One suggestion: if you tug your sleeves under your Water proof gloves, it will prevent rain pushed into your inner layer.

BTownRex · September 21, 2017 at 10:24 pm

I enjoy your channel and no-nonsense attitude regarding motorcycling, very interesting and informative!

Love the exhaust sound.

Kurt Bannister · October 13, 2017 at 8:19 pm

You are lucky it happened at home instead of Mongolia!

AKHIL P B · October 18, 2017 at 8:06 pm

Such a nice thing u did to push the bike out, like a gentleman

Mohan Kumarvbm · November 2, 2017 at 6:21 pm

I am from India. i liked your presentation. Line follow-up. Many way it is like we drive.

Mohan Kumarvbm · November 2, 2017 at 6:25 pm

You have pushed the bike by saying Donot Want to disturb. Liked 👍

gtube153 · November 10, 2017 at 5:40 pm

Jealous … And it's only part 1 !

Tiago Morais · November 19, 2017 at 5:19 pm

Here has a brazilian watching your trip

GiveWay Motovlog · November 21, 2017 at 9:47 am

1. Very bassy and tractor like exhaust on idle.
2. Very kind of you to push your bike out of hotel

zerotonine807 · November 22, 2017 at 12:52 pm

Well. I am originally from Poland and i tell you, we have today better highways than in Germany here. In Germany the politics not only failed with immigration , they failed to invest in streets and education in a massive was. Poland is really worth a visit, like each other Country has its sweet spots

IRISHROVER · November 25, 2017 at 8:25 pm

Just found your channel and love it. Just what I need. 🙂
Greetings from Scotland.

IK0Nv2 · December 5, 2017 at 10:35 pm

Regards from Poland. Best feeling in the world – traveling on motorcycle.

Spanner Monkey · December 6, 2017 at 8:27 pm

Hey pavlin, just started watching this series, looks great. Glad the bike problem was just 5 minutes in, that was lucky. What Yamaha are you riding, sounds like a single pot thumper. Nice.

Spanner Monkey · December 6, 2017 at 8:42 pm

23:45 what a considerate man you are.

Darkwolf David · December 10, 2017 at 3:18 am

I would love to fire the bike and join you, but I will be with you in heart and youtube. Go with God and I wish you a safe trip(:> Davis motorcycle adventures

Ngoc Ta · December 12, 2017 at 9:03 am

Absolutely amazing video, I'm watching your vids to get back to travelling the world again, preferably on a motorbike of course.
Good luck and thank you again for your incredibly videos.

idayvueltaenmoto · December 20, 2017 at 5:53 pm

Beautiful part one!

BOB · December 22, 2017 at 11:42 pm

now this is nice , thanks and i wish i could do that

Rick Kania · December 27, 2017 at 7:15 pm

Great vid, ride safe.

Rick Kania · December 27, 2017 at 7:28 pm

20 euros ? , wow that's cheap.

J Hermans · December 29, 2017 at 9:48 am

Nice work… Same as I do.. 🙂

Arthur B · January 11, 2018 at 2:11 pm

Absolutely best trip video I have seen. No stupid music …I love it!

Palty Rides · January 11, 2018 at 6:47 pm

Great video keep the good work going

Awesomecoop 1 · January 15, 2018 at 8:01 am

Nice video

Daahir · January 18, 2018 at 3:36 am

He pushed the bike all the way out just to not disturb occupants of the hotel. We, noisy Indians, should learn few things from it. We, in India, have people who change their silencer to make it extra loud. And bad thing is that they consider it cool.

Opinion Pole · January 21, 2018 at 3:12 pm

Wow. The toll collector woman knew you didn't speak Polish and she still dressed you very polite.

Treemander · January 22, 2018 at 4:37 pm

Much better this way, no music and a lot of explanation…great job, really enjoy that!!!

Jerzy Lach · January 28, 2018 at 10:38 am

Swietna relacja, oglądam dalej ]] Pozdrawiam.

Stan vA · February 1, 2018 at 7:37 am

Great vid. Coffee, breakfast and this video. Perfect start of the day. Cheers from The Netherlands.

Simon Tarrant · February 9, 2018 at 9:00 pm

Finally a video without the stupid rave music. Awesome, really enjoying it so far 🙂

Matthew Clifford · February 16, 2018 at 6:10 pm

Is this what you do for a living? may seem like a stupid question with how long your trips are yet I am asking. Next question, why such a low horsepower bike?

MsnTX · February 17, 2018 at 9:30 pm

Once again, great work, Pavlin! Is lane splitting legal in Europe? I am living in Germany and I thought that it was not legal. Or do the drivers just understand and tolerate it?

