Visual Summary: Irkutsk and Lake Baikal

We knew as of the middle of August we would sell our bikes. But before selling them we wanted to visit Lake Baikal. For me it was the first major goal of the trip, I had said no matter what, even if we quit afterwards, I had to see Mongolia and Baikal.  The trip is not over, but our time with Betty and Wilma is. By the end of the week we will be Honda riders, but we still stand behind our post Why BMW Rocks and Honda Sucks!  ;-P

    Why do you want to change to Honda and what model would it be?

  2. SherrieLynnMcC says:

    We are going for mini bikes! The 125cc Honda Waves! We are changing because shipping the bikes to South America would cost us more than the bikes are worth, and I have no desire to ride such a big bike in South East Asia. After searching the forums everyone that rides here long term (as in lives here as well) agreed that the Honda Wave series is what we wanted. So we pick them up tomorrow or the day after!
