To use the 690R should be able to do " in the eyes of steel " and firmly squeeze rolls on the ass .

At the same time using the 650Xch can do the same thing , but with the usual beer belly and a human face .
( Seeing the BMW emblem females of all ages are more favorable to you)

And if you absolutely alien sporting ambitions and home front of the TV is much more important to the gym need to take 650L .
This is a real " American sofa tourer " , but you need to forget about the romantic adventures .
( No chance against the KTM and BMW no, unless you are traveling alone or in company with Kawasaki )

KTM690 is not best,

The weather was fickle in the morning.
At first it seemed that there is no life we will all die.



But in an hour we were having a bath.
We could not believe that the water is fresh and not cold.
Well, more precisely, it was not warm, but it was acceptable for swimming.



Good Samaritan dropped in to us on his bus for the glass of tea.
We showed him where we came from.
For some reason he looked at us with different eyes, said goodbye and was gone.



Since there was fucking picturesque nature around, we set semi-rest day.
That is long preparations and strengthened food.
The most surprising dish for breakfast was Che BORSCH!

The secret of ‘ChЕ’ special taste is three cans of corned beef :)



The observant reader may see green shoots in the hills. This is five-meter height trees. This is to facilitate the area scaling.



There is always something to do on a semi-rest day. For example, to replace the broken bolt in the subframe.





Welcoming Mongolian sun came out and we felt like guests of Hurghada.



We took sun baths which are very useful for space tourists.



Washing dishes was conducted by the old Airborne tradition by dipping in a lake with head.



A huge flock of birds carried a demonstration action "carpet splashdown " on the surface of high mountain lake.



Having rested enough, we slowly went sightseeing. Sand dune fights against the lake.
And sand tongue of bizarre shape goes deep into the lake.
We requested MCC to have a ride. The answer was positive.

























You could say that it was the apogee of our flight mission.
It's time to turn the page in our star charts and to move to Lake Baikal,
avoiding offensive city’s nebulas by starboard tack.

On the way back we were suddenly attacked by local females of membranous-flyway subspecies.



Using our relaxed condition they managed to establish control
over some part of our squad for a short time and even to grab one of the spaceships.

We were not defeated only because it was not the most beautiful spacecraft,
which cuts through the endless expanses of space by our fellow paratrooper commandment!



Squeezing our libido in fist we captured our spaceship back with lightning onslaught.
(Libido was not affected).

During this incident the flash drive in my photo fixing module was hacked.
That is why my further photo story will not be so full.
Part of the data has been irretrievably lost. But that's nothing.
All starships are again under our control, we can take the power to restore naughty psyche and move on.





We rush through the valley ahead is the stone cliffs assault.



Lastly, this lovely planet shied large hail at us. Well, like it wept on it’s heroes as it could ...





Having passed the rocks and we went out into the valley and rushed in pursuit of the rainbow.

The router fails. MCC blocked by the moon. There is no connection.
All navigation devices are in a stupor because of the magnetic storm.
A couple of parsecs we go on tourist compass and contour map, ie at random.
Our special training allows that and the team is well coordinated.

We do reconnaissance zigzags along the way by jumping over canyons and
craters left by the molten magma billions of years ago.



Rainbow hid from us in the pouring rain.
We raced up the prancing and winding track in the crossfire of icy meteor shower.
After a couple of hours we were so accustomed to the water above and below that the speed had risen to 80 km/h.
We are a real ENDURO GANG - INFERNAL CONQUEREROS OF WILD OUTER SPACE.
Suddenly I saw movement in one of the parallel ruts out of the corner of my eye.
I turned my head and I could not believe it. Local man is speeding on a fragile Chinese spaceship with his wife, child, bag of potatoes and
three packages out of supermarket.
And he rushes almost the same speed as we do, with a baseball cap as protective gear.
I almost fell from such a derogatory treatment of the known space travelers.

The local spaceport is full. They touch us and thy are trying to speak.
They shoot cigarettes. Russian language teacher came from school.
Frankly we did not understand what she says.











On the outskirts of the village there was a petrol station.
We refueled and continued rushing. Suddenly a frantic radio hiss and swearing.
Energy prominence whish was not detected by our radars hit Amir.
He remained alive, his starship was hardly affected, but his foot looked bad.
Amir responded by swearing on palpation. We spent the night among rounded fossils.
Ketanov works!
