XR400 Offroad UK - Turkey?

Hi,
My friend and I are planning to ride our XR400s from Scotland to Istanbul and then on to Eastern Turkey at the end of the summer. We want to do as much as possible offroad but we anticipate that this might be quite difficult (Farmers, fences, police etc).

We are getting the ferry direct from Edinburgh to Zeebrugge in Belgium. After that there is no particular plan. Does anyone have any ideas about possible routes accross Europe with as much off tarmac as possible?

Keen to do anything from wide fast trails to tight technical paths. We are going packed light and wild camping all the time anyway so that is not a problem.

Cheers in advance for any help and suggestions!!

Andy
