Hi folks as you probably know via the tour2cure link there's a few of us with partners riding Uk to Turkey & back one hell of an adventure.
Just to update you all we had a great meet over the weekend at Hythe in Kent Gypsy ( Dude ) from Canada turned up nice to see some brothers from over the water. The raffle raised £211 for the charity which at the moment with other donations is approx £6500 so if any of you folks are feeling generous please check out the donation link on www.tour2cure.co.uk .

Not long now will ring you when we get to your country.

I can't believe you guys are coming to Turkey! :D

Unfortunately your entry point at Turkey along with your checkpoints are nowhere near Istanbul :(

Livin' in Istanbul and not having any vacation time from my new job, I won't be able to see you and present you with some of my hospitality :cry:

But if you can make any modifications in your travel plans to include the great city of Istanbul, I'd be more than happy to meet you guys! :D

Not to include one of God's greatest creations is a real pity. Hoping to hear of some changes in your plan. Perhaps you can exclude a particular Turkish city in order to include Istanbul?!!

Murf Sure you can have my mobile, its +90 532 3506045

iergen Have you made sure that the hotel you booked has "safe/reliable" parking spaces which will be sufficient enough for our friends' bikes? (to me this would be the most important matter) :lol: ,

The same goes for all the other Turkish Hotels they will stay at :D
