Don't forget you can camp at the customs compound about 130kms from the border (inside Pakistan). Very friendly/generous officials who even gave me my own bed...

The yellow tyre in the picture? Thats actually my spare rear tyre leaning next to the front wheel, its a pretty rubbish $50 Goldenboy tyre from Islamabad that I was carrying, much thinner than the original rear but it was all I could buy.

Cheers about the video, yes after a while I thought 'well if you're all just going to stare at me, I can also stare at you!'.

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.
