So, thank you again for providing such good motorbikes who made this journey possible, completely fit for the outdoors and known from every nomads, which makes it very easy in case of a problem because the people is really curious and willing to help.As urban bikers, the experience of the offroad in this country was one of a kind. Travelling on a motorcycle is unique way to travel, especially in this nomads country where you can pretty much camp anywhere you want to.If some of you want more practical details (budget, organization, motorcycles, etc) you can send us a mail at : eliseninnin0@gmail.com

Cheke was super helpful and friendly and nothing seemed to be a problem for her. We rented a tent, cooker etc and headed off on 2 bikes. We got lost leaving UB, but oddly enough didn't get too lost when we were out in the countryside. We had a paper map and GPS, but found it more useful to use the map and just ask for directions whenever we ran into a local. I can't recommend travelling by motorcycle through Mongolia and Cheke highly enough.
