Bike prep and paperwork

View Sweden via Mongolia on Speedmaster58's travel map.

I have been talking for more years than I care to remember about riding my motorcycle to Mongolia, I had even got the Lonely Planet's book on Mongolia as a Christmas present 2 years ago!
So it's time to stop talking and get planning...
The Bike is a 2000 BMW F650GS which I bought 2 years ago with only 13,000 miles on the clock and a full BMW service history and with BMW Vario panniers.
I took to a trip to Morocco in October 2015 with a couple of mates as a tester to see if it was the right bike for me and to find out what modification and additional gear Iwould need for the big trip
Each year a group of us meet in different countries in Europe at the end of July and this year we are meeting in Sweden, so a plan was formed. I would ride to the rally via Mongolia, sorted now to sort out the route and logistics.
The route:
France, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Georgia, Russia, Mongolia, back out to Russia, Estonia and Sweden
