I'm Vincent Schuller, and I drive a 1989 Honda Transalp. This piece is about a solo motorcycle trip I made through the Middle East. I crossed Southern Europe to Iran and returned from Jordan and Syria though Eastern Europe back to Amsterdam. It was my first motorcycle journey, as a matter of fact; I didn't get my motorcycle drivers licence until a few months before I departed. I was totally unfamiliar with motorcycles, I actually started driving one because of the disastrous parking situation in central Amsterdam and traffic jams.

I travelled around 19.000 kilometres through one of the more inflammable but interesting areas we know. I encountered cities right out of the old tales of a thousand and one nights, Lawrence of Arabia and the Bible.

I travelled alone for the greater part, only in Syria was I joined by a German motorcycle traveller for a week. In former travels I had acquainted myself with the cultures and habits of the peoples I was to meet. These travels were done together with a friend and never included transport as free and flexible as a motorcycle.
