same here met some great people and really enjoyed on what the next day was going to bring, can't wait to go again but alas there is no money . If i sell my house in time i'll be there, it's on the market so just see what happens.
I'm planning a similar trip around that time, my bike is currently in Anchorage so i'm looking into my shipping options to get it to Vladivostock around april/may as well. I might ride it down to WA in the spring and ship from there. Im wanting to do Russia, Mongolia, Kazakstan, chernobyl in Ukraine, and Auschwitz in Poland and end up around the UK area. Would be fun to ride with someone a bit!
Hi Calvin, seems everyone wants to go through Mongolia.
I will stay in Russia. The roads in Russia are bad enough, I don't know if they even have roads in Mongolia.
I can almost speak Russian now, and I kind of know them enough that they hardly seem like foreigners to me anymore.
But keep in touch. Maybe after you have battled your way through the sand and come out the other side of Kazakstan we could meet up again.
I think Kazakstan is Ok for roads ... But I don't know for sure.
But I do know one thing. Its so good in Russia I didn't want to leave !
For some reason I don't get notification from this site, otherwise I would have messaged you earlier.