JUNGDAE PARK · February 26, 2018 at 5:50 am

멋진 여행이십니다. 그 용기에 경의를 표합니다.

ade priyanto · March 11, 2018 at 3:49 pm

my biggest dream is to travel the world on motorcycle with my wife. i still don't have a wife, money and a proper motorcycle though. i hope it will happen soon.

Danson Saldanha · March 17, 2018 at 5:08 pm

I love how you did not wake anyone up in the hotel the next morning. You won't get to see them again, they won't see you again, but you still were considerate.

Stephen Miller · March 17, 2018 at 7:58 pm

Hi from Scotland, yes travel light is best and take your credit card you can buy anything on route ! !

Dainius Tirunas · March 20, 2018 at 10:06 pm

Your videos are super! Good job.

Yassir Belarabi · March 22, 2018 at 9:41 am

I really like your videos.. you are giving me lot of inspiration and "what to expect" Bravo !

Kathrin Waldapfel · March 23, 2018 at 12:46 pm

Hallo Motorradfreunde
Ich war letztes Jahr in Polen und bin dort mit meiner Frau (Selbstfahrerin ) 2000 Kilometer gefahren . Tolle Ostseeküste und Super Natur in den Masuren.
Meine längste Tour war von Hamburg nach Spanien.
Grüße aus Hamburg

michal s · March 26, 2018 at 3:53 pm

First thing to begin with is divorce haha then I can do traveling…

Patrick S · March 27, 2018 at 2:35 pm

Really really nice video! I love the raw audio, this way you experience more of the trip itself. keep on going and ride safe !!

organicbiscuitdip · March 30, 2018 at 3:43 am

you don't drink much alcohol when you travel. I find it hard not to sit and have a few beers at the end of the day. But this actually makes you more tired in the long run.

Blackrainbow · March 30, 2018 at 7:45 am

What was the name of that nice hotel in Poland?

Delber Arzuza · April 1, 2018 at 10:50 am

Thank for sharing, Saludos desde Colombia

Kári Gunnlaugsson · April 7, 2018 at 11:00 am

Great. Thanks.

Jay Lilantha · April 25, 2018 at 9:59 am

it would be great if you can show your gear one by one and how you pack them up

Matt Ventures · April 25, 2018 at 4:00 pm

Interesting ride. I'm heading to Mongolia myself in June 2018, good tfollow your trip in preparation.

kanishk dahiya · April 30, 2018 at 2:08 am

This is one of the best series on the internet when comes to riding through Mongolia and Russia. I actually went to google earth after watching all 26 parts in a single day and tried to comprehend the immense distance you guys covered together. I guess it will take a lot of words to describe my experience, so be it.

I have been traveling in the Himalayas for some time now and crossing them and heading into Tibet/ Mongolia would be the next step for me. The way you have shared your experience and made the effort to provide this footage is priceless. I never knew that I will be able to get a first hand experience of such far away places just once click away on YouTube. Also, the choice of not adding any music adds to the taste of this series and brings the viewers closer to the true nature of the experience you had.

Dima seems like a guy who tries focusing more on riding rather than capturing it on the camera and you even mentioned that yourself while in Mongolia. That reminded me of one trip I had in which the guy I was travelling with had totally different ideas and I ended up having a fight and which sent us on different ways in middle of nowhere. Watching you to work together has been a learning and rewarding experience for me. That being said, it was a sad moment during the end of the trip watching you two going separate ways.

I never knew Russia is such a beautiful country especially the Altai Mountains. I think that this has opened new ideas in my head about cross country travel.

I own a 400CC Indian made dual sport motorcycle called the Royal-Enfield Himalayan (Cliched!). One can buy 12 Himalayans for one 1200GS in my country. When I saw the Tenere on your channel (This was the first time I was looking at this machine) I became and instant fan. Look at it this way: In my country when I go around the mountains people as me "how much CC is your bike?" I say 400 and they are like they have seen a really big motorcycle as we generally have max 200 cc bikes here. Watching you say that 650 is a small bike, I laughed my lungs out. I tell you sir (as you already know it yourself) You have the perfect bike and IF I ever had a chance yo get one I will not step back.

I wish to host you once you are here in India and show your around my country. It will be a great pleasure and to be a part of your blog will be a greater pleasure. Its a big world but what unites us is the passion for motorcycle and to travel and as you said yourself "The world will be a much better place if we help, instead of hate each other!".

Much support from New Delhi

How lucky. You do so many mile all over the world and yet you break down 5 mins from home. Someone is looking over you.

Zuzia Krupa · May 8, 2018 at 7:31 pm

WoW what a polite man 23:44…all what i want to say is (in my opinion as a polish) you CANT expect such behavior from pole…sad thing, wish i will make my own trip and behive the same, good luck!

Arun Smoke · May 14, 2018 at 6:02 pm

awesome vedio.

