Amsterdam to Delhi; how long will it take?

Hi there,

I'm planning een motorbike trip from Amsterdam to Delhi (last quarter of 2008) Anybody done the trip? How much time would I need to do the trip so it would still be a holiday with the occasional sightseeing?
Still any roadbooks lying around? :-)
Looking forward to any replies.

Greetings,

Roland

Sorry to hear @Dnicolleti that you couldnt manage a Pakistani visa. I feel sorry for you as you might have missed the most fascinating place in all this route. I would agree with @Emanuel that Pakistan is wonderful and has to be experienced and is simply indescribable, contrary to the media profiling.

Contact the PBC, Pakistan Bikers Club, the next time you try. They might be able to help or sponsor. Best of Luck.

Pakistan Bikers Club

The website is under construction and should be completed soon. In the meantime you can stay in touch with them through my email as I happen to be its current president.
A few friends would be leaving for a few days wandering in the Deosai plains on the 22nd of September ie after the month of fasting. Would look forward to your company, if at all possible.
