Vladivostok - Europe - We like to have infos

Dear travellers

has somebody of you informations about travelling with motorbikes from Vladivostok to europe?

We have to be in Germany in the beginning of July 2007, but we don't want to fly home from New Zealand.

But we think, the time is a little bit short to do the whole trip, so we thiunk about flying our bikes to russia, a little bit closer to europe and then drive home.

Greetings from Lahore in Pakistan

Hi there!

I was driving in 2004 from switzerland to vladivostok, and it was just great. If you have to be in germany in july, you should start about two months before in vladivostok. But in may the weather is afaik quite unpredictable... Feel free to contact me on my e-mail adress (in german :-)!

Cheers

Marco

Hi Ralf and Eva,

Last summer I rode from Vladivostok to Germany. I spent 28 days in Russia, 21 of them actually riding, covering just over 6900 miles. I've posted a day by day journal of the Russian portion of the trip on my website www.rtwrider.net and you might find some useful information there.

Hope this helps.

Mike
