Now this post will get interesting 🙂
I packed up the bike and said goodbye to Laura again. Headed off to Bishkek roads were great up until the pass I was warned might be icy, it was fine heading u the pass then I hit the ice. I came off the first time and got the bike back up the 2nd time I got my foot between the panniers and the ice. I was then fortunate enough truck stopped and offered me a lift to Bishkek which I am glad I accepted as there was 150kms of ice. They drove me all the way to Bishkek where Hassan came and met me and I rode to the hostel. On trying to get my boot off I realised my foot was a lot more hurt than I expected. I spent the night in the hostel and decided to get foot check out at the hospital the next day.
Nothing was broken just badly bruised, they did put me in a cast to be sure.As I couldn’t ride for a week Hassan offered to tow the bike so we found a russian guy through Ironhorse who fabricated a tow hitch in a day and we had the bike on the back of the 4wd to cross through into China.
We picked up the 4wd and bike and starting making our way to the border
