My wife and I are planning to ride from London to Australia through Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, India then through SE Asia to Singapore for onward transport to Cairns in Oz.
We are thinking of riding Honda Pan Europeans or similar (Yamaha FJR1300, or BMW tourer such as the K1200GT??)
What I am curious about is the condition of the roads between Turkey and say Malaysia as this will obviously dictate the type of bike, tyres and the exact route.
Has anybody done this route on a simmilar bike or would the recommendation be for a different type such as the BMW R1200GS Adventurer or such?
We will be each riding our own bikes.
Most of the other bits of info we need have been found on this site already, but I could not find any advice on the road types and conditions in these countries.
Any assistance very much appreciated.
