Mongolia in September

I'm contemplating a trip to Mongolia around September, about 20+ days of riding. I'd prefer doing it on the "local" bike, i.e. the IZH Planeta. I've ridden and owned Minsk's in the past (the "local" bike in Vietnam) and so have an affection for old Russian bikes. Yes, the bike is likely to break during the trip, which would make the trip somewhat "mechanical", but I like that sort of thing (fixing a bike in the middle of nowhere with a rock and a piece of wood).

A few months ago I was actually planning to go around April (which is now), but none of my mates could make it. I am not sure yet if I should attempt it on my own (although I have done a solo trip in the past). I'd appreciate any opinions, advice and if anybody wants to join - drop me a line.

Generally, the plan is to spend 2-4 days to buy/hire a bike and get any supplies, parts and tools needed in Ulan Bator. Ride for 20+ days, then 2-3 extra days in Ulan Batar to get rid of the gear/bike and get drunk. In all about ~1month (I'm a working man - that's about my limit...).
