@Kruse Have been as far east as Mt Ararat in Turkey, most of the roads are pretty good in Turkey (oops that was 29 years ago) we were advised to turn around as Saddam Hussain had decided to invade Kuwait. If you are going up through the "stans" and into Mongolia I believe roads there also pretty good and no traffic!
Yeah - going through the "stans", but not Mongolia (at least - not on the way).
So far - UK, France, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia&Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Turkey
The route from here on in - Georgia, Azerbaijan, ferry across Caspian Sea, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, then down into China via Xinjian, Tibet, then up to Beijing.
After that - I'm seriously considering going on to Mongolia, to hire one of the little local 150cc bikes there for a few weeks. Help kill some time before heading to Japan to watch some rugby.
