Day 6: Heading to Dingri

We're riding to Dingri/Tingri today, for the next jump for Mt Everest and basecamp. The city has several names due to the chinese, tibetan and western naming conventions. We are supposed to be crossing the highest elevation today at 17,570 ft. I've been told the BMW R1150GS I'm riding conks out at 17,000ft due to not enough oxygen in the burn mixture. Wonder what that means for the humans.
