    Default Romanian Salute !

    dear friends from Pakistan

    My name is Dan POPESCU, the president of Romanian Motorcyclist Association. From one month we work to set up a "Go East Trip" from Romania to Myanmar, following the route:
    Romania;Bulgaria;Turkey;Iran;Pakistan;India;Nepal; Bhutan;Bangladesh;Myanmar
    and return:
    Myanmar;India;Pakistan;Iran;Turkey;Bulgaria;Romani a

    The goal of this trip is to scout the area for identify the possibilities to travel for the Romanian Motorcyclist Groups. I intend to travel riding my Aprilia Pegaso 650 bike alone, and maybe with a technical backup assured by a Jeep Wrangler drive by friends. The target os to visit all the above countries very fast (up to 1000 km per day) and to fulfill all distance in less than 6 weeks, including brakes and resting.
    I was in a very interesting meeting at the Embassy of Pakistan with His Excellency the Pakistan Ambassador who is a very nice person.
    Please let me know about the fastest route to cross Pakistan from Iranian border (Taftan) to Sialkot and Lahore.

    all the best and keep connected
    your friend,
    Dan Popescu

    I'm pretty sure no, you will not find a dedicated service/parts shop and technical representatives neither.

    Though there are some good mechanics, but I've never seen their dealership/representation in any of the major cities.

    the unbelievable time loosing for transit visa here at Pakistan Embassy in Bucharest/Romania. I put the papers in April and have not an answer. At every visit and telephone get an answer like: "We get no permission for you yet, but will come soon". Meanwhile the summer hot arrive, in India I will get exactly the monsoon season but I still want to ride east up to Bangladesh. Now I understand that Bangladesh and Pakistan was a single country, very interesting because between was another one, India.
    I just wait for visa to start riding, never-mind the temperature in the Iran and Pakistan desert areas.
    keep you informed

    Hi Dan,

    Which embassy have you put your papers through to? They will take ages if you don't have a letter of invitation as such. Please give me the name of the person you're speaking to, and let me know whether you've put your papers through a visa express service (such as in France), or whether you've actually gone to the embassy yourself to get it sorted. I will try to speed it up for you.

    Cheers.
    Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again, but life goes on.

    We spoke with his excellency the Ambassador of Pakistan in Bucharest himself and also with the consul. They are bought very nice people and we speak every few days. They assure me the papers was send so many month ago but receive nothing so far.
    The papers/document file contain also an official paper from Romanian Motorcycle Association (I am the president of the association). Inside I wrote that my trip is the evaluation one, because starting from next year we intend to make a expedition trip with 15-20 motorcyclist to visit the same track I try to make this year: Romania, Turcia, Iran, Pakistan, India, Nepal, and back. This expedition will be every year. Maybe also to China, in the future.
    If I understand well the problem is not here to the embassy, is some inside the headquarters maybe Ministry of Interior or Ministry for Foreign Affairs, or equivalent.
    In the same situation is also another motorcyclist from Romania who also want to travel via Pakistan to Nepal to another destination, but have the same problem.

    the Pakistan Embassy in Bucharest have the coordinates:

    Barbu Delavrancea Street nr. 22, Bucharest, Sector 1, ROMANIA
    Telefon: 004021 318.78.73 / 004021 318.78.76
    Fax: 004021 318.78.74
    E-mail: parepbucharest@live.com

    my application form is in the name:
    Dan Popescu
    the president,
    Romanian Motorcyclists Association

    my intention is to spend 1 week in the way east and 3-4 days in the way back home. But like I told, this is just a evaluation ride.
    Next year, with a large group of motorcyclists we intend to spend more time in Pakistan, including north mountain area close to China border.
    all the best

    dear friends from Pakistan, because the very long time we wait for a positive answer from the Embassy, but the answer was never seen so far, we decide to change the destination of the EuroAsia Tour 2010 to Siberia, Russia. The destination of the expedition is now Magadan, the Russian port to Pacific Ocean, and the way will be go-come back maybe using the same route, or approximative.
    Maybe next year will be better.
    all the best
    Dan

    nooooo damn it! i'm sorry to hear man some people here in the administrative sector are very dull and slow in getting work done. :/ i was looking forward to your tour of Pakistan and how you viewed it.. after the slow pathetic paperwork is done then upon visitation you would've found the people very hospitable.

    best of luck on your trip to Russia and do think about visiting Pakistan again, I think one year is sufficient for the idiots to process half of the visa application
