Hi Bernhard, we met at the campsite in Islamabad. Me on the ktm 640 and my brother on Africa twin.
Just a bit of info, I entered Thailand twice with my bike on a tempory import document (not carnet) which was free and valid for one month, however I stayed in Thailand for 3 months and then flew home for another 3 months to work.
I had no problems just riding past customs on my way to Malaysia an then used ther carnet. It is a little risky but all the bikers I been traveling with have all skipped customs.
Just for your information
Cool to see you are hitting a new country, you have been in India for ages!
