Riders Wanted. Turkey to Mongolia. Aug 08
My neighbour and I will be riding from Turkey to Mongolia over six weeks, from 10th August to 20th September 2008. For work reasons we are locked into this general time line. We would like to find two (or so) other adventurous souls to join us.
We are middle aged Canadians (I'm 52) with some biking expirience. I've done Africa and Glen... well he is a great rider. We will be riding dual sport bikes (650 & 450) and plan on taking the road less traveled, probably averaging about 300 km / day. We start in Istanbul, pass through Georgia, Azerbaijhan, the 4 Stans, southern Siberia (Russia) and then on to Ulaanbaatr in Mongolia.
Where practical we will stay in local hotels / hostels & yurts. But we do expect to spend a couple of nights out, particularly in Mongolia. The trip should be laid back with most of the riding being done in the mornings / early afternoon.
If interested let me know and I'll send you an itinerary.
