HI Asia riders to meet in Pakistan

I´ve seen in some post, riders going through Pakistan asking to meet riders or info about how is the situation.
Seeing we are a few going the same period of time, here you have some theads:

http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...-october-58449

http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...-company-57683

... there is more. We could try and see if its possible to meet somewhere and have a little HU met, eventualy even crossing Pakistan on group.

I am planing to get there around end of September, begining of October.
Could flex my dates a bit.

October and Novembers have the best weather in Pakistan although high mountains start getting cold.
Ideal time for biking and GTGs.

go for it guys - anything we can do to help, just ask! All you need to do is set a date and place, and people will find their way there.

So many bikers in the area,some of them were in İstanbul a while ago.. I am still in touch with them and sent messages all to check this thread.
Our members are very happy and respectful for the hospitality and friendship they have lived in Lahore.
Cahit is in İran by BMW.plated TR-35 and will also be in the area until october..After mid sept. some more friends will be in Lahore and some different passes to be the first Turkish bikers there.
I also take this as a chance to thank again to all kardesh bikers in Pakistan aspecially in Lahore and Islamabad.
Sugar,milk,flavour ready,the only need is a light to cook the halva.(TR.saying)
I think will be better after Ramazan as I believe everybody will be pleased to respect Islamic Ramazan traditions.
Lets keep this thread alive.

Best wishes and hayırlı ramazanlar.

I would let the guests from abroad to finalise the dates for the HU meeting in Lahore. I will be available October/November and would be needing a weeks notice.
@Zaki, Would be great to have Turkish friends in Lahore. Hope this time we will meet too.
