I`m planning 2up tour in june (about 3 weeks) - from EU, around the Black Sea, from Armenia to Iran and from Iran back to EU. I would like to have some advices and info about the best itinerary, especially about routes and border crossings from Armenia to Iran (without entering Azerbaijan, due to high costs). Currently i see only one option, via Turkey...
as i traveled several times to armenia and area,i would suggest you to discover this beautiful country
there is only one border between armenia and iran which is you can cross without any problem but you must have carnet for your bike
and do you want to get infos about iranian roads?
any questions are welcome
or you can contact me directly you can get on my blog
I have travelled through turkey many times. Beautiful friendly country . I am very I nterezxted in travelling through Ukraine to Russia then to Georgia and perhaps Armenia and Iran. So any information I can supply p,ease let me know. As and please let me have any information on Iran and on Georgian military highway road conditions.
You could always go up to Sost (Pakistan) and round the top missing out Iran altogether. (A week through China will cost a few quid mind)
You'd have the joy of The KKH and Hunza as long as you're not planning to travel in the winter!
Is it an Indian registered moto, if so you'll have problems there as well.
Don't believe media.No safety problem.Have 5 friends currently biking in Iran,more than 15 in Pakistan, 1 Turkish couple biker and 1 cyclist friends...Iran and Pakistan highly recommended before the natural beauties are lost because of development,modernisation(whatever you call it) comes.
Read this and cheese!!! Terrifying Countries You Must Visit - AskMen,
@all other friends at the same destination through Turkey.
Things may change so fast in this area so better ask for current situation at border gates,ferries between Turkey and other countries 10-15 days before you start your trip...All current information available at the club and all questions are friendly welcome..
Our club is a pit-stop and meeting place for bikers..
My wife and I travelled though Iran in 2009 and 2010. As a white English couple (on 2 motorcycles) it is far from an easy place to travel, with respect to the Police/Military! There are large parts of the country you will have escorts which are a real pain in the arse (unlike Pakistan where the escorts are great if a little slow and all this was before the current problems.
I'm pretty sure I would go if I was in you position now (assuming you can get a visa, which I doubt!)
On the other side of the Rial the general public are great, friendly and helpful.
How many countries would you visit before random strangers take you out for dinner or come over to you when you are sat on a kerb at a fuel station offering you fresh fruit from there weekly shopping
It is sure unlike any other of the countries I've visited.
