will mount a "local" laid back sort of bike, enfield or that japanese brand.first will tour india and get to know the bike and then "chelo pakistan".

1 - carnet for nepal baught bike ( have no motor-association back home ,panama )
2 - iran/pakistan visas and escorts
3 - road conditions
4 - good food hole-in-the-wall spots

India Feb '10 - ???

Should be getting my Indian visa tomorrow, expect to show up in Delhi or Mumbai in early February. Plan to get an Enfield and tool around a couple months, then head West (probably with a more reliable and Nepalese-purchased machine) if I can get Pak/Iranian visas; otherwise will fly to SE Asia and rent goofy 125-250's in different countries for a while. Sorry to be so vague, but that's as much planning as I'm capable of beforehand (other than sore arms from shots today, and still trying to contact the Canadians RE carnet stuff just in case the visas really do work out). Could be that your "some months" and my "when and if I get visas" will coincide.

without carnet


I'm arriving in India in a couple of weeks but will be hanging around India Nepal for a couple of months probably before I head west.

You say you've been hearing reports of people getting through without carnet? Tell me more!
