Trip is still very much on!
Day 83 now in Osh, Kyrgyzstan. After 2 weeks in Turkey that was very weird during Ramadan I entered Georgia and met up with two other Overlanders, did some seriously rough roads up a mountain, with one little spill shattering the indicator. Then into Russia through the very dodgy south area. Across from Saratov into Kazakhstan and onto the Steppe. A very odd place to ride in, flat endless road literally for days, but Donkey's road prowess paid off, eating up the miles for many long hot days. Made it down to Almaty in south Kazakhstan for a nice break, new tyres, chain, sprocket (that I bought with me) and a few other maintenance bits. On to Bishkek for another couple of days getting over some sickness and not doing much. Then a 2 day ride with a camp by the lake in the middle, to Osh where I'm sat now.
I'm facing some rattling on the bike now I need to figure out before I enter China in 4 weeks, sounds like it's from the front cylinder and only when cold, I've started another thread but I'm not allowed to link to it with a low post count.
The facebook page has lots of pictures going back through the days and the blog has the details on all the stories if you care to check them out.
