Europe to Magadan via the Stans/Mongolia and back 2012

Hi there,
I plan to make a longer trip next year, mainly to go from Bucharest, Romania to Vladivostok, Russia via the Stans and Mongolia. Then fly/ship to Magadan and come back via Yakutsk, Lensk, Myrni, Irkutsk, Transiberian Highway to Ukraine and back home to Romania. I will ride a Honda Transalp.
Im looking for anyone planning a similar trip, and want to share information and ride together at least parts of the road.

Here is my plan:
Departure from Romania: end of april 2012
Turkey Georgia Armenia Georgia Azerbaijan
Entering Turmenistan from Azerbaijan by ferry: mid may 2012
The Stans 4 to 5 weeks
Entering Mongolia from Russia: end of june 2012
Vladivostok end of July (there are rumors of o big bikers party in the end of July )
Magadan: beginning of August 2012
Road of Bones maybe Old Summer Road
Yakutsk mid August 2012
Irkutsk beginning of September 2012
In beginning of September coming back home from Russia via Transiberia, Volvograd Kiev Cernauti Bucharest.

If I find a riding partner I want to ride the Old Summer Road in the Road of Bones in August from Magadan to Yakutsk.
Also if Im ahead of time, I would like from Ust Kut to take the western BAM to Tynda and return to Irkutsk on the Transiberian. That depends on too many things, its just a thought.
Anyone planning something similar for next year, send a message. Would be good to share info and perhaps the road.

How did you navigate across Mongolia's "roads"? If you used .gpx files, do you have any to share? I'm planning a similar route for this summer. Thank you!

Hi there,

I used a Garmin Zumo 550 with maps from www.openstreetmap.org

No problems with navigation. I did not save my routes.

I also uploaded the waypoints from there: http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...aypoints-50860

Have a great trip,
Adrian
