Pakwheels senior member, lovebikes, has done a 4000 KM journey in 29 days on his Suzuki GS100 going across all the provinces of Pakistan with his starting point being Karachi but, this is a 40,000 KM journey beginning in USA and involves crossing oceans hence Khan estimates spending four-to-five months on the road.
