Bad roads in Kazakhstan - this is their equivalent of the A1 - and reports that the first 400km of road in Uzbekistan are even worse. Some people say the road is very bad, others say there is no road at all. I'm riding with the other bikers from the ferry for a few days and progress is slow - we're limited to the speed Gregorio, the Spanish rider, can do. He's riding to Mongolia on a street bike with road tyres.

Random Kazakhstan Fact: Kazakhstan is the world's 9th largest country, roughly the size of western europe.
