road trip from EUROPE TO INDIA

Hey,

I'm going to India via Turkey, Iran and Pakistan. I want to start in summer 08 and my ride is a Yamaha sr 500.
Unfortunately I'm not a loner, so if you want to join me, or you know somebody who wants to do the same wicked trip as me, just tell me.

cheers TINO

Hello Tino!
I am Greg from Poland and I also plan moto trip to India or maybe even China-Mongolia-Russia and then back home this summer. Hard to talk about details for today but I think it is possible to go together there.

Rosenheim - Nepal

Hi Tino,

I'm an Englishman living in Rosenheim, Bavaria. I'm planning to ride a similar route leaving in August. I'm basically planning to ride alone, but if it worked out would be open to meeting up with other travellers on the road to ride particular sections (for example: Bam - Quetta). Do you have a definite leaving date in mind? I plan to leave here at the beginning of August, spend a bit of time in Turkey and hopefully arrive in Iran at the beginning of September. Would that fit in with your plans?

Best wishes

Chris

In the early stages of planning a trip through Europe to Turkey, Iran to Kyrgystan and back, alternatively Russia, Kazakhstan to Kyrgystan and back.

Would be interested to hear from others heading in that general direction.

Rosenheim - Nepal

Hi Murat,

I'm planning to ride a very similar route to the one that you describe - and also don't plan to hang about in Pakistan. I'll be arriving in Istanbul sometime at the end of the first week in August - I hope to meet my parents in Istanbul and spend a week with them there then will head through Turkey towards Iran. Our planned times are a little different but maybe we could work something out.

As I said in my original post, I would particularly welcome company on the section between Bam and Quetta (the principal being "safety in numbers" - although everything that I've read/heard recently suggests that the stretch is rideable without problems if you use common sense and keep your eyes open).

If you can be flexible with your times perhaps you could let me know. I would be open to "speeding up" my own prospective program in Turkey/Iran to try to catch up with you if it is at all feasible.

I would also be happy to hear from any others who are planning a similar route.

Cheers

Chris

P.s.

I forgot to mention in my last post that I intend to spend a few months in Nepal and India and probably won't be heading back towards Europe until May or June.

Ditto

Could well be interested in linking up for the Pakistan leg - I have no intention of hanging around except for the gate closing cremony at Lahore. I will be riding into Pakistan mid-late September from Iran (having rejoined my bike that is currently parked in Dubai). Once in India I would probably split as I want to visit Kelra but it would be ace to have join up here and there.

I am riding a sports tourer (Honda VFR750) so stick mainly to the tarmac - I think that will be mad enough in India!

Rosenheim - Nepal

Hello Gentlemen,

Good to hear that a few of you are planning to ride a similar route - it would be great if it were possible to meet up for some of it (especially eastern Iran/Pakistan). My prospective plans are very flexible, especially after Istanbul (I hope to leave Istanbul sometime in mid-August).

I would suggest that we keep in touch on this forum (although anyone is also welcome to contact me by email at: topher_germany@hotmail.com - the gap between "topher" and "germany" is actually an underline "_" ), as it is a bit early to make definite plans right now.

I don't about you guys, but at the moment I'm extremely busy building a bike for the trip (an r100GS), trying to sort out visas, jabs etc and organising sponsorship/ funding for a project in Nepal. Apart from the ride there and back, the purpose of my trip is to spend a few weeks teaching/ observing at school near Bhojpur in eastern Nepal where I hope to help to establish a long term link to the school that I currently teach at in Germany.

Hope we can work something out!

Cheers

Chris

I'll be in Varanasi (North India) end of May. Not sure when my bike will arrive in Kolkata /Calcutta. I've got a 6 month visa which I might extend. I also want to see China and SE Asia. I don't have any set plans and I'm completely open to doing rides since that's what I'm doing there.

I was very close to taking my SR500 RTW but it just made too much sense.

Hi Gents,
I'll be leaving the Uk on the 24th May, looking at being in Turkey in July to pick up my Iranian Visa. Then heading into Pakistan, India, Nepal, Thailand ETC. I'll be travelling on a R100GSPD which I'm just finishing off the modifications at the moment. see you on the road!
