Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan Oct/Nov 2008

Hi,

I will be in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan in Oct/Nov 2008. Just wondering if there are any other bikers in that region during this period. Would be happy to meet up.

Cheers.

Both taken late October in Southern Kazakhstan - temp ranging from -10 at night to +2/3 in the day in the plains ...

As for going into the mountains of Kyrgyzstan then??? - Ballsy!!!

We'll be there

Hi

We (my wife and I) are hoping to be there around the same time. We are travelling in a 4x4 though, not bikes.

We're hoping to cross the Pamir, depending on weather!!

Let us know if you want to meet up maybe...

Cheers
