Hi Graham,

Could it be that you are in touch with Eric Demant in Heilbronn and intending to visit him in May? I've been corresponding with Eric for the last few weeks about modifications to a 100GS that I'm building at the moment with a friend (driveshaft, starter, rear shock, tank........the usual problems). He mentioned that a fellow Englishman called Graham, riding a GSPD, was heading this way in the next few weeks. If that is the case, and you are indeed heading this way (I'm in Rosenheim - between Munich and Salzburg where the Autobahn splits towards Slovenia and Italy) maybe we could arrange to meet up and compare our respective routes. I'm not able to leave until early August but then plan to crack on quite quickly towards India/ Nepal - I'll take my time on the way back.

Best wishes

Chris

Hi Chris,
Yes I'm hoping to meet up with Erich if he's not away, I'm currently trying to arrange my Iranian visa for around the 20th of August, but I'm in no rush as I'm taking a few years out. If you can PM me i can give you my Phone number and we can talk about meeting up?

Hi Graham and Murat,

Murat - I'll send you an email later today and we can discuss timing in more detail. I should be ready to leave Istanbul on 19th August at the latest (earlier if everything runs smoothly with my visas).

Graham - I'm not sure what PM means, but Eric Demant had already sent me your email address before I replied to your post - he thought that it might be useful for us to get in touch. If you don't mind, I'll send you a mail and we can swap phone numbers and try to work something out.

Cheers

Chris

Is it straight forward getting aN Iranian visa in Turkey.Its the only visa I'm worried about.I'd be applying on my New Zealand passport.Is it in Ankara or Istanbul you need to apply?The Pakistan and Indian visas are valid for six months after issue, where as the Iranian is only valid for three, and I was hoping to spend 2- 3 months riding round Europe and Turkey before heading east.I have a wedding in the south of France at the end of June, and was going to return to the UK to get my Iranian visa, but if its easy to get in Turkey,I'll carry on east.

Hi Murat,

I tried to mail you on Tuesday - apparently without success. I've sent the mail again to muratcevik_@hotmail.com - is there a "_" after muratcevik?

Cheers

Chris

p.s. if you don't get a mail - my address is topher_germany@hotmail.com the space between "topher" and "germany" is a "_".

p.p.s I've spoken to Graham and meeting up looks like a real possibility

Hi Tino,

The preparations for my trip are progressing nicely. If you drop me a line on the email address quoted above we could exchange phone numbers and arrange a time to meet up and ride a bit in the alps - as soon as my bike for the trip is finished (2-3 weeks I hope) I'll be riding as much as possible to identify and solve any problems before leaving at the beginning of August.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Cheers

Chris
