13 Aug 2014
   Ulaan Bataar to Baga Gazriin Chorin ( position N47deg 02.195 min, E 106deg 35.919min).
 We check-in and took over the bike. All bikes of same make and looked in good running condition. We hit the road almost mid-day as we took some time to exchange currency and bought some ration for the journey. All set and off we go.
 The road if there is such road, mainly semi desert empty grassland. Dead carcass and horses roam the grassland. There are fuel stations along the way especially at small villages. Beautiful day to start the ride though abit chilly (in the mid 20s degree plus mild wind it feel like 14 degree).

Near the airport 

Ulaan Bataar
Our support car 
New bikes for us too
Bikes tested correct. All smiles n ready to go..

Here we go...
Some memorial spot  
Part of the road 
      We stop frequently to check each other and for quick smoke break. The day to cover is way far to go. But we take it easy. We stop as we liked and destination is not what we are for but the ride.

Checking on each other 
Where is what? 
Double humps Camel first encounter 
First nite camping under open sky...Brrrrr temp. dropping 
Fuad's home cook dinner...
We settle for the day     

 We onle managed about 100km for the first day. Tired and cold...Tomorrow another big gruelling day.
