Post 2015 - Heading east from Europe, add your itinerary / plans

Update I'm off on my trip now so not going to updating the first post anymore. I hope this thread has been of use to some people. See you on the road.



This is a centralised thread listing rout information and rough itineraries for everyone heading east out of Europe in 2015.

Should make it easier for people to meet up, offer advice and get help.

I will aim to keep the first post updated with peoples rough route and departure date. If you are heading east in 2015 post below and I will add you to the list.

Please use the following format.

great thread

I am planning riding my v strom 650 back to nz in 2015 , beginning late April early May.

Route is probably through Iran, Pakistan, india, nepal then airfreight to thailand. But open to suggestions.

Would be happy to join with riders. I am a 64 year old kiwi and have done solo in Morocco, turkey, europe for consecutive three month tours. Heading for central America next month for three month "small" bike tour.

Happy to meet up when I return to or in my travels in Europe next year.

eastbound from belgium

Current plan is to make a 3 month trip going from belgium to mongolia and back.

Timing: departure june/july 2015. Upon arrival in mongolia I would park the bike, go to china by train. Returning to mongolia after one month (china visum expires), then return through Siberia to Belgium.

Bikes: Suzuki DR 350, in the process of refurbishing...

purpose: travel offroad where feasible. ie limit asfalt to the bare minimum.
route: through ukraine, russia, kazakhstan and russia to mongolia.

maybe my son will come along (24 yr, on a dr350) and myself (54 yr, dr350)
Both having moderate off-road experience.
