EU - Iran - Stans - Mongolia - May 2014 - Who?

Hi,

I am Planning a trip to Mongolia for 2014.

Route: Delft - Italy - Turkey - Iran - Turkmenistan - Uzbekistan - Kyrgyzstan - Kazakhstan - Mongolia - maybe back with bike on Trans Siberia Express to Moscow - Delft

Surely interested in info on countries, routes, visa, interesting places, where to eat & sleep - bike transport (by Trans Siberia Express or other) - best period of traveling (Mongolia seems critical - river passing / snow) - how much time it will take etc.

I think it is not a very good idea to travel alone through Mongolia and maybe Turkmenistan? thus looking for companion.

Currently drive a '91BMWK75RT - Planning to get a Tenere xt660z for this trip.

Looking forward sharing - info - plans - thoughts - the road.

Leo
Delft
The Netherlands
