be careful to register in Uzbekistan within 3 days (72 hours) in a hotel and get the sticker as proof. Also dont stay unregisterd for more than 3 days in the country. It happened to me that I got trouble with the police because I was staying at friends and families who invited me to stay without these registrations. There are ways around it, like asking a small cheap hotel to give you registrations you missed for quite some dollars, and telling the police you were sleeping outside, etc., which seemed to work for me now. Leaving the country the landway they might not be interested too much in the registrations, but if you are unlucky and you get a hard bloke, he might send you back to Tashkent to sort it out. But if you can, try to avoid to be send to the main register office by a big hotel or the cops, but try with small hotels. Once they know about your case, trouble seems unavoidable. Usually you find helpful people everywhere who translate for you or even negotiate the bribe if nothing else helps. Tashkent center is banned for motorcycles, but the cops let you usually through if you are a tourist and say you have hotel booked in the center. Cops on the road, and there are many in the country, are not so much the problem, as long you are friendly and if you have your basic papers right, like everywhere. Not so much in the big cities but everywhere else usually they give a handshake with the left hand on the chest. Do the same, its a good sign and play time, they might let you go even you speeded a bit too much since they can only do one at a time. Otherwise 5 dollar might be enough to get you around an official cation, which is much higher, if you really did something wrong.
Otherwise, great country to ride, specially between the big cities.
Have a good ride, Thomas
We came in from Kasakstan in july, and all the petrolstations in that area (Aral and south to Nukus) were closed. We thought it was a local problem, but was told its like that almost all the way to Tashkent. With two bikes out of fuel we had a few worries there for som time, but we managed to get 40 l for about 50 dollars that took us fither and out to Turkmenistan.

If you read the post before!
Sorry, I did a mistake: 3 days are of cause 72 hours, not 36, as I wrote before. In the hotels and at the police they talked always about 3 days/36hours, thats where the confusion came from in the first post.
