Thanks for the link Steve! Yet somehow, we feel like we can't get across America without a $1000 GPS, $2000 luggage, a $15000+ motorcycle, $1500 worth of protective gear, thousands worth of tents and camping supplies etc etc. Really makes you appreciate the simplicity of motorcycle travel in its original honest form.
+1 Fantastic ride report and pictures!
It is hard for me to believe that in 2013 a "tourist" can actually ride through this part of the world. I traveled in some very remote areas in northern India and Nepal in the early 1970's but would not feel comfortable doing the same now in 2013.
