First of all,a big hello from İstanbul..Already have some marvellous friends there.
I have almost completed cooperation with government officials for the 100.anniversary of Anzac day at Gelibolu..So probably we will be there by our bikes and will be hosted by 18.March.University.Details will follow here after the elections here during the following 2 years..
For now,1 important tip for your planning.Gas is most expensive here.Almost 2 euros now.So a good route will be better for you.
Will do this and donate you with good information after ı get answers for the questions in my mind.
1-Did you plan how and where to clear customs and complete paperwork.
2-For a route planning,what are your hobbies,likes,dislikes,which places are in your mind to visit after Gelibolu.(Most preferred areas for bikers are pamukkale,ephesus,kaş,antalya,cappadocia,stone road,dark canyon,zigana pass,mount nemrut,kangal's doctor fishes,göbeklitepe,lake van,noah's ark,etc..)
3-Your bike details.
Will be pleased to do my best friendly.Same as ı do,facebook is widely preferred in my country and things may change so fast in middle east which always affects Turkey negatively.
If you may be interested,many Aus.friends have done the same trip and some are still on the way to Aus.I have worldwide friendships which continue after the ends of the trips..
Lets keep in touch.Wish you and friends all the best.
