Hey Vincent,

I am leaving the UK around beginning of May. I shall go to Venice to grab the ferry to Greece and then ride through to Turkey then Iran, Pakistan and India. I shall be going quite quickly but would be good to meet up.

After India I don't knwo where I'm going yet but I shall be in India for a while I suspect.
I shall be on a Honda Dommie.

Hi Vincent,Spud, Maarten,

We will be landing in london, early May, to travel through Europe to Turkey and Iran by October. Shipping the bike to Malaysia in November, then on to Australia by end of January and back to Canada by May 2003. We are skipping Pakistan and India this trip, more because of time restaints than problems there. I would like to ride the KKH but November would be too late, so next time.

Hope to meet you on the road somewhere, stay in touch...
Cameron

ps. we will be in Paris early June, do you know of a hotel that is bike freindly with secure parking?

hi mates,
thanks for your answers
great ! so many people going :-)
well, here's my plan, not the easiest route !
but should be so great, i've been in some of those countries backpacking
i'm leaving beginning of april direction russia to mongolia then kazakhstan, kirghizistan, ouzbekistan, turkmenistan.
it seems quite hard for visas and entering the bike in those countries, you need invitations, etc ...
from turkmenistan, iran
once in iran direction india, via pakistan or with the boat
india then nepal direction thailand via bangladesh, burma (if possible) or with the boat
stay a bit in south east asia don't know about china, it costs a lot from what i understood to enter the bike
maybe korea, japan
then oz, nz and americas (from patagonia to canada) i don't know a lot about boats from oz/nz to patagonia

i'll tell you how it goes for visas, entering the bike, etc ... i wrote to embassies etc ...


take care, have fun preparing your route(s)

nb : i'm going on a r100gs pd

Spud, Vincent,

I plan to overland to India, leaving mid-April or so. I've only just decided on that right now so I have some work to do (decision was forced by my employer, not me!)! I'm thinking of going via Turkey/Iran/Pakistan. I'll be riding a modified GS1150. I'll be in touch shortly...

yeah, it could be great to meet on the road
i don't know how to contact you
i just had a website :
http://vincent.danna.free.fr/
there's my email on it

i'm going through ex-ussr
got my ouzbek visa easily with a french travel agent (invitation 45 euros or voucher is needed) + 72 euros for the visa
kirghize visa with the embassy in belgium : no invitation needed, visa for 55 euros
kazake visa en route : invitation needed 65 euros, visa 107 euros
turkmene : some problems to get a decent price for invitation (over 100 usd for the moment), they ask to book hotels ...
russia : invitation is needed, you can go on ryh.ru : 50 usd with one night
iran : like turkmenistan,+ they would not deliver a visa in france if after we go to pakistan ??? in your countries, is it the same for iran visa (watch out!)?

thanks, safe travels

Flipping 'eck, this is turning into a bit of a Middle East party. We're currently in Nairobi and planning to meet Spud & GS George in Iran mid May. It'd be great for the purpose of getting through Pakistan and generally having a laugh if we could get a group together.

We're aiming to be in Tehran on the 20 May, what think you all?

Just put in for my Iranian visa. We'll see what they say about the fact that we are going through Pakistan afterwards. The guy at the Consular looked concerned that I may want to go to Afghanistan but ok when I said Pakstan. Just needed to know I had a visa for Pakistan. We'll see....
Take a few weeks apparently so I shall hear then and let you guys know.
