Hello,
Is anyone planning to be crossing Turkey and or Iran during July?
Am crossing Europe now and will reach Turkey in a couple of weeks.
One thing....Batty is not the fastest 2 wheeled beast, and is happiest at around 40mph....see vegibike.com

All best

Hi Harry.
if u have a short break at Istanbul come to the heart of the city called Sultanahmet (BLUE MOSQUE) and ask for Angel's Home Hotel which is only few steps away blue mosque.There, u may see some european/turkish bikers travelling on the same rote with u or also some bikers have a short break in istanbul as u

Hi Frank, just in Gelibolu now and heading east via Goreme, Erzurum and Van...should be nearing Iranian border around first week of July, with 2 weeks to get to Bander in the south. if this is anywhere near you, send me a private note and we can exchange numbers etc.

Good luck if we don't meet this time.

Harry

How did you get on going through Pakistan and Iran? I was hoping to go through from India in a few months time but the visa for Iran seems to be a problem. Is there any way to get through and into Turkey?
Many thanks
Alex

Iran and Pakistan

Hi Alex,
In fact I did not manage to get through Pakistan from Iran. Iran was grt, but have heard that UK has cut diplomatic ties now.
One Guy I heard took a boat from Turkey to Russia, then across the Caspian to the Stans, and then into China , before dropping into the top of Pakistan.

So maybe you could do that in reverse?

Have fun

Harry

Am in Chiang Mai for HUBB meeting...are you here?
