    The following morning after grovelling apologies from us all, Sybil on the right forgives us and sees us on our way with her lovely assistant.



    Right, let's go and do what we came here for!

    Great report!

    We have returned from our trip to Baikal with my wife and I enclose herebelow some shots of the motels we stayed along the same root. That is a motel near Kazan, a motel called "Khutorok" 150 km prior to Novosibirsk, a motel near Achinsk(met two German bikers there), a typical room in a cheap hotel/motel( town of Nizhneudinsk), a hotel on shore of Baikal near Irkutsk.

    Though the wooden bridge on the "Federal Highway M53 Baikal" is impressive
    keep going

    IT and hi tech plays little part in my life since I'm too thick to understand it, so here's a rough idea of the route I had in mind

    We've been to London (and California Superbike School ) several times - so she knows where the biggest gay community in Europe is

    We're headed SW for the the Gobi, to Dalandzadgad via Mandalgovi.


    Dennis the Ozz is with us now




    Mongolia is a vast empty country...perfect


    Get on one of the more well used tracks and the corrugations will shake your fillings out, ride slowly and you'll destroy the bike, ride fast and it'll destroy the bike more slowly.
    It's a no win situation.


    So ride where you want.

    The feeling of riding in a landscape such as this, with sky to match is indescribable.

    No tarmac anywhere, no kids holding their hands out begging for stuff, no police, no irate farmers.

    Nothing, yet everything.

    It's difficult to know whether to laugh, cry or just be.....whatever you do, it'll be ok.


    Yeah, don't worry I know where we're going


    Dennis and Baz join me.


    Baz pauses for a snack.


    Then discovers his rear Wilbers shock has blown
    KEA

    Baz's rear shock was removed and some preload wound on manually, the bolt was tight going back in, perhaps it was bent it would be the cause of a big problem later.

    Rick's Landy also needed a minor bit of attention. The bottom nut had pulled through the washer on his shock, this also happened earlier in Russia.
    The kids were just great, so enthusiastic and friendly


    This is a very remote town, one or two streets do have short stretches tarmac but that's it for perhaps 300 miles.

    Throughout this trip I noticed the attitude of adults and in particular children changed the nearer to a road you were, on a main road it became worse and in towns children can be little gits the world over.
    Access to American TV culture is spreading like wildfire and there seems to be no way of stopping it, let alone reversing the trend.
    (Let's see how that comment goes down on ADVrider

    Mongolia was the exception where they were all great.


    These children were intrigued with my 'Camelback' water pipe, getting them to look up and squirting them with it caused shrieks of laughter

    Excellent report and pictures. I'm hooked.
    What we need are clearly defined areas of doubt and uncertainty!

    Check out these cool bikers


    Way cooler than a BMW corporate twat suit


    All fixed up and we head south again.
    Sand begins to become more common, I love it, some people hate it, more of that soon


    Two and a half days after leaving Ulaanbaatar we arrive in Dalandzadgad, on the outskirts we find scrap vehicles carefully placed....perhaps by an artist, proclaiming that motor vehicle may come and go but the desert always remains.....I wondered what the dinosaurs of that region would have thought.
