I’m toying with the idea of a trip down to Asia Minor “Turkey” later on in the year anybody interested.
Anybody done it and has any advice to offer. Previous trip have taken me to Ireland, Morocco and NordKapp.
I've just been through Turkey, across Georgia and Azerbaijan then across the stans into Siberia. I went on my own, everyone was very very friendly, cops stopped me but just to chat or buy me food (Ok, the free lunch only came twice) on a Cagiva Elefant. It was a piece of cake until my valve clearances went 'beyond acceptable limits'. Would love to do it again, but am unfortunately now stony broke.....
Thanks for taking the time to reply, very brave using a Cagiva Elefant but what a trip. I prefer the Africa twin myself but when the devil drives you go with the flow. I checked out your web site, nice to see UNICEF benefacting from your adventures.
I'll drop you an email for some more details on the route etc. etc.
I'm planning a solo trip to Turkey from July 27 - August 20. I'm going from Barcelona (Spain) to Cesme by ferry (via Italy). I would be glad to contact or meet other travellers/residents during my stay to interchange experiences and have a drink.
This will be my second time in Turkey. In the first one, in 1992 I was in Istambul (no bike then). I enjoyed it a lot.
I haven't decided my itinerary yet. I'm working on this and I'm open to any suggestions :-)
Thank you for your offer. You are right: my nick indicates my age :-) . Since Izmir is very close to Cesme, it is very likely that I will stop in Izmir. I will be very glad to share some s with you. We will keep in touch.
You don't mention the route? Where will you be coming from? After Turkey going where?
Can be sure you'll like and enjoy Türkiye too much. People are nice, friendly and helpful here.
Where in Türkiye? To me :
1. Definitely you must see Istanbul
2. If you have time Gallipoli. Then you can pass from Bursa.
3. Cappadoccia area (I am very close)
4. Eastern Turkey (around Van) (if you have time)
5. If you are fond of nature and mountains Eastern Black Sea Coasts (Rize, Ayder, Trabzon, Macka, etc)
Sorry guys but the number "65" in my case does not indicate my age but the year of birth. Anyway, you will be welcomed by this young Ionian when you are in Turkey. I can send you possible best motorcycling routes if you ask me to.
I will send you my contact info with PM soon.
Hoping to meet you sometime somewhere in August. Until then, don't hesitate to contact me for anything related to your plans in Asia Minor.
I'm not going to Istambul this time. I have been there and it is easy to go there by plane at any time.
Can, if you are in Izmir the 28/29, we can meet there. I can not send PM (few posts). Is it possible for you to send a PM or an e-mail to me? I would like to ask you some questions that can be somewhat off-topic in this thread.
Brett & Dave: Hope that our routes cross somewhere.
