The story so far…

Well my my, hasn’t this been a challenge and a half – and the rally hasn’t started yet!
To bring our new readers up to speed, since November 2006 I’ve been preparing a Russian bike to do this rally on. Importing it, approving it, registering it, taxing, insuring etc, a total nightmare as part of http://www.mongolbyminsk.com . That all came to a rather sorry end in June when the chain snapped on the M25, taking out the gearbox, rear everything, and any hope of the bike ever working again.

With only a month to go before the rally started, I was left back at zero. Not only would the bike be different, the whole angle of the sponsorship campaign would need to be redesigned – right during my finals at University.
