Bike prep and paperwork
12.06.2016 - 04.08.2016
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.
France, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Georgia, Russia, Mongolia, back out to Russia, Estonia and Sweden
