Great stuff. Hope you get started really soon.
Im from Singapore and will be doing my trip from Singapore-Malaysia-Thailand-Myanmar(if possible)India-Pakistan-Iran-Turkey-Bulgaria-Yugo- all the way till Ireland. My departure date is sometime end Feb to March 2003. Im awaiting my carnet paperwork, and will be apllying visas for 5 countries that i need. Myanmar, India, Pakistan, Iran, Bulgaria. I suppose you'll need the same visas too.
My bike ('89 Dommie) is now being prepared, waiting for new gaskets before we sew her up, and then to make some racks & panniers and i will be ready. Lets keep in touch.
