Pokhara Nepal

So we rode from Kathmandu to Pokhara yesterday on the road which is supposed to be one of the worst in the country and since the average road isnt great you can imagine it was a little fun. It did take us 9 hours to get here but this included 3 stops and it taking an...

Kathmandu Diwali and Some Exploring

So the bike arrived as scheduled and we went down to the Cargo area of the airport in the afternoon but we were told it would not be ready until the following day. We did meet a young guy who was trying to help us out who said we needed to go to the main airport area...

Nepal First Few Days in Kathmandu

We arrived after a fantastic view out of our plane window of the Himalayan mountains poking through the clouds. It was a hell of a site and got us both pretty excited The airport was one of the smallest I have ever seen but it was pretty well organised except that the...

Dubai

Dubai has been great. Very relaxing. The first thing we did was take the bike to KTM. I say the first thing we went the following day after arriving. We also washed all our clothes properly for the first time for over a month including our bike gear. I was so...

Iran

After two days of rest we made our way to the Iran border Cat in full longsleeves and headscarf and under her bike gear. As we got close near Mount Ararat we saw another biker so I decided to pull over and see if he was ok. He was but he was just stopping to take some...

Charity Ride to Tbilisi

So the next morning we woke up and left Istanbul in 2 groups as the 3 BMW riders had to collect their bikes from the service and were going to catch us up. We rode out of Istanbul as 4 bikes and it was nice to be part of a group straight away stopping for a healthy...

Istanbul Turkey

Istanbul We arrive in Istanbul to Spormoto the KTM dealer and importer for Turkey at about 6am and it doesnt open until 9am so we have to wait around. While we are there I put the front end back on the bike and Cat does some of her diary. At about 9.30 a guy turns up...

South West Turkey The Accident

After about 200km we came to the TurkeyBulgaria border. We got no special treatment this time and we did find things to be a little backward. You would queue up get to the front then be told you need to buy a visa at a different window so you would do that queue up...

Ukraine Romania Hungary

Ukraine Well to say the least its an interesting place. The roads are TERRIBLE and VERY dangerous not for any other reason than they are appalling and they lure you into a false sense of security by being great for over for 10 km then suddenly mid corner they run out...

Poland

The following morning we headed east towards Poland. The roads became a bit rougher as we entered Poland but not really bad since I am writing this from Ukraine and these are truly bad roads We headed pretty much south through Poland and found a campsite in Jelenia...
