Based on the number of VStroms that are pictured, it's obvious that Turks have good taste in motorcycles

I think I know the answer--I want to be able to ride on dirt roads, gravel & mud without worrying about dropping my bike. Now I have to convince my wife.

Hope to meet you all next year!

I am Turkish and also currently live in DC. Lived in Ankara for over 10 years. I crossed all of Turkey from West to East on a BMW F-650, so I have an idea regarding the biking aspect too.

A coffee or beer gets you all the inside information on Ankara and Turkey that you want.

Drop me a PM if interested.

here we ride & drive on the side where there's no pot hole. I think duals are the best choice here. u never know when the bastardly ankara mayor decides to dig up a street. the a-hole is still tyring to reinvent tunnels and all.

besides since you'll be in ankara you'd probably be wanting to travel anatolia all around. go see hittite settelements, go see the phrygaen valley etc; get a dual..

and damn you can buy stuff without tax. prices will be lovely for you. but then again you'd have to to sell it to a foreigner later on to make life easier. mebbe people at the online expat community can help you. I think www.myMerhaba.com is the most popular site.

Wink Hello from Nerudarider!

Hi!
My name is Kaan and am living part-time in Istanbul with a R 1200 GS and a F 650 GS DAKAR. I am an OMM member, love long distance riding and have ridden 35000 km mainly in East Europe. Will be in Turkey between 27.12.06 and 15.01.07.

Let's make a plan a ride somewhere far a few days! Any suggestions?

PS: I will be at the MAD-RUN on Jan 1st! Let's meet there :)

-Another- Hi from Istanbul,
Considering the traffic jam that we are riding in this city, one doesn't need to go to the mountains or to the deserts seeking for adventure. What they say to the rookie riders in this town is: "Welcome to the jungle !"...
I am from the Asian side of the city and travelling between the continents each and every day. I am gonna' post a picture of mine on my Transalp ASAP.

Being a proud member of Agirabiler Enduro-Touring Fun Club, all I can say for now is:
"Hello Everyone, good to be here with you"...
