Passport(s)

I have my OZ passport and also a British one.
My trip to Europe next year will include most EU countries, Ukrane, Mongolia, Kazakstan and Russia and Belarus, maybe some northern countries as well.
Shipping my 1200GS over which is registered in OZ.

Which will be the best passport to use?

Regards
Mick

Why not use both? Use the Australian passport to exit Australia and the British one to enter the UK. The British one will allow travel within the EU and scandinavia without visa formalities and also visa free in some other european countries also - eg ukraine no longer requires UK passport holders to get a visa. Of the 2 passports, the british one will be the more useful. And would allow you to easily get some of the eastern european visas in London more easily.

Do as Les suggested and it will save you some visa on your Oz passport.

I have an Oz and EC passport however I generally use my EC passport around Europe. Just make sure you have both to hand in case some over efficient border control person wants to marry up a Oz passport with a Oz registered bike however you would be unlucky!!
