    Hi

    I have read endless reports but I am yet to get a feeling for what route to take across Kazakhstan, I am in Ulan Ude at the minute and about to ride through Mongolia, i know that in Mongolia the North Route is Slower but more scenic and interesting and the south is faster with more bridges, but I can't seem to gain any knowledge on what the routes are like in Kazakhstan?

    I will be there in early June, on my own with very small amount of off road skill. So probably don't want anything hardcore! Also I have about 200 mile range. (riding a Triumph Scrambler)

    So what will be best for me - Ability, time of year and limited time, I'm heading East to West.

    I just want a general feel so I don't bite of more than I can chew and miss anything worth seeing!

    Thanks in Advance
