I could have eight weeks of vacation time saved up by next July. But it seems complicated and unlikely.

Can't go into details but the gig is likely to be winding up here. So the planets are aligning. Will know for certain in January. You need a lodger for 6 weeks starting June?

Hey Lowgman, look for a 50 year old idiot on a Suzuki at Goodwood. Or two.. hoping to find a teammate. The Finn I was planning to ride with can't make it this year.


OK, better start getting some planning done.

Applying for second passport: Check.

Tweaking the route. I have time limits and need to keep the Visa side simple.

~ 6000 miles. Not sure yet whether to drop down into Kstan.

You should go down to Romania and then back up by Moldova/Transnistria. As for Kaz, its harsh, unpredictable and melting hot..but the people are legends. You should definitely go through there. Visas are not that expensive and just order a double entry Russian.

Did the rally in 2013 on a Honda c90.

Thanks Nomadic. What visa type did you apply for (do the bike details have to be recorded with the Visa application?)

Hey Oscar!

Ulan Bator. It's notional, the Rally isn't really a race. The finish line could be the start line for something else...

Sorry, I mean where's the start line?
It is obscured.


There's more than one bloke on a motor bike isn't there?
Of course it's a race.

Richard, I will be passing over your mapped route north to south twice during July.

I am doing Helsinki to Tuscany and back with three weeks in a villa hiking in the Cinque Terre. Six or seven weeks total on the road. Definitely in the early days of your tour we will be crossing each others path in Germany I think if I don't get going too early. Let me know your route as you know it, maybe we can arrange a common city for a night and catch up?

I will be either alone or with another adv person from Sweden.

Mike
