I'm also planning on blasting through Europe to Turkey in 2 weeks and then doing a bit of a loop round Syria and Jordan, Iran and then on to the Stans. You guys may be moving a bit faster than me as i'm planning on taking a year to get to Oz.
I'll be leaving in the first week of April so you guys may catch up with me around Iran or the start of the Stans. Let's keep in touch as it sounds like we can meet up somewhere on the road.
I'm based in London and have bought a BMW F800GS to do the trip with.
I was originally thinking about going for the fully load up bike but i must admit i'm veering towards the light travel tactics.
