Hi SaltyCaptain !
Thank you.
For gravel roads, not specially, I don't have the right bike for that.
But, of course, I hate the main roads ;-)

Anyway, I notice your help's offer, and hope not having to ask for ;-)

You will be able to follow the trip here, because I'll try to send some texts and photos along the way.

Thank you very much for that, FinlandThumper.

Finnish hospitality - 1. Drink a shitload of booze with your guest, not mixed 2. Rip off your clothes 3. Step into a 100 C room 4. Run into the lake 5. Repeat until 5 am.

I'll die die at the point 1 !!!!

Awesome route! I plan on doing something close to your 2006 ride but with Ireland, UK, and western Russia thrown in. I'm guessing 10k miles in 2 months. Maybe we'll meet along the road.

I haven't picked my exact dates yet but I'd really like to go to a MotoGP race. The likely dates are:
Assen 28 June
Sachsenring 13 July
Brno 17 August.

It would be cool to meet some ADVers at a race.

It will be a nice trip too !
I plan to be 1 month earlier in the surroundings of Brno. For Assen and Sachsenring, almost 2 months earlier.

Have a great ride and stay safe

Sure you'll get it !
Many thanks for the wishes.
I'll try to report here as much as possible.
For the moment, the bike is at my brother, who is my personal mechanic ;-)

Hi DanVFR.
Thank you very much.
With pleasure for the beer (without maintenance, I hope), if you could come along my way. I will ride there normally on the sixth of April.
You can have a look on the planned routes here.

Hi,

I wish you celebrate the hell out of your tour! Im working in a motorcycle shop in Tallinn /Estonia, so if you need any kind of assistance, just give me a shout.

Being a fellow adventurer, it gives me joy to help out other riders.

Hi Luckybastard,
I'll need assistance in Tallin on the 24th of June, I think. But it seemed everything will be closed at this date ? If it's so, then I'll stay one day more. I think that I'll normally only need the change of oil and filter. I'll post here regularly to give news and send photos, then if you follow it, we will be able to contact us for potential meeting. Anyway, thank's a lot for your help's proposal.
