[S2 – Eps. 52] This Argentinean dog BIT me!

Ah! They are biting me! This dog is biting me! Good morning internet! It is 07:55 in the morning and welcome back to the channel I am in Tilcara in Argentina And I’m going to see if the breakfast is ready But before I do that it’s a little cloudy still so hopefully today is going to be a nice day I’ll show you on the map where I am and where I am going Alright, so in the last ride I came from Salta over here and I am now in Tilcara and my plan for today is to go to Humahuaca, which is over here then take some backroads in this area and then return down here, I think somewhere over here, to Salinas Grandes Ok, so breakfast was, typical Argentinean Some toast with “dulce de leche” alright, let’s go! I think they are preparing the market at the moment So, I am at the look-out and you cannot see anything! because we are in the clouds and we are 4350 meters now and this is supposed to be a fantastic view on the 14 coloured mountain except that, well, you can’t see anything so yeah, I don’t know what else to say it’s a little bit unfortunate that I can’t absolute see nothing, because behind that hill… I think over there there is supposed to be the 14 coloured mountain with some spectacular geology, beautiful colours very interesting story but yeah… there is a cloud there so I decided not to give up just yet I’m going to walk down this route and then, let’s see if by the time I reach the other side over there, maybe, maybe the clouds have gone so, let’s see so the clouds have moved away a little bit it’s a bit of a shame because that cloud is sitting right in front of the most impressive colours so I cannot see the 14 colours although, I am not sure if it’s actually 14 colours because I’ve heard that they rebranded this mountain to 14 coloured mountain to compete with the 7 coloured mountain that I showed you in the last video Nevertheless, it’s a super beautiful place well, walking back up this hill at this altitude definitely a lot harder than going down but, they say that exercising at altitude will help you acclimatising so think bigger picture here almost there… almost there and now obviously when I’m leaving the clouds go away and the mountain becomes visible that’s just Murphy’s law, isn’t it? but it doesn’t matter, it was really nice being up there I am back in Humahuaca town And what I am going to do now is that I am going to cross the main road to the other side and then straight on a small route I don’t expect to see any traffic there on my way to Salinas Grandes So this is the road 9 that I took this morning from Tilcara and I’m going straight off it again here Oh there was supposed to be a road there which is gone I think I have to take that road see if I can find another way private area oh hello! until El Aguilar.. the road is ok? Yes! The road is ok? Yes. Yes? Ok, very good, thank you Might as well ask him for road conditions but I think until a town called El Aguilar well, I asked him, he said it was fine and then from there to Salinas Grandes I think the road is a bit bigger, so.. I assume, that it is fine so here he has been working as well see this is what happens if you get rains then this becomes a proper mess and this is the top of the pass what does it say? “Private property” Anyway, I am almost at 4000. I am at 3966 meters altitude pretty high! wow! Oh, it’s so beautiful here Incredible! And I see a few houses over there which is the first sign of civilisation, or people since Humahuaca this entire stretch.. there was absolutely nobody oh we got a small river crossing another river crossing with horses I think if there’s been a lot of rainfall here this might be a little bit tricky, but now it’s fine the track is a little bit rough at 3500 meters altitude I just have to stop for a second and just admire this view Beautiful! I count 14 colours here no need to go to the touristy 14 coloured mountain if you can ride out here, right? I almost bumped into this group of donkeys that were suddenly standing in the middle of the path and now they are going to run in front of me go to the side donkeys! Yes! Thank you! I reached the town El Aguilar and it doesn’t look like a regular town it looks like some mining town not sure what they are doing here but in any case, from here it’s another 52 kilometers to my destination of today which is about 10 kilometers away from edge of the salt flat it’s a bit of a ghost town well I already left El Aguilar and I apparently wrongly assumed that the road was going to be better from here because I figured, you know, this town needs a proper access road apparently they don’t! or at least, not a southern road because I can’t say this is a much better track but hey, maybe it will still change I came from those mountains, on the top of that pass I was at 4,000 meters and now I am almost at 4,200 meters quite high again and I think, this is the top of the pass almost they are evil! they are mean! they are biting me! this dog is biting me! oh my god I have to ride with my legs up because this dog is biting me I could see it in the eyes of those dogs that they meant business and this dog just bit me I think he got my pants or my boots so I don’t think I’m injured but he definitely hung on to my leg when he approached me I could see it.. this one means business he is going to bite me but luckily my boots are quite high and he didn’t get my leg another river crossing here is another tiny, tiny village hey horse! you are skinny.. ah these rocks indicate where the road is I think woooo, slippery.. it’s a bit muddy up here you can see it from the deep tracks it’s honestly really difficult to see where the road is I think it’s here.. yes there is a lot of runoff coming from the mountains bringing all this water and mud because the original track is not bad but there is just this layer of slick, kind of deposited on top making this a little hard I reached the town where I am going to stay tonight it’s a tiny town and I think there is only one place to stay but I made a reservation just to make sure I can stay there so I don’t have to worry about finding a place “Posada El Silencio” sounds nice and quiet hello! I have a reservation Dhanno can sit behind the gate that’s nice and I made it to my cute little room I really like it I made it here to this tiny… I don’t even know what the name is of this town but anyway just before the town I could already see the salt flat in the distance so I’m really quite close to Salinas Grandes anyway what a day! what a day! I thought it was going to be nice but I didn’t expect it to be so beautiful and so remote I mean, to be honest, right here where I am now there is no signal and also no internet so I am a little bit remote but yeah, the route to here nobody fantastic! I did get quite a scare of those dogs I already saw.. I saw it in his eyes he was evil and he was already showing his teeth when I was just riding towards the dogs I often get people telling me that I should have dog biscuits with me, which I should then throw at them or that you should stop, or speed up or whatever you need to do but I think that if I would have stopped I would also have been bitten these dogs were not messing around I think I did quite okay because in the end my pants aren’t even damaged I think he bit me .. he got the pants and I think the boot but he didn’t get through and he also didn’t rip my pants so all in all.. no damage which is good well.. first real dog attack: done! other than that what did I wanted to say now? the last 25 kilometers was really quite tricky it was so slippery and muddy but I made it! no droppings of Dhanno some of the tracks were really quite rough but I’m super proud of Dhanno she did it at high altitude as well without any problems so I’m really happy with that and that I didn’t fall or anything like that, no dropping today so that’s fantastic I’m going to make sure I charge all my stuff for the next ride where I’m going towards the Salinas Grandes I hope you liked this video if you did, please give me a big thumbs up and subscribe down below and then I’ll see you in the next video!


