Hey guys! Best intentions meant by saying this, but if possible please take further posts unrelated to the original topic into a PM. Just trying to keep the thread relevant to "Travellers Seeking Travellers".
Cheers very much
Happy riding.

Hi Sheldon

Hi Guys,

I plan a similar Trip in Spring 2014 from Switzerland - Japan, not sure yet if I should head trough Iran or Russia...
I was thinking on leaving here in April.
But unfortunately I have only a limited Time-Frame, 5 Month from either April or Mai...
How are your plans so far?
Let me know if you reach Switzerland in April or Mai, maybe we could do a part of the trip together.
