Crosing Turkia, iran, pakistan to india in august

Hello Friends,

I'm Fernando, and i start my RWT in august, you can see my route in: Ruta | La vuelta al mundo en moto , sorry for the moment the web is only in spanish.

i'm a bit sacred about crosing pakistan at the end of august/half september. ZHDAN-QUETTA-LAORE, crosing all pakistan close to afganistan.

The question is, is dangerous to crooss that with your bike alone?, better meeting other bikers to crooss pakistan?

Thank you all

You will not be alone...will meet many riders same direction or opposite direction and will make some breaks in nowhere lands to change experiences,advices and maps.
Thats the link for photos showing how it happens...

You will like travelling behind AK-47....and Toyota between check points.And this will be the most enjoyable,exciting and hospitable part of your trip.
I ve done this in 1983 and 1986 personally, my club friend in 1998, and now younger generations of the club doing this..the same since then...nothing has changed...
On the other side,there are much more dangerous parts in your RTW.travel route...Better we discuss these when you are in istanbul and visit our club.

Wish you all the best....

Note...Mr.Grant has punished me!!!! so unable to upload more photos..Thats why I give the links to photos.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
