It's heartening to know that there are quite a few of us planning to do the same route around the same time. It would provide us all with a communication network along the way if needed (border crossing info etc.), and an extra security blanket should we all need it.

It may be a good idea for all of us to meet at a convenient location in the UK so that we can put a face to the name, and exchange travel plans and contact details and some ideas etc.

I have sent an e-mail message via this site to Stuart and bmbiker, but should you guys not get it, and for anyone else travelling the same route at around the same time, call me on - oh seven seven four eight three six seven nine seven six. or e-mail me at - steveATrosshyphenbrdotgotadsldotcodotuk (hope this makes sense...)

Steve and Liz

I would be keen to meet up over a pint to swap some ideas etc etc or even meet up along the road. I would preferably like to ride in a small group through eastern Turkey/Iran/Pakistan.

Let me know if any of you are keen?
Sorry its taken so long getting back to you I have been away camping in Cumbria. Keen to share any ideas and information , where are you located, I`m in central London.

Regards Stuart

Hi Brian

Thanks for you links I will read them at some leisure. BMW`s are new to me did you do any special mods to your Adventure and how are you getting on with the limited packing for the two of you

Your site says your in Rome, when do you expect to get to Turkey. I think with the flare up in the middle east , you choose to fly over Iran/Pakistan could be a wize one!

Regards Stuart Ringer
