What an amazing ride & report! You all have my admiration & respect. The pictures & videos are absolutely incredible. Riding in places where there is barely a hint of a trail....

The morning was just fabulous.
And since the camp was in a small grove I managed to lie a little longer.
I put out my head out of the tent saw that we landed on a strawberry field.
Its quite amusing to lie in a tent and to gobble fresh strawberries washed with morning dew.

We slowly cook breakfast.





Suddenly, a distinct noise of the motorcycle engine appeared from the mountains.
At first I thought that we got drunk to glitches, then that it's locals are going to graze cows.
But its culminated with the appearance of two XR250!
We produced docking of standalone modules to the ISS.

We had a long-distance friendship with these guys.
They go from Vladivostok to Belgorod. And they spent the night in ten kilometers from our camp.
They overspent money and had to make brake pads from a wire.





We made cultural exchange.
Rare stripe BikeALL2001 bike party to the rear brake pads for XR250.



Familiarization



We told them what to expect on the trail and saw them off.
Then we have gone ourselves.





In a clearing we met space entity, intelligent by all parameters.
We failed to determine the planet this creature had come from, it was not going to contact.



We visited the main observation point on the trail.
And we even left a memo about our space crew.







We rode a little more and met a tourist.



We explained what's ahead and he scowled.
He was given a loaf of bread, wished good luck and released.
We advised him to smoke a couple of days until somebody could go as partner.



A good cameraman should be a pro in the construction of scenery!



A mountain stair.
If you look closely, it becomes clear immediately why we use reinforced cameras.





The second stair is more interesting, operators quickened.







Goodbye the mountain trail over the river, we turn on the plateau,
the special stage is almost finished.





Troopers work off aerobatics technique during the break.



I rushed forward to look for dentist. Guys are stuck at the store.
The next couple of hours I drove in an individual mode.
On the way I met a fresh Africa-twin owner who went to the kayakers festival.
Accidents are not accidental.







Having arrived in village where I was promised a doctor I began to look for a hospital.

I found it pretty quickly, but my joy was not long.
Yesterday the dentist had gone on vacation.

My question was what to do with a toothache.
And I was advised to come in a month - hearty people.
By blackmailing infirm alien base medical workers I was able to establish that the town has a dental technician.
Having conducted a successful operation - get the person at an unknown street in an unknown building
I finally presented my problem to the dental technician.

In response, he asked me a couple of leading questions. And I was worried by the anamnesis.
He advised me to go to the psychiatrist.
And to dry my feet and spend a couple of days in the heat.
Toothache was only a consequence. Having thanked him for simple and clear explanation of my problems,
I purchased painkillers and went to the meeting point with the team.







While I twisted my head everyone has gone.
I was a bit wrong at the fork and went to the top.

We had to go along the river. And I was carried away by a steep rise.





I had to turn around and catch them up.
Everything went well. I overtook and outstripped them.



Despite our cosmic luck the bridge was destroyed.
There were no chances to cross the river and follow the track. We had to return.





Che shows how the real mountain lamb should look.



There remained a tiny chance for crossing the river.
There was a bridge in 25 km back. We were going to probe it.



We found the bridge, it was private and paid.
On the opposite bank there were only hiking trails not passable on the wheels.
We decided to buy all groceries in the village and stand up for the night.
Village met us in all its glory.
Harsh Altai guys drinking up cologne and smiling kids.
And most importantly, desperate kayak girls, which lured us to their festival.







We even got ourselves a "protection", which promised to solve our problems.



Preparations for the festival



At the festival there was a disco, but I do not really remember.
I ate medication and passed out. So I overslept the festival.

Two years ago Walter Colebatch passed on this bridge,
but in the spring this bridge was destroyed by the river.
We had to come back.


The guy from Austria whom we met on a trace,
told us that he is a writer.
Probably someone knows where it is possible to read that he writes?
