Im in Islamabad waiting for an Iranian transit visa which has taken 14 days so far (yawn). I will be at the Tourist Park from tomorrow and will stay for upto a week before giving up and shipping the bike back to Oz as I'm running out of time. It would be great to meet up with anyone thats traveling through.

Hi marcel,

When do you plan to be in India?

I'm back in Delhi, I have a little work to make on Changeling (my R80Tic BMW) than I plan to make my way to Nepal to fly out to Thailand!!

What are your plans?

I would like to fly my self & my bike with some eles, as there are some savings to be made & it would be nice to travel with some one for a change.


Ride free, Ride safe, Ride one more mile,


Rik & changeling

Hi Rik

Our plans are constantly changing but at a rough estimate we were planning to spend the month of November in India (we hadn't really planned for Nepal (bit cold?) and not enough money) but were planning on a couple of weeks in Thailand and then maybe one in Malaysia (flying out of KL). It's bound to change though so we'll keep in contact. We are keen to ship with someone else too!

Keep in touch

Marcel
