would one month be enough to cover most parts of Mongolia?
Great questions...

I am planning a trip to Mongolia after reading this RR, along with a couple of others...

I am not planning on shipping my moto to Mongolia. Would you trust renting a Mustang from a local company or buying one and then selling it?

I would be willing to meet up with a couple of others in UB and then head out onto the steppe... I am looking at August.

PM me.

Bring a tent. Mongolia has AMAZING places to camp.. everywhere.
I'm not sure how far you can get on a Chinese bike, but on a KTM I would go anywhere from 300 to 750 km per day. 200 to 300 offroad in a day in Mongolia is doable.

Fuel is about $15 to $25 a day depending. You can spend $3 to $10 on food if you are smart. Camping is free. I never stayed in any Ger camps unless in a city. And that was mostly to get internet.

1 month would make for an AMAZING Mongolian experience. You could probably circumnavigate the country in that much time. Make sure you post an RR.

Live2ridetahoe, There is an "unofficial" KTM shop in UB that has used bikes. When I was there this summer, they had a KTM 640 enduro they would sell for $4000. There was a handful of other enduros also.
Apparently now there is a new Yamaha dealer and you can get a Yamaha AG200E brand new for $3400.

I've bought a SH Shineray Mustang this summer from Olgii.

It was bought as new from UB by an English guy who came to Olgii where he sold it to me. I rode the bike to Sukhbaatar and I sold it there (without papers).

You can buy in UB a new Shineray for ~550 EUR. The English guy told me that he had the help of this company - http://cheketours.com/.

The bike has awful suspension. Otherwise it was ok.

Good luck
Cristian

JoeMotocross posted a link to Cheketours.com on page 1. I was thinking of contacting them.

@RoninMoto, I remember the unofficial KTM shop from your RR. I am not sure that I want to buy a bike outright and then have the hassle of selling it when I leave. I am recently separated and kind of on a budget right now. $3000-$4000USD would definitely be pushing it as far as funds go. That is the reason I am looking at the Shineray Mustang. I do like the price (if I needed to purchase) and availability of parts throughout the country. Maybe I could find one with a juiced up suspension from a Yamaha or KTM.... That would be sweet!

I am still very much in the planning/dreaming stage right now. I really have no idea what to expect when I get there. I would like to keep it simple and camp and ger it. I am going without expectations or daily mileage goals. I think I would like to make it to the Altai region. I know that it is far from UB tho.

I am lucky to have a forum like this and experienced travelers as guidance.

Unofficial KTM shop

I found a business card from the shop. Unfortunately the website doesn't work. Here is an email and phone number for the owner Purevdorj Amarsaikhan
