Our New Greece number till 13 November 2006 is +30 697 416 3848.
We are now in Rhodes Island, Greece working our way towards Crete and then Athens to find a place to store the bike for 16 months.
Our Turkey number is no longer working. The Government have bought in a new law that all mobile phones have to be registered in Turkey and to do that you have to have the receipt of purchase, which of course, we havent kept in our back pocket for the last 4 years since we bought the phone!! So you need to send sms only to our Aussie number +61 419 309 309 till we get to Greece.
Also, for other bikers travelling in Turkey the speed limit for all motorbikes is 70km/hour. Today we got clocked by radar doing 92km/hour on a major highway and got a 206 Turkish Lira Fine (A$200). Cars are OK at 100km/hour, so its dangerous for us to go this rediculous speed, but they have radars and you cant argue with the law, dont worry we tried for 2 hours!!
Other than that life is great cruising the West coast of Turkey, staying in small beachside villages and travelling about 60km/day. The food is great, accommodation is great and cheap, bike parking is readily available and the water is warm for swimming. The average daily temperature is 32 deg C and the roads are in really good condition.Posted by Patrick Peck at September 06, 2006 04:51 PM GMT
