axolotl echoes my sentiments. Where are you going in Turkey and what sort of riding? If it is straight road touring then it should be easy sailing. I've been through Turkey but not Eastern Turkey and the roads there are pretty good. I even bunked one night with a highway construction crew on the road to Ankara.

Here's a pet theory of mine, countries that have to deal with a military situation and have some money, such as Turkey and its Kurdish situation will always build the best road links into such an area. That's one reason why you will find frighteningly straight and well maintained highways in certain parts of the Middle East where the local population may only have a donkey cart.
