That sounds like an amazing trip. I'm watching Ewan McGregor's mini-series "Round the world" where he and a friend ride across the same basic route, though they end up going around the world from London. Except they're on BMW's. Its pretty interesting. I'm about to go turn on the episode (on DVD) where they start hitting Siberia.
Those look like some amazing photos. I take it, none of these were planned meetings with people? Looks like a great adventure.
