There are also virtually no facilities for motorcycle tyres & oils in Kazakhstan (actually moto shops are few and far between everywhere beyond Hungary) hence for overlanders crossing Kazakhstan and Mongolia it is essential that riders are self sufficient, (and / or have access to servicing, repairs, spare parts and tyre changing facilities) Our 4x4 support vehicle carries spare tyres, chains, oils, water, spare fuel, tyres & tubes.

Bikes
We recommend the Yamaha 660 Tenere for all expeditions (nothing heavier for Mongolia!)
Other similar bikes, ie KTM, BMW GS etc are all good for Kazakhstan and china stages.

Adventure motorcycling should be adventurous with an element of risk. Otherwise we'd all drive cars to the office & stay at home. We have all chosen to accept a certain degree of risk in our quest to expand our horizons and explore the world, beyond the norm of usual western expectations. We do of course take every possible precaution to limited our expose to un-necessary risks. By choosing to travel certain stages with a group of fellow riders, we can all assist each other to maintain a good balance to our adventures.
