The road to Georgia was loooong but we left home with a lot of enthusiasm and charged batteries. We left Bucharest pretty late, at 4:00 P.M. and we arrived in Turkey at 1:00 A.M. almost frozen.
The toughest offroad ride we have ever experienced. 100-ish kilometers between Ushguli and Lentehki, river crossings, rocky paths, snowy slopes. Two-up on road tires. Fun guaranteed!
Following an unexpected problem with one of the motorcycles, we had the fortune to encounter some of the most amazing people we have ever met.
Mongolian - like plains and hills. One could ride in any direction, explore and reach any hill in the distance. No roads obviously, a magnificent experience. This experience sparked the 2017 Mongolia trip ride :)
Follow us on the road back to Romania. Riding across proper tarmac once again 111 km/s two-up on a 650 cmc motorbike is easy-breezy in Turkey.
This is the trip's breakdown per days. See the track and telemetry we have recorded for each day.
