HELP needed in Aktobe...urgent

Hi guys, we have problems to one of the three Bmw Gs1200 of our group
Yesterday we were in Aralsk and we saw the bike pissing oil from the final transmission (we suppose it's the seal of the bevel gear or the seal of the gearbox). We put it on a truck to Aktobe, we don't want to risk to lose all oil and brake it.
Two of us are just arrived here in Aktobe yesterday night, now we are waiting for our friend on the truck.
We need informations about any place here where we can fix the bike as soon as possible because we have problems of expiring russian visas...we need to run.

Hi m8

There is a bikers club there who should be able to help. The chap to speak to is Gennardi, he has business in town. I am just trying to get some contact details from his daughter and will either pass them via here or through a pm. Accommodation is not cheap in that town, but if you go here, this place is not that expensive, has wifi in the cafe and serves nice tucker on the rood top bar

Its called the Zhelken Hotel N50 18.600 E57 09.182

Secure parking is here as well

Good luck and Ill try and get back to you soon when I get further details

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
