Thank you Alfodr! I don't have social media account because I can report only one trip a year and I think it could be a little bit for my followers.Goodness @talox , I know you said you didn’t do social media, but the quality of these photos and richness of your experience are worthy of being shared to inspire other bikers do to what you have done. Have you considered writing a book, either self-published or with the help of a publisher?
Really like your story and pictures, trully inspiring. Thank you so much!Last episode of the story.

Igoumenitsa. The last sunset, the last beer before boarding!
A little bit tired and sad for the end of the trip but also happy, satisfied, proud and safe and sound! View attachment 139592
Correct. And lots of hours, rain, sun, wind... well, you already know what I'm talking about, just similar to riding a motorcycle but a bit slower😜.That's over 200km/130 miles per day.. You must really like to pedal.
Yip not bad idea as there are a lot of discussions re suspension, seats, seating position and footpegs and you clearly paid your dues on the long way round.Great trip. I would like to know more about your bike setup as I want to get my Scrambler setup for long distance rides.
Is that the BMW high seat or an aftermarket seat and was it comfortable for you?
Are the H&B panniers on C Bow racks?
Which screen is that?
Is there anything you will change on the bike after doing this epic trip?
Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman travelled from London to New York on the 1150 GSA that was as basic as the nine t and called it the "Long way round" They travelled through parts of the world that Talox is exploring. The long way down was from London to Cape Town and as far as I can remember Talox travelled a bit of Marocco as well. It would seem that in terms of long distance travel and going to out of the way places, his opinion is worth listening to. A lot of riders change from GS to nine t and their opinion is that the nine is not a long distance off the grid machine, well Talox is doing well, or would he rather go on a GSA. I am personally thinking of swopping the GSA for an Urban GS, simply because the Urban has less electronics and is a back to basics bike. The GSA, well is there a dealer in Samarkand that will allow you to plug in the bike and look for a fault? Let us know Talox.long way round ??
