Advice sought - Oz to UK - when to start?
I'm looking at taking between 9 and 12 months to travel from Perth, Western Australia to the UK, departing sometime in 2013, and I'm keen to hear any suggestions on either when to start, and/or places to avoid due to adverse weather conditions.
Rough plan is:
Thailand - to airfreight the bike over Myanmar/Burma
..... And then here I get stuck a bit as the two basic options look like:
Plan A - Pakistan, Iran, Turkey etc, or
Plan B - small corner of China, Kazakhstan, Russia etc
The probability is that I'll take my DR650, but I've been dabbling with a GSX1400/DJP sidecar the past few months and love the whole sidecar thing, so a Ural outfit isn't out of the question ..... but that's a whole other topic of conversation!
Any advice would be appreciated. I've read a fair few threads here already on the HUBB but I haven't as yet uncovered the one definitive thread that answers my questions ....
