Eastern Europe Ukraine/Bulgaria poss Belarus July or August this year

Hi, I'm planning on spending 3 weeks in either July/August this year heading off to Ukraine/Bulgaria/Romania/flexible. I'd be interested in doing Belarus once I've investigated the visa issues.....
I've got a 1200GS and I've done a lot of Europe trips in the past. I'm planning on staying in budget hotels with the odd bit of luxury thrown in whenever I feel the need.
Mileage wise I'd like to to a couple of long days (500/600 miles) to get into the countries of choice asap, after that I'm flexible. I'm not much of a tourist but I'd be keen to visit some of the more recent historical sites, perhaps Chernobyl and the like for instance. I've done the Tranfargarasan Highway (last year) but would be happy to do it again.
I've not given much thought to a route as yet apart from getting of the train/ferry in Calais (I live in Bromley, Kent)
On the homeleg I'm thinking about the ferry from Igoumenitsa (Spelling, Greece!) to Venice to break up the journey a little!

Looking for advice & to talk to anyone interested in either joining me or meeting up on the road.

Thanks for reading,

A big boy did it and ran away.

Hi JC,
I'm planning a similar trip. Middle of July I'm heading to Hungary, to visit friends and relatives, than going to Romania, Bulgaria and Greece. On the way back I'm planning to take the ferry from Igoumenitsa to Brindisi.
