How out of the question is Afghanistan?

Has anybody been into or through there recently?

I would not try it
I met surpringly many tourists with their own vehicles (mostly cars) who visited A. when I was in Pakistan last year (August-October 2006). Among them a pushbiker from Venezuela and a guy from Australia on a shiny R 1200 GS who both rode the Grand Trunk Road from Iran to Pakistan (the latter considered that being a very bad idea afterwards and strongly advised not to do this on a motorbike). Only a German couple and that Venezuelan guy thought it had been ok. Every single tourist I met reported of how very careful they were (dress like locals, Iranian number plates, no books with western letters etc).

And the security got a lot worse during the last year. Too risky right now I'd say.

Leave the bike at home and take a camel then you will really fit in with the locals.