Gary West · May 19, 2018 at 7:27 am

Raphael Saavedra · June 1, 2018 at 5:31 pm

Wish I could travel like you.

Xeniks0 · June 12, 2018 at 3:26 am

Hi, I'm your new FAN. I've for a question? I live in the USA and they don't sell the Yamaha 660 here. What do you think about Kawasaki 650 KLR? It's carbureted and it's cheap, it's just around $6700 a brand new. Very similar to your Yamaha I think.

Michał · June 18, 2018 at 8:44 pm

What a shame that You didn't checked the Warsaw. There are many nice places around to visit. Good video and nice commentary. Keep it up 🙂

Rimas Plioplys · June 22, 2018 at 12:06 pm

i had similar problem with main fuse on my old Tenere 95'. Finally i found that one of the wires inside ignition lock touching aluminium lock housing causing short cirquit

Alex Rybin · July 2, 2018 at 3:04 pm

I enjoy watching your videos. Very interesting. Your bikes have text rental on your Steering Bar. Is your bike rental?

Mehmet Seyhan · July 9, 2018 at 5:12 pm

Hello. Thank you for all your great videos. I want to ask something. I'm riding a 300 cc bike for a year now. Because the bike doesnt look cheap all big bikers greeting me with peace sign. I want actually greet in the same way but I dont want to let the handle bar I guess because I'm still beginner. So I greet with my head, back to them even they make peace sign. Do you think they consider me as un-polite or is that ok?

Doka Saku · July 30, 2018 at 10:29 am

where is Mongolia, you bloody bastards

Michael Kurz · August 26, 2018 at 9:16 pm

Wow a subway good deal

Michael Kurz · August 26, 2018 at 9:20 pm

Here in the U.S riding between vehicles not good

Paul Goras · September 6, 2018 at 9:45 pm

Where can I buy a GPS holder like yours?

observe conquer · September 13, 2018 at 5:18 am

What bike is that?

Bogdan Pivoda · October 6, 2018 at 10:02 am

I like your videos à lot and your English it’s very good,instead your accent !
I’m from Romania, we are neighbors!
I have un accent too in English of course 👍

mike mike · November 6, 2018 at 9:23 am

you are the only one riding a motorcycle on the highway?

Robson Enduro · November 16, 2018 at 2:23 pm

10 euros for 100 km…outrages prices, how much would pay a truck then? I'd rather ride off-road.

Murray Dupley · November 20, 2018 at 5:26 am

We don't have lane splitting here. Do you find that alot of cars don't like you to be able to do that? find drivers leaning into you or giving way?

TheMotorman · November 20, 2018 at 12:09 pm

Are bikes available on rent in Berlin for a customized motorcycle tour across Europe?

Anes Pitrio · November 22, 2018 at 7:50 pm

Thank you from Berlin. I've always wondered what Mongolia really looks like. Job well done!

Radiosonde hunter · November 24, 2018 at 9:15 am

Good Video and good trip congratulations !

Andrey X · November 25, 2018 at 11:13 pm

First payments its 37 polish złoty its + – 6,50 € not 10 € , and because you pay in 10 Euro you have 40 polish złoty back .
Allso next time watch out and watch to speed limit 😉 60 km/h you drive 89 km/h . If POLICE stop you and you not living in Poland You have to pay speed ticket the right thing .

abadi alebbi · December 8, 2018 at 5:29 pm

starting your bike away from the hotel is a class act it shows what you are made of.

Guy Morell · December 11, 2018 at 4:13 am

Thank you for all your info i will be in Poland in 2 weeks and have ridden motorcycle's all across USA dirt and street i will try it there … Thanks again

Crazytrain · December 28, 2018 at 4:02 pm

What you think about the bike is it good enough for such a big ride ? I think its rly hard to find a proper bike for long rides with no issues or electric problems..

Tamseel Shahzad · December 29, 2018 at 11:36 am

Nice. Really very cool stay.

Orzel Bialy · January 12, 2019 at 1:45 am

Very nice video !

Charlie Ramone's Backing Tracks · February 4, 2019 at 5:48 pm

Hi Pavlin! … In Colombia motorcycles do not have to pay for the use of the roads, only cars, buses and trucks pay

Dhilip De Alwis · February 11, 2019 at 11:07 am

All the very best to you…

Michal lapczyk · March 16, 2019 at 6:36 pm

37 Poland złoty equals

8.59 Euro

olaf jensen · September 7, 2019 at 6:41 pm

Yeah I was in BAOR when the wall come down. The big difference is you now got a motorway. When I went from Osnabruck to Franfurst an der order The motorway was broken concrete slabs. The rest areas were muddy laybys/ Come on you old enough so tell the truth,

olaf jensen · September 28, 2019 at 2:39 pm
