I have twenty free days in April, Turkey?

I have 20 free days in April and I intend to travel east Turkey.
I'd love to get your advice, especially about the weather.
I ride my R12GS and planning roads and easy off-roads.

Do I need to expect muddy ways?
Are there ways are blocked during this period?

Attached a preliminary sketch of the route.

I travelled through Turkey to Armenia this year leaving UK end of May. Idealy I should have left earlier but there was bad flooding through Europe which delayed me. April should be a good time to go, but in June Southern Turkey on the Med: can be uncomfortably hot and humid but as soon as you head north and get some altitude it cools down.
I presume you are getting ferries to Kas, I looked into ferries from Israel a few years ago but coudn't find any, which companies are you using? One thing I remember was traveling east from Kas (as you are) early in the morning the sun was (obviously) directly in my face and irratated the ride!
Have a good trip and ride safely.
