My Mongolian bike

Today I finally got the two accessories I wanted the most for my bike. The first one I have wanted it ever since I got my first scooter back in 2006, a sound system. It turns out that it’s a very popular accessory here in Mongolia so it was very easy to get a couple of 10W speakers that connect to the battery and can read SD cards.

The second one is something I have lusted for ever since I entered Xinjiang and saw that everyone had beautiful saddle covers for their bikes. They also have them here in Mongolia and today I finally found a couple of shops that sold them in the black market of Ulan Baatar. I and another rider I met here (Léo from vamosprimo.tumblr.com) bought one each, a bit unsure if they would fit my Tenere and his Africa Twin. They did. I’m so happy! Incidentally, now my bike is properly Mongolian with the speakers and the rug 😉

    1. El pibe hace malabares y me contó que en una frontera el aduanero le dijo: “Hacé malabares” y el contestó “Ok, pero no me revisás la moto”. Y funcionó.

  1. Wasn´t it better to use some bluetooth heatset or anything simillar inside the helmet? I mean, how do you hear when riding if there´s the engine, the amazing autobahs you are finding in your way and everything with your helmet on….
