Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia or Vladivostok, Russia? Looking for advice on where I should start my Eurasia summer 2019 bike trip. Originally I was going to start in Vladivostok in early May, and end up in Eastern Europe in August / September timeframe go through Mongolia and the Stan countries. However given the long distances, I’m thinking about skipping the eastern part of Russia and flying directly to Mongolia and starting my trip there. Would I miss a whole lot if I do skip Vladivostok? I need to get a bike once I’m in either location. So if you have tips on the ease of obtaining one in either location that’d be helpful I’m currently in India driving up to the Himalayas with my Royal Enfield. I’ll depart in May to start my Eurasia trip! — ￼looking for recommendations.
