HorizonsUnlimited description:

"The road to Koki Jar is fine but at the end of the trip both the car and the driver will be destroyed" - advice from a local.

Well, it wasn't a car - it was bikes, a KLE500 and a KTM990 and, by the end of the trip, the KTM was pretty much trashed. On their 3rd epic trip together, Lawrence Bransby and his son Gareth head for the notorious Pamir Highway, the second highest "highway" in the world tucked deep in the Pamir Mountains of Central Asia then further south along the remote Wakhan Corridor along the Afghan and Chinese borders.

For those in the know, this area has roads and tracks that can be defined as "motorcycle adventure travel at its best".

And it didn't disappoint.

If you enjoyed "There are no fat people in Morocco" and "Venture into Russia - Three Motorcycle Journeys", you'll love this third adventure motorcycle travelogue by Lawrence Bransby.
