Uzbek visa question - there and back

Hi, I'm planning a trip that will involve riding my motorbike from Kazakhstan through Uzbekistan to Turkmenistan and then back into KZ via UZ. The bike will be registered in KZ.

Duration of the trip would be about a week but I can't guarantee to be transiting UZ in 72 hrs each time. Can I do this on a single visa?

According to my information you can get a double entry transit visa, valid for 3 days each time. It is some time ago this happened though, so you might want to double check with the embassy in Almaty/Astana if they still do that.

Oh, actually, I just realized, you cannot get a transit visa for Turkmenistan if you enter and exit from/to the same country. You need a tourist visa for that. But you can get a transit visa for Uzbekistan of course.
