    Dear friends!
    About Turkey in the network with enough information, but it is fragmented.
    We are all different, I was interested in such remote places, bad gravel road, high passes :)
    I beg to add to my collection!

    1. Cappadocia - Recommendations probably do not need a satellite can be clearly seen interesting terrain and abundance of roads :)
    2. The mountainous area along the Black Sea - is required visit to Sumela and remote villages Pokut, Amlakit, Elevit, Palovit, Hevek, Meretet ...

    4. Cham pass 2640m between Savsat - Ardahan.
    5. Agri Dagi (mt. Ararat):

    I wonder where that road in the first photo is?

    In Cappadocia, maybe ride up Göllü Dağ (2143m) and see the Hittite ruins up there - http://goo.gl/maps/bIHrH

    Hi and thanks for the link!
    Sorry for the late reply, was in the woods, opened motorcycle season.
    About the road in the photo - it is an area of the Black Sea, the road Of - Bayburt.
    The road was built by Russian troops in 1913. :)))

    Yes, and it is already partly asphalted :)
    The area has many interesting roads, but very damp climate: (
    Here Baltas pass 3098m:

    I see you're into the dirt tracks! My main interest is ancient sites in Turkey. And motorbiking is the best way of doing it.

    I haven't been to the north-east yet, one day! This is where I have been, 3 times with my BMW R80GS from England, and 5 times on rented motorbikes...

    You will have a great time. Turkey is my favourite biking country, and the people are really nice.

    Thank you!
    Very interesting!
    Little luggage - all Australians are modest?
    As for the tracks - like this one? :))

    [​IMG]

    Can you advise a couple of points or track on the map?
    I was in Turkey, I know about the heat, so the food in the autumn .

    By the way, my Turkish friend sent me the tracks and POI on the north-east - there are too many:))))
