Well done Rop!
Great to see your adventure such amazing scenery -just goes to show you don't need the massive adventure bike to travel far and wide. Respect!
Thanks Dave, Thats why I have the BMW logo on my bike with the text SC90 instead of GS1250. Just to have a laugh about the big bikes..

In Uzbekistan I parked the little Honda at a guesthouse and two big, typical German blokes next to their big BMW's asked me in english with a strong German accent "did you ride that bike all the way to Uzbekistan?"... I started laughing loud, looked at them an I asked the same question, "Did you ride THAT bike to Uzbekistan? pointing out to their big BMW bikes...
So funny, they got the message tho. :lol: :lol:

That's what's great about travelling. The people you meet on the way.

Six years ago I met a bloke on a campsite in France. He was French. We got on really well and have since visited him and his family in France and we are in touch on a weekly basis.

Well done Rupert the videos are appreciated.

Thanks Bogger, Thats why travelling is so cool.
Meeting people from other countries, other cultures and discover that people are beautiful.
I never knew what was going to happen, didn't know what to expect when I started this trip and I honestly can say that the Tajik people were awesome to me. Genuine, friendly and generous.

Just the answer to those of us stuck in wet & windswept UK in these unique & trying times!
Some beautiful countries & no doubt some very friendly people you have encountered along the way.
Glad you got down to a more breathable 900 metres altitude and feeling better for it. Travel can be very tiring so listen to what your body tells you! Stay safe & keep posting.

Part 27: Kyrgyzstan/Kazachstan

In this part its a lot of riding the Honda C90.
A few more mountainpasses in beautiful Kyrgyzstan to get into Kazachstan on my way to Almaty.
One of the last cold days with snow and the last kilometers on the reliable Honda C90.
Never been so happy with a petrolstation to warm up with a coffee. :D (unfortunately I don't have footage of that)
