i'm looking for advise for my ride from london to perth. Can anyone suggest a good route through iran because i'm not to keen hanging about the place by myself with the whole iraq thing going on. i'm also after advise on boats from malaysia to indonesia and indonesia to auz.
If anyones done the trip before, how long did it take you and how much money did you need.

Dont think Iran is Iraq! Iran has fantastic sites and warm generous people and was undoubtably one of the highlights of my trip. For a country that has endured economic sanctions since 1979 you will be surprised at the ability of people to separate the actions of governments from the actions of individuals. You will meet lots of people on the Europe Asia route if your wanting to meet other travellers. After months where i met one other international biker ( in Almaty) I ran into a carpark full of foreign bikes in Esfahan. Ancient cities and cool caravanserais. If your going that way enjoy the 6 cents a litre petrol and easy camping to have a good look around...OK so there is no grog but you wont be there forever.

You could try the www.africa-overland.net website and go to the Australia / asia section. There is plenty of information on the websites and also contact email addresses.
