Aus to UK 2014

Hi,

I'm a 24y/o, 6'7 Australian guy with a modified DRZ400S - and in Feb of next year I'm planning to ride around the world.

The plan is an overland trip from Melbourne, Aus to London, UK.
Heading up to Darwin before shipping the bike across to East Timor mid Feb and island hopping to Malaysia. Then going to ride overland the rest of the way through Thailand, Myanmar (hopefully), India, Pakistan, Iran etc.

So far I'm going solo but would like to travel with people for part of the way.

I'd be happy to hear from anyone heading the same way or wanting to join me for some of the journey.

Tim

Hi all,

Yes everyone seems to be coming the other way!

Thanks Jaykay, it's a tempting offer but they're something about departing from home which I like. Besides, if I make it to the UK and I'm still in good condition I'll likely continue to either the US or Africa.

Just confirming shipping dates now and at this rate I'll be arriving in Dili late Feb, so hopefully I'll see you all on the road.

Hi TGS
You may have seen my threat of Vladivostok to Eur starting from Vlad in june
No takers thus far. The same as your experience is that everyone seems to come from Europe. Would you consider to the Vlad trip. I am riding a F650 BMW. I am 6'2 and a bit older then you. Some years ago I completed India to Eur. Feb 10 I will be doing another Vietnam-laos trip en in April south Africa. The 650 needs to be shipped in may for a start around june1
cheers richard

Heading similar way

Hi Tim,

I've been doing a pretty similar trip to you so far too on my DR650, Wagga - Darwin - Singapore, Bangkok to Kathmandu.

I am waiting on mail and cruising around Nepal for the rest of this month, Nth India next month and crossing Pakistan and Iran in September.

Maybe I'l run into you along the way if you in this neck of the woods at the same time as me.

Cheers,

Zac
