Oz to the Isla of Mann for late November
I'm on the trip as I speak, left Oz in April and just reached LcLead Ganj in NW India today.
Next the Manali-Leh highway then eventually Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Turkey again, Europe depending on weather as how far north, the Scotland, Ireland and Isle of Mann loop.
Options open after that.
I'm on a 2003 BMW 1150GS and the pig is a real hoot 90% and a pain 10% of the time, there is no "Best Bike" and . what you're sitting on is the best for the day.
I'm happy to offer tips and even a trip Journal if you're interested.
After Oz I covered Singapore, Thailand, Laos ( bit ) , Cambodia then Thailand again as Myanmar became a hassle after being sorted,,, Bangladesh , Bhutan, Darjeeling, Nepal East to West, then Agra and eventually here I am. 12,000km later, or 17,000km since I left home.
If you have the time see Bhutan !! I can suggest a group to help. It's the Himalayas I couldn't see from Kathmandu.
Ping a PM if you need more info.
Frank and the Pig.
