    Hi everyone,

    Me and my mates will be traveling to Caucasus. The route is planned from Poland through Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Russia and Ukraine - A loop around Black Sea.

    We will cover 5000 miles ( 8000 km) in four weeks.
    Rough camping, low budget diet, no GPS and loads of adventures :)

    We especially are looking forward to visit in Caucasus and hope to pop in to Chechnya and (fingers crossed) climb on mount Elbrus - if time/situation permits.

    We depart in two weeks from now (21 Jun). 4 x Honda Transalp and KTM 640 Enduro, wide range of riding experience. As always we have different ideas about luggage. I believe we cover all the options from soft bags to aluminium panniers.

    Bikes are almost ready, last time adjustments will happen very likely;)
