malaysia, thai, burma?

Hey there!
Im a Malaysian biker & glad to help u mate!
Ive done some travelling my self but mostly backpacking! Love to travel on my dommie but just cant afford it. Where do u want to ship the bike to? (frm sydney)
Singapore, Johore, Port Klang(Kuala Lumpur) Penang?
Maybe we can ride together in malaysia.
As far as i know u cant enter burma via thailand. u may visit the border via thai but transit is not allowed! (i'll find out for u) the burma embassy is just around the corner! Plans have been made to open border burma-bangladesh but I dont think its open yet. But From Bangladesh its all ok all the way to UK!
What you can do is go to cambodia; laos via thai & china (not sure how but most bikers manage to it) Once in China u can use the koarakoram highway to pakistan. from there u can go India, then again pakistan, Iran, Turkey & youre already in europe! or head south after iran to the mediteranean & africa, and then back to europe via any northern afican countries!
I have to go now I'll catch up with u tomorrow!

singapore to Paris

Hi Kev,

I am doing more or less the same trip and almost at the same time I think.
Leaving on the 20th of september from Singapore, then malaysia, thailand.
Thailand nepal by plane. Then India (kashmir), pakistan, Iran, turkey. From turkey I'll decide if I do a detour to Syria, jordan and egypt or if I go straight to Greece. Then eastern europe (where I do a loop around to see most of the countries) and then finally paris. I'm expectig to arrive latest end-december.
I'm by myself and riding a GS 1200 Adventure. Check my blog : Profile for Caprile - Singapore.
I would be glad to have a partner. Eventually can re-arrange the dates a bit.

Chris.

Hello guys,

Sounds like a great trip. I am on my way to Bali now but am only as far as Yemen so I can't join you for the ride back up :-( .

Hope you enjoy anyway.

Cheers

Hey Froggy

Hey there bud,
sounds like we should meet up on the road somewhere for sure, I'm flying the bike from Sydney to Malaysia on Monday next and will head to Malaysia myself when it's ready to be picked up. I'm on a 650 gs, just finished packing the thing,..... what a fun day that was.
Your route is pretty much the same as far as Europe any how,
well, get back to me when you get this
All the best
Kev
