    Goodluck with the trip. Please keep us posted. I can't join this trip as I have to be in Lahore around that time.

    I might take this trip in Jan/Feb 2009, if I come to Karachi on my bike. I'm planning a trip to Bahawalpur/Cholistan and might extend it to Karachi.

    I read on the forum somewhere that the quality of fuel available on the way to Gawadar is not dependable . I hope you have the information. By the way, what is the approximate travel time from Karachi to Gawadar (on a motorbike)? Does it have to be a two day ride or we can squeeze it with-in a day.

    thanks buddy

    @asad
    u r right some times they mix lot of things in it and u have to check the sample before u decide to fill your tank but it is not a problem as u always have the option to go to the other shop, yes shop cause there r no pumps and they sell petrol in drums on the highway.
    u can easily do it in a day and thats what i intend to do.

    Don't like the idea of fuel in a drum (BAD experience). When you take the trip, please try to get some information about fuel stations in towns like Ormara and Pasni. They may be a few kms off the highway, but the quality of petrol should be better.

    @uzi602
    Haven't heard of any cool spot in Gawadar, but I have heard about Ormara and it's beautiful sunrise and sunset, no resort though. It's on the way, a little off the main highway. But it depends on one's definition of cool.

    i have traveled on coastal highway no of times and i am sure there r no pumps selling pakistani petrol even in towns like ormara and pasni u have to rely on petrol in drums and it is not as bad as u think cause people use that fuel regularly in their cars all over makran division even the efi ones and it rarely gives any problem,but u have to check the sample every time.
    @uzi
    i agree with asad01, it depends on ones definition of cool. in gawader pc hotel provided the facility to hire jet skis and quad bikes, it was some fun. hope it fits ur definition of cool. but i am not sure about it cause last time i heard that pc hotel was suspending its services for some time due to limited clientele.

    I did this trip in August. Me and 2 others, on bigger bikes, the smallest was mine, a 600cc.

    Its just over 700km and a liesurely ride took us 10 hrs one way.

    The scenery is fabulous and the road fantastic.
    We heard that fuel was an issue so took lots along with us in our 4x4 which follwed with drum full of it.

    Plan B to deal with bad fuel was that we took along a good measure of muslin cloth (makhmal) to be used in many folds acting like a filter.

    Good luck
