Well, I made it to far eastern Turkey before a stupid accident scuppered my plans. Preparing to fly home with a smashed up bike. Plan to fly to India in a few weeks and rent a bike to ride Srinagar, Leh, Manali and, of course, Khardungla.

I'm fine thanks Wildman. Battered and bruised rather than broken - could have been a lot worse. Bike needs a whole new front end, it's not practical to fix in Turkey, so it's flying home today / tomorrow. With me following as soon as I know it's left.
Garage in Manchester is ready to receive it.

Dave, I feel your pain. My husband (Roynie) and I were due to ride from Inagh (in the West of Ireland) to China. We left on 26th April, but I had a really innocuous accident on a gravel road, just inside the Russian border and broke my left fibula on 4th May.

Roynie is carrying on and is now in Almaty, due join up with GlobeBusters' Ace to Ace Expedition next week in Kyrgyzstan to ride to Beijing, while I am 'resting' at home with my elderly mother in the Isle of Wight!

However - and the reason I am posting here - I need to go back and collect my bike from Moscow next month, and I plan to ride east via the Trans-Siberian Hwy to Ulanbaatar and meet Roynie for the ride home. As most here will know, that's over 6,000 km, so I wouldn't be averse to some complany ...

Start / Finish: Moscow / Ulanbaatar
User: mrsroynie
Route: Trans-Siberian Hwy: Moscow, Nizhniy Novgorod, Kazan, Izhevsk, Ekaterinburg, Tyumen, Omsk, Novosibirsk, Mariinsk, Krasnoyarsk, Tulun, Irkutsk, Ulan Ude, Ulanbaatar
Main Dates: 6th - 23rd July approx
Vehicle: BMW R1150 GS
Notes:Deliberately taking it easy and sticking to tarmac ...
Links:www.inaghtochina.com or follow us on Facebook. NB If you are kind enough to think of following us on Facebook, I would be grateful if you don't mention this plan as, following the earlier disappointment, Roynie and I are keeping this one up our sleeves as a bit of a surprise for our supporters at home.

2016?

Just curious if anyone is going to pick this thread up or start a new one for the same West-East travel plans for the 2016 season? I'm hoping to be in position to do that portion of my RTW trip beginning around May/June 2016.

I post this here, even if it is not in 2015 but in 2017. Still its a great thread and maybe somone will be on the road then as well

Well we are not 100% sure about the route and there will be 3 parts (first to SEA then Oceania then Africa) but it is still some time before we leave...

Start / Finish: Switzerland - SEA (depends from where we can ship our bikes to NZ)

User: XTAdventure (Xenia & Tinu)
Rout: Switzerland, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Iran, Turkmenistan, Usbekistan, Tadjikistan, Kyrigstan, Kasachstan, Russia, Mongolia, China, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia...
2nd part would be NZ and AUS (or vise versa depends on shipping and weather) and then South Africa back to Europe for the 3rd part.
Main Dates: Start in March 2017, end is open
Vehicle: XT 660 R & XT 660 Z
Notes: still working on the exact route...and everything else...
