't mind if their women would shave their upper lip

Awesome trip though...

Maybe pick up a couple rolls of DRZ duct tape for future repairs?:?

Sorry for your fall, hard way to learn
There is a link to the tracker spot where we can follow your path? Or it is useless.

Bonnes routes

Redkrouge the spot map deleted the map tracker after a few days as it was on that setting

from here onwards to Georgia it only tracked alittle when it was on and in Georgia onwards it was not used

Yes i read a few reports one recent report with one dude who just fell of whilst on the side stand in which he really smashed him self up
his ride report is here http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=942567

Also for the whole trip i had no travel insurance as i did start to fill in the appilcation online before i left but it was a longer process than joining that eharmony website which i never thought possible

My plan was if i had a cut or bleed which was to much i would put it on the exaust pipe to stop the bleeding or fail that i would use one of the bungee cords on the rear and then ditch the bike and somehow get a lift to the nearest airport to fly back to England where i would tell the hospital i fell whilst showering in the bath

For collarbones, arms, legs that plan (although I had to think about it a while) seems quite workable as long as a rider is in a place that is frequently frequented. As already has been noted, you are a bold, courageous fellow! Looking forward to the next installment!

You are a true adventurer
