Australia to Russia/mongolia to Europe
I'm currently motorcycling in Australia, but planning a 2-3 month trip from Russia/Mongolia to Europe starting around May or June 2014. I'd like to be in Western Europe by August sometime. Just spent two days riding with the "Gobi Gals" who did London to Mongolia on 110cc Chinese scooters last year, and they said it's easily done in 2 months (and they weren't going too fast!).
Alternately, if anyone wants to do Indonesia through Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, etc, I'd be easily convinced to go back to my original plan. I just wasn't comfortable doing India/Pakistan alone as a girl, but will happily do the other countries solo.
Travel buddies (guys or gals)? I don't mind doing most of the trip alone, but would like to meet people to do Mongolia, Siberia and/or Kazakhstan because it's so remote.
Other girls want to join me!? Nothing wrong with traveling with fellas, but a girl group would be pretty great, too
I've been looking into flying vs shipping the bike, and will probably just choose the cheaper option (shipping) to either Japan or South Korea, and ferrying across. It seems like buying a bike in Russia isn't a great option if I want to then get it across Europe and into the States?
Thanks in advance!
