Hi from Samarkand, Uzbekistan!
Kazakhstan posts are under process and hopefully will be published in coming days (I have had some issues to find internet connection).
In any case, now I am in really hot Samarkand. Crossed border between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan yesterday.
This border was quite slow and took me 4-5 hours to get through.
After crossing the border I broke my #2 and #3 rules… Only number #3 bite back (but this will be clarified in the bigger update ;)).
Today I have been fixing damages in the bike and did valve clearance check.
During check, I noticed that 2 threads from the cylinders (threads for valve cover screws) have been almost completely destroyed in BMW service… Did not check these before I left… Now I need to try to find helicoils from somewhere so that those could be fixed.
So, bare with me and my slow blog updates. Lot of photos are coming.
