    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.
    I’m 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 I’m 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!
