I met him 2 days ago near Chilchi, but as I'm not familiar with motorbikes, he first had to explain, what it is, a big bike.
I'm not sure if he couldn't have avoided some river crossings, there are now new ones, the people in Chani told me that the week-long rain had taken out more bridges between Chani and Oljokma. But on a motorbike and a bicycle you can go along the railway, what I then did. btw, it is really more interesting in terms of landscape (trees are cut away, so there is more sight and you are on a dam), mosquitos and meeting people (railway workers are quite frequent, but from the nearby road you often don't see them).
As I told, there was a long rain period, I was lucky and as of Kuanda had only sun and the rivers were already significantly lower (vitim was still frightening, and the Chani and Oljokma must have been incredibly high when you looked at the flood marks), there must have been a grup of baltic drivers, that was a week before me, they also used partially the road along the railway, but had probably wetter conditions.
2 Jeeps were waiting at Ojokma river bridge for a permission to cross. But usually jeeps should be taken on a plattform from Chani to Juktali, I still haven't seen them overtaking me.
