Is 4 months enough for a RTrip Switzerland - Southern Asia (Silk-Road)- Russia?
I'm a rookie in here, and this is my first post in the forum.
A friend an myself are planning a RT starting from Switzerland and heading (if possible) to China through the well-known silk-road (more or less), and then return back within Mongolia, Russia and Europe. Our definitive checkpoints aren't set yet. We are more or less sketching up the things.
My friend is pretty optimistic about the feasability of such trip within 4.5 months. In my case, my first feeling was that, some 26'000 km to ride in such time constraints seems to not make such sense, for the sake of having enough time to really enjoy what every day might have to offer us.
My personal opinion would be to make it a one-way trip and fly back home. I'm a (rookie) BM rider and especially enjoy to travel slowly with no rush.
Any opinions and hints you might have would be greatly appreciated!
