Disclaimer: Due to the number of comments that have been received it has been felt necessary to clarify that this trip is in no way based on "The Long Way Round" which the authors of the trip were not aware and nor was it first broadcast of at the time at which this trip was drunkenly conceived. The authors of this trip would like to distinguish their intended trip from the journey undertaken in "The Long Way Round" in that unlike Charlie Borman and Ewan McGregor they are not experienced riders (they have both only been riding motorbikes for just over one year), they are not receiving sponsorship and they will not have a support crew with them at any point on the journey. Just to avoid any further confusion it has been thought that it would be helpful to point out that Tom Horovitch and Peter Caley are both fictional characters and are not famous film stars.

Now he's beardy, now he's not...

Beardy PeterNow he's not beardy...
Tajik Pete, as he had become known with his beard, made the bold move of removing it from his face in order to cope with the desert Kazakh heat, personal hygiene issues and comments from the locals that he looks like he is from Tajikistan. It is perhaps not advantageous for him to look like he is Tajik when in Kazakhstan, but useful in three weeks when we will be in Tajikistan. Can he grow it back in time?
