Smile Kent to Tashkent 2012

I am departing July on 8 week 8000 mile trip thru Balkans, via Turkey and Azerbaijan to Baku and then across Caspian Sea to Turkmenistan following part of the Silk Road to Tashkent. From there back thru Kazakhstan, Russia, Ukraine and Eastern Europe. Part camping and part modest hotels. My broad weekly plan is to ride 250 miles per day for 4 days with 3 days for sightseeing. Interested in joining me for whole or part of trip ??

Dayne,
I have planned 21 sightseeing days during the trip. These are not fixed in stone but just a general guide.
Let me know if you are interested.

Yes Jim about the same time, will drop you a PM with a planned route we have [ish].
It willl take me approx 4 good riding weeks to get to Bishkek, with not much sight seeing, 8 weeks maybe to short.
Have you looked about the ferry Baku?? you could be there a few days waiting for the ferry

@jim - yes I'm interested for sure, is there a reason you only have 8 weeks? I'm lucky being self employed.

@eric - could you pm about your plans also please?
Cheers
