I should be in Bishkek around the end of the month/early September... looking for a place to stay a few days and hopefully to store my bike (bicycle) a few weeks while I buy/ride a horse (still working on the plan for this).
Does Memo have an email contact? If I can't get a horse, I could hire a bike

Wesley - if we're in town around the same time, wouldn't mind meeting up for coffee/ to talk bikes (and any other bull you like) - got my eye on a DRZ400 for a future trip...

I don't think Memo is inmate here and I don't know if he is in Bishkek now.
I think gps coordinates may not be as accurate (I remember someone saying they were not).
To find his house, just go straight on Manas going north, you will have a turn right and left at one point: you will be almost arrived
Then there is a left turn you should take if I remember correctly
His house is in the short offroad section in the city center:-)


PS: just checked on google maps, should be here

I found it...or rather the navtel cheap satnav app did.
Memo is in Italy at the moment and as it is out of season I'm the only guest. A great guesthouse with everything needed being provided and much more. They now have a second guesthouse too further out in Kapakoa. The rental bikes will be going out there and five newer bikes with electric starts are planned for bishkek.Kyrgyzstan, Guesthouse in Bishkek-uploadfromtaptalk1400755848718.jpg
