was in Uzbekistan at the end of September and collected every pieces of papers with hotel stamps. And? Nobody on the border wanted to see that. Passed border between Nukus and Beyneu. I gave two passports and asked for stamp. They asked me where is second person? Answered: he is watching on a bike and car. Ok no problem I got stamps and thats it ! No question abt f... registration or so...
In Russia you dont have to register !!
Its new regulation from 1 Jan 2008. Im sure, was on a bike two times this year in Russia. Didnt register, and had no problem on border