  • I had a micro heart attack when I saw that black&white photo of you on instagram 🙂

  • That Himalayan is the ideal bike, for sure. All the best, Pete

  • Love your videos. You did well dodging them dogs. Fantastic video and new subscriber from Michigan

  • The dog thought you were friends with Jeremy Clarkson?

  • Two stupid dogs! 😂 I love dogs but these two are mean! It's great to see your adventures again though… 😍

  • Noraly te topaste con el famoso perro garronero… Paciencia…menos mal que tenías las botas… Los caminos y los paisajes son insuperables… gracias por las imágenes

  • Hard trail to ride for your 2 days back on the road. You did it right. Glad to see you again. Cheers from France.

  • Boa viagem. Aproveite bastante.

  • Many a rider would have struggled with that drive!

  • People Sand food culture nature languages colors clothes etc.. now you are a book, we are readers

  • Damn dogs!

  • hey Noraly. just wanted to ask what drone are you useing now. keep up the good work. love escaping into another world via your adventures.

  • Boa noite minha querida que Deus abençoe sua noite 👑😍😍😍😍❤️ top matéria parabéns minha linda

  • Muito show 👍🇧🇷

  • Love the vids. Btw id love u to be my Basanti. X

  • Noraly esse pedaço de estrada foi complicado né minha rainha 👑

  • Throw the bike at them sweety, it is argentina not america. 🙂

  • 11:30 The edges of those newly packed roads may not be packed down quite well enough. Glad you got over them okay. Your skill has increased tremendously!

  • I'd have to stop & bite him back.

  • She is one tough lady

    I think Noraly is a Bionic Woman
    How so ?? Glad you ask 🙂

    1. She is very strong. Plenty of proof for that. S2E5 f.i. Or picking up Dhanno when it, uhm, she, is lying on her side.
    2. She eats whatever is custom, and never gets sick. Steel stomach, she mentioned in one of her vlogs. I think it must be stainless steel.
    3. Riding those rough tracks, her spine must be made of titanium: slim, flexible and almost indestructable. Coming to think of it, she may have an all-titanium frame
    4. When I ride for 2 or 3 hours, I am glad to get of my bike because my butt hurts.
    When Noraly drives 8 or 9 hours, she gets off as if were a trip to the Basingstoke roundabout (H2G2 reference)
    Her bottom must be made of cast iron

  • Are you Dutch ? I think we are related

  • After two grueling weeks of video viewing and zero interactions with rogue animals, I have caught up to you from India to you your present location. I believe (in my 45 years of adventure riding) That you have done a completely superb job in every aspect of a great undertaking such as this grand tour, perfect in every way! Inspired by you and William Gloege I have purchased three GoPro's and am going to try my hand at documenting my beautiful home state of Colorado (motomuttly if you're interested) with my ingrained dark sense of humor. Thank you for ALL of your hard work, it is appreciated and inspiring!

