Pakistan Bikers Club teams would be on the KKH this summer and you can join them. All chapters of PBC would be glad to facilitate your trip. When in Lahore give me a call and we might arrange a meeting with the local bikers over a cup of tea.
Last year a group of European members of HU did the same sharing cost while crossing China and might be able to advise you with experience.

Hi Omar,

Thanks,

Simon

Hi Simon, we're headed East in a week's time. We'll be visiting a friend in Sofia (who doesn't know anything about bikes). Do you perhaps have a tip on getting new tyres there for my Honda Africa Twin? ;-)

Sounds great Simon, we'll give you a call! And hopefully you have not departed for your trip by then! We'll expect to arrive in Bulgaria end of March.

Tyre sizes are right. Thanks for the complements on the AT!

Cheers,

Just an update on planning,

so far we have accumulated 4 or 5 fairly certains, and a potential total of up to 10, although I don't think a group any larger would work well,

dates: entering China 4 5 or 6th September.

We narrowed the choice down to two agencies and close to finalising, so just investigating the nitty gritty- how we pay, how to sort out paperwork

Please though still pm me if anyone else is interested in case people drop out?


Thanks

Fern


p.s glad to hear about the lake shrinking. :-)

Further on we would like to make a route from India to Nepal, Tibet to Laos.

We plan to enter China from Kyrgyzstan arround 5th os September.

Hi fern, would I be right in thinking that for your planned route you can get all the visas on the road? Are there any you have to get in your own country?
Cheers

Here is the thread about getting Pakistan Visas at border. It is usually a big no no, only issued in UK, but situation changes.

Otherwise, not sure, I think the stans are all ok on the hoof, dunno about China as I've got a multi entry business one through work
