India to UK on and Enfield
Hi, anther Newbie here,

I am currently planning a trip from India to London.
There are 2-3 of us doing this trip and planning on leaving early next year ( i know its a long time away but work and the rest)
anyway we are looking at going via Pakastan Iran Turkey then anyway which way through Europe.
If anyone has done this trip it would be great to get some advice. We are traveling on Enfield Thunderbirds all 2005 models and newer.
How easy is it to take bikes across borders? i was imagining that into pakastan, Iran and Turkey would be the hardest as once you get into the EU then the border crossings are easyer? is this right?
Do we need a carne? are theses expensive?
And what are the chances if any of getting the Tbird regestered in the UK?
Anyway if anyone has done parts or all of this trip i would love to hear about it and any advice you have, ie what spair parts you recomend taking and the likes.

Thanks and look forward to hearing from you
