Anyone in Central Asia, Altai-Russia & Mongolia between mid-July and end-August 2012?
As the thread title says: Anyone in that part of the world at that time? I’ve teamed up with a predominately Dutch group of bikers to share a container from Holland to Almaty in Kazakhstan, opening container on 16 July. Then most people are going their separate ways. Maybe some are going the same as me, who knows… Most seem to be riding back to Europe.
I intend to maybe do a 3 week loop through Uzbek, Taj, Kyrg and back to Almaty. Then in early August head through the Altai region of Russia and enter through the western border into Mongolia and ride to UB.
I’ll be on a modified (and ancient) Transalp (stiffer suspension, big tank, soft luggage and Pirelli MT21 tyres). I’ve done a lot of green-laning in the UK and abroad, mainly on a DRZ, so not scared of the rough(er) stuff, but I do like to drink beer in the evening. I intend to camp/stay in cheap guesthouses and eat in the street/off my camping stove.
Anyone in the area, maybe doing something similar? I’m not particularly looking for somebody to ride with the whole trip and I definitely don’t want to hold anybody’s hand, but possibly you’re going the same way on the same day and we can ride a little together.