  • Nice angular unconformity!

  • never realized how blue her eyes were until she looked into the light at the beginning of the vid XD

  • Riding in the clouds

  • Hola, hermosos tus videos. No dejes de conocer Iruya, buena ruta!!!

  • Yay! for a good set of boots! (and motorcycle pants) (^_^)

  • The best sustained track challenge so far. And majestic scenery. Un Perro loco..

  • Cool vlog👍

  • Easy girl, plz. That way you'll kill daddy! Rsrs!

  • എന്റെ പൊന്നു ചേച്ചി ആ കരിക്കിലെ സൈക്കോ ഇലെ ജോർജ് നെ കൂടെ കൂട്ടാൻ മേലയിരുന്നോ, ഇങ്ങനെ വെല്ലോ സംഭവിക്കുമോ

  • Yes this dog is biting me. It's true.

  • Noraly, you made a great video. Be careful which roads that you travel !!! geo.

  • The donkeys were trying to show you an alternate route to avoid those feral dogs. Add dog-proof boots to list of necessities a world-traveller needs to include in her riding gear.

  • Never keep on riding in such a situation. Always stop on the spot. They will loose their instinct to chase and loose intrest, hence they wont bite you. I ahve also faced such instance while i was riding. So ride safe

  • So sad to see that evil dog.
    May god keep you safe and healthy.

  • Would ultrasonic repellents for dogs work? I saw some on eBay.

  • I hv faced this type dogs frequently now a days.Just slow your speed when d dogs r chasing,the dogs will be calm down instantly.

  • Loving your videos and a fan : Never camp on those or near those flat river beds, they get seasonally flooded or flash flooded from rainstorms up to 80 miles away. pick higher ground if you need to camp.

  • I'm hearing a small amount of brake squeal, can't tell if front or back but its enough for me to notice it. Ride safe Noraly x

  • You gotta kick those dogs. They are expecting kicks. That's what they want. That's why they were chasing you.

  • You are quite the explorer and adventurer Noraly. Be safe. : >)

  • What a moron. Lift your foot up, pull on the throttle – but no, stay there and whine. Got to do something for yootoob fame.

  • When I was a kid a dog bit me while riding bicycle… but it's tooth got stuck in my leg because I was wearing shorts… (long story short by the next weekend when my father got back home he ran over the dog with his motorcycle)
    Ps: only stupid dogs chase after vehicles…
    Ps n2: only stupid children pedal while passing through dogs territory.
    Best of luck itchy boots, I can't wait to see the new episodes, meanwhile I'm going to watch season 1… again

  • You seem to attract many dogs lol -Cheers!

  • Awesome video!! Thanks for posting your adventure!! Safe travels..Good luck

  • your happy face gives me motivation

  • Hopefully you'll ride past the Atacama Large Millimeter Array to the west of where you are

  • At 22:18, is that a giant petrified tree on the left side of the road?

  • Just 122k views? Girl you're awesome and such content should get atleast a million views!!

  • Noraly please will you explain your helmet camera mount arrangement to us (with those side mounted brackets). Thanks so much and keep the rubber side pointed down!

  • Hello Noraly.Nice to see you back on the road. Thank you for all your informative and truthfull videos on motor bike touring. With all your experience I believe you are the right person to ask several questions. I am an American citizen living in Thailand planning a world tour on a AfricaTwin that I would purchase in Australia. I would be registering the bike in a my Australians friends name as I can not do so.I saw on one of your videos that your bike was not registered in your name as well in India
    Question 1. Will this create problems for me in crossing borders?
    Question 2. Will I have a problem getting a Carnet in Australia if I am not a resident and the bike is registered in someone else name? Or do I have to get Carnet from my country

  • J'adore tes vidéo et l'Amérique du sud ! Merci pour ses belles images qui me font voyager!

  • Flea bitten varmint!

  • Miss N, hope you are safe and keep riding. More power to you.

