We have finally had time to sit down and look at the route, and now we have a rough schedule and an approximate route.
Oh yes – you are totally right. It is very ambitious! 15000 km in only 30 days. That is 500 km per day in average…
We have posted the route on Facebook, and as expected many of the people out there advice against this distance in so few days. Well, they might be right, and then they might not. Make a bet ?
Amongst the three of us we have well over 100 years of riding experience. That is more then 1 million kilometers motorcycle riding, and a great part of that is touring both short and long distance. Hence we should have enough experience to figure out that this plan is foolish. Too ambitious, too hard for both men and machines, too painful and with no time to experience everything worth experiencing along the way.
And then again, maybe not…. We’ll see.
Underway our youngster, Kenneth, will turn fifty. That will hopefully happen somewhere remote in Mongolia, and we plan for a rest day the day after.
We will be grateful for any advice that can help us ease the trip (we have already noticed that some find it too far in too few days).
Contacts and helpers along the way is also welcome.
Initially our plan was to ride to Ulan Bator, and then ship the bikes back to Europe, but after having looked into it we find this too expensive. And we would probably have to cope with weeks without the bikes before we could pick them up somewhere.
And – it is far cooler to ride them back home.
There – and back again!
