Japan to Europe - interested in joining the adventure?

From July 2002 I`m planning a trip from Vladivostok to Europe on my DR-Z400. I take in Russia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine, and Europe. I`ve chosen countries which don`t require a carnet de passage to keep costs down. Let me know if your interested.

Hello Viktor,
I am going the same route next year. Don't have any money now! I have friends who have done the Russia to Europe route, though. And from their timetables, I would recommend you get an earlier start if possible. Since you are in Japan, I assume you or someone near you can read Japanese. So see this site from Ken and Yuko Araki. http://www.mapple.net/touring/05special/world/ They left in August, I think, and hit snow in Turkey and couldn't move for quite a while.
Patrick and Lorenz from Austria http://www.transasia.at/left Japan in June and didn't arrive back in Austria until November.
BTW, I got the 2002 Vladivostok ferry schedule today and posted it on my website. http://www2.gol.com/users/chrisl/japan/
Re. your post on "How much gear and spares", I am going to try to sent tires from Vlad to Novosibirsk (if I can find someone there to hold them for me) and change tires there.

Hey Vincent,

When I finalise my route and schedule, I'll let you know so that we can work at a possible meeting along the way. And thanks for your advice to my other questions. I haven't worked out anything with visa yet. I'll let you know how I go.

Cheers
Viktor

for russia, remember www.ryh.ru, they are relaible, good, cheap and nice
if you don't have time but money, try visatorussia.com (somethink like that, a google search), they do everything for ex-ussr
otherwise, i did my invitations with local travel agents i know in france + used lonely planet guide with the names of travel agents there (cheaper if you have time)

i'm almost done with invitations, ouf !

safe travels, maybe see you in the middle :-)

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
