how safe is riding in your country for foreigners wright now? we're planning with a friend to reach Islamic Republic of Iran via north coast of your country.
i hope the best for your people and your country the following days.

P.S.:I wanted to ask why all this mess is happening but i believe that the reasons r reasonable logical...
Be carefull in Iran but Turkey would be very safe to pass . We have some demonstrations about government but its in the cities generally . At the moment 79 cities involve in demonstrations. But you will be ok. Around Black Sea which is the north of turkey everything is normal. And you will have a lot fun .

By the way we are Turkish and majority of the Turkish don't like Athens be very carefull :) lol

Izmir / Turkey

Hi Folks,

I live in İzmir, western part of Turkey, which has a coast to the Aegean Sea. Here we have a wonderful landscape as long as you can escape from the city.

Mountains, olive and pine trees, and maquis scrubland too. And last but not least the sea, of course. Love to the nature and peace of mind, is what you find.

Riding here is kinda way where you can be aware you really live. Where every breath you take is like swallowing elixir. This the way I see being out there. Thank God.

Here are my boys who take me out there:

My Enduro:










My Street Bike:





Peace.

Hi, asiti ( at) is not an argo word. it means highest point of the section. You are right about "geçis" it is not exact meaning of at. "Asmak" means passing a high point. At is the place which passed.

I hope it helps you.

Riding in Turkey.

Is it possible to purchase a used motorcycle for riding in Turkey? What are the requirements for purchasing one & is there any restrictions? I am thinking of selling it after the ride.
When is the best time?
Thanks.

Hi Aki, Best time is summer time especially June and July for west coast of Turkey. If you want to see south coast, best time is September and October. As you see you should come to in Turkey summer time.

If you want to have a friend in your journeys, i can assist you for next summer. I do not promise but we can talk about it in next spring.

I don't know how foreign people can buy a motorbike in Turkey. Maybe i can ask it to some friends.

Aki buying a bike in Turkey is a pain. You need a residence permit and the notary costs for transferring the bike to your name are expensive. Used bikes in Turkey keep their value which makes even 10-15 year old bikes expensive compared to somewhere like England. Selling a bought bike can take a while too.

Cheers,

Dickyb

That's sad. Maybe I just rent a bike.

Service in Izmir

Hello -

We are travelling through from New Zealand to Europe on our BMW R100GS, and are in Izmir, Turkey at the moment. 25,000 km so far and the bike needs some attention!

Can anyone nearby recommend a place where we can do this? I'm not looking for someone to service the bike for us, we just need a place where we can work for about a day. Of course we can cover any consumables or parts from a workshop, but labour charges are outside our budget unfortunately. We can probably cover a beer or two though...

Please let us know if you have ideas.

Cheers,

Igor and Penny

Im in Izmir but I have no idea about where you can give it a maintanence by yourself. If you need any technical assistance or look for some spare, just let me know. I know people who might help you. My mail......kahramaninaloz@yahoo.com.....

BTW, i am sure labour charges are much more cheaper than the ones in your country. So if you cannot find some place, dont hesitate to take it to a workshop.

Enjoy Izmir :)