  • 🌸👍🏻🤘🏻

  • 5

  • the road is bad and the dogs are shit but the views are amazing

  • The dogs were probably wild, considering the remote location. They probably saw you as a food source.

  • Wow

  • my own cattle dog would bite me every time I started the bike , he couldn't help himself the dopey barstard

  • Wonderful to see you back on the road again Noraly 😎🏍

  • nothing rattles her , what's not to love about Noraly

  • I suppose u got yourself shots of anti rabies vaccine after that. I wonder why somebody would simply let their dogs loose like that if they have a tendency to chase and bite strangers.

  • Bad dog Thank God you’re safe!

  • Hi Noraly, fantastic road! Can you please share a pic from your navigation with the route, I really want to do that road on my next trip!
    About the Dogs, you will find more of them, usually I stretch my leg ready to kick with the bottom of my boot and point to the dog, not really want to kick, but in this way you keep it far from you, it worked most of the time. Thank you!

  • Bite the dog back!

  • Thanks for a great trip.

  • Have you visit northern areas of pakistan? Gilgit Hunza Ghazar and Baltistan..Good for tourists..

  • Stop clickbait on tittle…..wtf!!!

  • Worth to watch.

  • Hi girl love to see you back ,royal enfield had their new bicycle 600 i think and all the comments were saying ,Itchy Boots,Noraly they o you big time. I don't spell good so forgive me LOL.

  • what is the name of the entrance music

  • The best way to deal with such canines is to stop and make cute/friendly noises and withing second they become your friend. ANimals are more scared of humans than humans are of them. The dog just wanted to play and prove its might to the herd.

  • i guess your riding pants and higher boots helped when the dog bit you. but wow, the colors of the area

  • I live in Peshawar, Pakistan on 13th July'2020 almost 10 to 12 dogs attacked me while i was riding my road bike (road bicycle). First one dog from side approached like the one in this video i got panicked and i pushed harder; as roads are good i manage to gain speed of 45-50 km/hr as luckily it was a flat surface rather than inclined. Believe me, one of the dogs tried various times to bit my left leg. I was on the extreme left side of the road but he compelled me to move towards right in order to save my self from his teeth. They were barking and jumping as my total focus was on the dogs that how much distance is left between me and them i accidentally crashed over divider at the speed of 48-49km/hr one of the sharp branches of the plant caused injury between my nose and right eye. I got 3 fractures in my right wrist and tore up some tissues in my right knee which still hurts. I managed to escape their attack in the dark where there was no one for at least 800-1000 meters. I don't know what would have happened if they got me, after that i had nightmares of the same place, dogs and boom crash in the end. I always woke up from my sleep as i was getting crashed into the thorny bushes.

  • Firstly, I love dogs…

    But in this situation a sharp kick in the chops really dissuades them and can be the difference between running the dog over and causing serious injury to you and it.

  • Someday I wanna be a solo rider like you, love & support fron India

  • Noraly, what an amazing stories for you to tell your grand children? 🙂

  • Dogs are bored of biting donkeys.

  • Its one hell of a ride. Real test for the rider and the motor cycle. Good that you made it safe and sound.

  • They aren't good bois 🙁 Stay safe!

  • these dogs where working dogs, you missed 2 people on horses probably near are live stock. Dogs protected livestock from predators.

  • 🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷

  • Lesson for all bikers, wear proper gears and save yourself from accidents and DOG Bites : )))

  • What a rough track. I think I would have thought twice about attempting that! Well done, good skills 🙂

  • Love this video . Wonderful tracks ,terrific views and as a bonus donkeys .👍🏻

  • Real women empowerment.

  • if you are attacked by dogs speed the engine for a while. Dogs do not like loud noises

  • I wonder if one of those personal attack alarms might help to scare a dog off.
    Small, light, easy-to-carry…

  • This is the dog very dangerous!

  • I wonder how good the Internet connection is over there. This are big videos with 2160p, after cutting the video it would take a looooong time (hours/days?) to upload where I live.

  • Get rabies vaccination as soon as possible

  • Welcome back!!!!

  • Who let d dogs out

  • I would definatly make a little detour and kick this dogs ass 🙂

  • I admire your corage riding alone through those landscapes. Please be carefull as we want you well and want to watch many more videos from you. Good luck

  • OMG u were attacked by dogs

  • I have to say it again : it's so wonderful to have you back and "ride" with you around the world !!! Take care and be safe brave Noraly !!!

  • That dog didn't know your boots are so Itchy..)
