Turkey Route Planning

I will be renting a motorcycle in southwest Turkey in Gocek, near Dalaman in July for 8 days. I'm having a bit of a difficult time planning a route. Can anyone give me a suggested 8 day itinerary including some coastal and some mountain riding? I have the bike for about 2400km, but. Don't mind stretching it a bit. I want to see some interesting cities and historical sites along the way. Any suggestions are really really appreciated.

Dunno about distances right now, but if it's feasible, then Cappadocia in the middle of the country was a truly exceptional area to visit, strange architecture, underground cities, etc. But you should spend several days there to really do it justice, so if you've only got 8 days, then maybe it's not a good idea, just thought I'd mention anyway.

I just played a bit putting some of the places I have been last September and came up with this route.

Adrasan sunset

Efes ruins

Egirdir Lake

Pamukkale

Olimposbeach

On the coast, I would take every road going to the sea from the main road and just explore, camp on the beach, veggies are cheap, beer is good, petrol is expensive. Do not change curency in Antalya, the rate is very bad.

I will be riding through a part of your planned route. Check out my blog at http://goo.gl/qFr1v
You can keep an eye out for updates, and also I'd appreciate if you can send in some info you've received. If we're on the road at the same time I'd love to group up for a section of the way.

cheers

Hi,
I live here in TR, and make trips with my 1200GS, all the year, my suggestion for you is as follows, shown in the map. For details, you may ask.

Red Stars in the map, show where to stay, it is done for a round trip, from/to Göcek via most interesting places, using not main roads, if possible.
