    Smile 40k KM on a sports Bike from USA to LAHORE SOLO Mission

    Im going to be riding my motorcycle solo from Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco to Lahore, Pakistan.

    Its as unplanned as it could ever be. Im hoping to last 4-5 months on the road. Not sure of the mileage ill going to be doing, probably around 25,000 miles (40,000 km). I have no idea where i will be staying for the nights, have some camping gear but no idea where the camp grounds are. Doing it on the most uncomfortable motorcycle i could find on this planet. A Sport Bike and not a BMW GS1200 haha.

    Its an adventure. Adventures succeed and fail.

    i will be up dating on PakWheels and u can follow me on on website.
    Departure 10th july 2011

I wish I could plan a trip like that. Your journey paves way for many to follow in your lead. Its about Mental Strength. First you conquer your challenge in your mind then implent a concrete plan, you have shown that mental strength can indeed conquer a challenge size of the tallest mountain.

    Default The Italian ordeal. The Police was determined to put an end to my ADifferentAgenda,

    On the 13th of September, at 11 a.m., I left Rome for Bologna. It was a perfect sunny day so I decided to take the back roads passing by Perugia, then onto Ancona, and finally reaching Bologna around 8pm. As usual, I roamed around for a couples hours looking for a cheap hostel, finally finding one and lucked out because the guy at the reception also had a Honda CBR that he raced at the track so he gave me a little discount. He told me to park right across the street at the designated motorcycle parking, so I followed his directions and parked exactly where he ask me to. Later i walked around, got dinner, and went to sleep. I woke up the next day around 10ish, showered, and got ready to leave. As I wandered downstairs to grab some free breakfast, I decided to take a quick peek at my beloved bike. I made my way outside and when I turned the corner, the whole city had turned upside down. It was a Friday and a bunch of streets near the hostel were closed off for a street fair. I walked towards my bike to see that tents had been set up on either sides of the bike and about 8-9 Italian police officers standing around my bike talking. Of course I didn't like what i saw, so i quickly jumped into the middle of the circle and said, "Thats my bike! Whats the issue??"…. and that was my first mistake. The policemen would probably have left after 10-15 mins if i had waited, and I could have smuggled my bike out of there. Being in the moment, I had no time to think and in a split decision, decided to jump in to bail my bike out. Well….BAD IDEA! The Police asked me for my driver's license, insurance, and the title of the bike. I went to get all three from my room and waited for the okay…all set…good to go…but it never came. Little did i know, the insurance i had expired 2 days earlier and instead of everything being alright, the officer turned my world upside down and said they will have to tow my bike. I found out that by having a bike on the street without insurance, I had to pay 800 EUROS on the spot cash, or else it would be towed. On top of the costly ticket, because i had a California license plate, I wasn’t allowed to take the bike till i payed in CASH. 800EUROS compared to my measly U.S. currency would have definitely have drained my account right then and there. My world was no longer upside down… I was now falling down a dark hole. I tried negotiating, but was getting nowhere. Suddenly..I had an epiphany and decided to change my story. I told them that I had actually bought insurance for two months, and had no idea why it had already expired. I tried to convince the officer for about 15 minutes that it wasn’t my fault and she kept telling me that she didnt care and all she wants is a paper saying that I was insured right now. Because I had blamed the insurance company for messing up, she let me call them to clear everything up. I ran to my room and called Arisa Insurance Group in Luxemburg. Daniel Diewerge picked up the phone, and the first question i ask I was, "Do you speak English?" I was so sure he'd reply with a no, but lo and behold… it was my lucky day! he DID speak english and I proceeded to ask him if I was able to renew my insurance that had expired 2 days earlier. I was told that I could do it over the phone but would have to transfer money from an Italian bank account and unfortunately since it was friday, they wouldn’t recieve money till monday and that was the soonest I would get insurance paper work. I ask him a few times if there is anything he could do, coming close to begging, but everything seemed impossible. I tried to explain to him my situation, telling him about ADifferentAgend, and that ill have to pay 800 EURO right now if i dont have insurance the Police is outside my room. He replied, "Sir, i can't do anything until you send the money. I'll get in trouble otherwise." When he said those magic words.. "I will get in trouble if i do",. I knew that he could issue insurance without the bank transfer and it was only a matter of making him trust me somehow. The hole I was falling into got more and more shallow, and I saw light at the end of the tunnel. After 5 more minutes of trying to convince him that i was an honest guy, i almost gave up when he said there was nothing else that he could do. I was about the shut the phone when PAYPAL came to my mind. I asked him if he used Paypal, the online money transfer service..HE DID! I the proceeded to ask him if i could send him money so he could then transfer to Arisa the insurance company and in this way he could trust me as he would get the money instantly. To my relief, he agreed. I ran down stairs, waited for his email, made the transfer, waited for the paperwork, and in 15 mins I received new insurance paper work. I printed it out and headed towards my CBR. As soon as the officers saw the papers, smiles replaced their stern faces, the conversation turned nice and sweet, and the whole ordeal suddenly ended. Everyone left and I had my bike back. It was already late in the afternoon and too late to go to the Ducati factory by this time. Someday in the future, I'll be back.
