Watching with interest
Two more Aussies riding around Europe this year (2 mates, both 34, one from Tassie, one from Qld but living in the UK) - From July to Oct, first month in Scandinavia, then Eastern Europe, down to Bulgaria, around and up the Adriatic coast and back through Slovenia and wherever. So we are keeping an eye on your trip for all the great advice! We are currently trying to organise Russian visas so we can ride via St Petersburg on our way between Finland and Estonia, which will be around early - mid August. So if you are in the vicinity then, drop me an email and we'd love to catch up.
