I did that road few weeks ago riding solo. It´s not that bad, just a little bit of holes, stones and hot and no where to rest. Truck drivers will help. But the real problems start 100 km to Aral when you think is almost done. There is nothing else but sand. In Aral there is just one hotel (really expensive, about 4000 tenges) and no shower. But you can have shower in the pool at the end of the street, do not pay for it more than 200.
From Aral to east, everything gets better. In Turkistan there is affordable hotel beside the big Mosque. Enjoy the hell.
Not sure if you are heading this way, but Annie and I are currently in Kazakhstan - in and around Shimkent and then will be in Almaty Tuesday evening onwards collecting visas and doing work on my bike for a few days.
So if you're around and want to meet up for a , let me know.
I'll probably be around the town tomorrow and will start moving north for the next week to Barnaul. SMS +1 310 279 7585 if you'd like to meet on the road... I'm riding solo and would enjoy company for a change.
Hiya guys, I'm now heading to Mongolia as well. It was my original plan but I decided against it a month ago (even gave away a map I got sent to me from england).
My Russian visa expires on the 30th so I'm gonna head to Mongolia and pick up a new Russian visa in UB. Should be riding with a pillion as well. Depending on how things go may try and buy a cheap russian 2-stroke after entering Mongolia for Eva to ride on and then sell it hopefully for the same price in UB. Never rode a bike before a week or so a go, but she did well riding the DR (very high seat, slippery knobbly tyres and tricky kickstart) so I reckon it'll be the most fun way to cross Mongolia.
Was hoping to catch you up Erdem, so let us know where you and and at what pace you're travelling at. Same for you Tiffany.
I was hoping to attend your presentation almost a year ago in California when I was dreaming of my own Journey... I would LOVE to meet you here in UB if you are around still... Did you leave yet? I hope I didn't miss you... If not, please SMS +13102797585
