Arriving in Ulaan Baatar

Woke up early this morning to a fantastic view, the weather was great and it was actually warm during the night for a change. Kev didn’t wake up until 9am, think the journey is taking it’s toll on the old man 🙂 .

Today was an easy tarmac ride into Ulaan Baatar only about 150km on tarmac in great weather, biggest hazards were the herds of camels cows and goats on the roads at frequent intervals.
Straight into Ulaan Baatar and an 1 hour ride across the city to Oasis (right over the otherside of the city), traffic here is a nightmare they come at you from all angles so up along the sideways and pavments was a great option. Into the guest house and out with Kev’s sump plug while the oil’s still hot, service and repair time which took all afternoon and into the evening. The bikes have done well so far, only issues we have are the air filters getting blocked but with a clean out with petrol and some spare engine oil over them they are fine for a few days. Later we were off to the centre and an “Irish bar” (Grand Khan!) for a beer, very busy but not an Irish looking lad among them and not one strand of ginger to be seen!. Great pub though then off to a club called strings where they played live music.
