Desert in Iran. A chance encounter with a camel…or is it a dromedary? Not sure.

Babusart Pass, on the Karakoram Highway to the border between Pakistan and China. The highest pass in Pakistan.

View of the Caucasus in Georgia, just south of Russia. A fantastic place full of enjoyable white top tracks, perfect for a dual sport bike like the f800.

This one was shot in the Nubra Valley in Ladakh, northern India.
I remember the splitting head ache I had that day due to altitude issues at over 4000m. Took this one in September of 2016.
