Long-term user impressions after a 25.000 km, two months, adventure travel
Meet Mihai and Adrian - two guys that set off on a journey to Mongolia. The bikes: a 2015 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 and a 2015 KTM 1190 Adventure R. Two months, 25.000 km, and a lot of memories.
This is not our usual review. It’s not ours, and it’s not a journalistic review, but the unfiltered experience of two motorcyclists that set off on a trip to Mongolia on their bikes. We just asked them to share us their experience, the problems they encountered, the most impressive views and some video footage.
They left Romania on 16.06.2017 on the following route: Bulgaria, Turkey, Georgia, Russia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turcia, Bulgaria, Romania. What a ride!
