    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

    November 21 update
    Today, 20th of November marked a month since my accident and it was also the fourth time I visited the hospital. I finally discovered that i had a fracture in my right thumb as well. However, it has healed now and doesn't need a plaster anymore due to my amazing negligence. I've been prescribed some pills and a gel for the next 10 days and the doctor said i should be ready to ride after that. Finally!!!

    Default Day 138 - Dont believe everything you see..

    Being at this party/meet-up made me understand for the first time ever the true meaning of "Never judge a book by its cover"

    On the 25th of November, I received a call at 9:30 in the morning with Dan Popescu's voice on the other end of the line telling me that I was invited by the Night Wolfe Romanian Chapter for their annual party held about 115 kilometers from Bucharest. The voice said, "We are coming to pick you up in 20 minutes." It was 9:30 in the morning and the last thing I wanted to do was to get out of bed, but somehow I managed to be dressed and look presentable. Exactly 20 minutes later, I was stuffed into a van full of people wearing leather jackets with a lot of chains and badges all around. I took another look around and saw that I was in the midst of bearded long haired tough-looking men. I knew that I was in for an adventure…. realizing it will be a long one when someone mentioned we would be there for the night and wouldn’t be returning until late in the evening the next day. I was suddenly overwhelmed and apprehension took ahold of me.. I wondered what the hell did I get myself into and was about to stay back.

    As we are leaving Buchrest, someone in the van spots a Harley Davidson store, and suddenly there was so much excitement in the crowd. I actually cannot describe it in words. I was confused, "its just a harley store" why is everyone so happy. Well, i still dont know..

    So… We got to the hotel and everyone started preparing the meeting room. Snacks were followed by more snacks. A few people tried striking conversations with me, but not many people spoke English. After the party, I was invited for a drive up in the mountains with a few fun Bulgarians and Dan Popescu.. It was -3 degrees, but when you're having fun.. you forget to cold. The party went on all night…lasting till 6 the following morning, but i left early around mid-night. I had the best night's sleep in a very very cold room.. haha. The following morning, I was told that we were going to visit an orphanage. I was so surprised to be told that these mean looking bikers were making time to visit these kids. I asked…why are you guys going to an orphanage?! someone replied, telling me that the purpose for this get together was to have everyone who was invited bring a few gifts for little children, and then the following morning hand them out at orphanages. My jaw dropped.. I was confused.... WHAT?!?!? This gang NIGHT WOLVES actually helps people??

    Well, to my pleasant surprise, none.. not a single guy there at the party rode a Harley Davidson or any kind of cruiser 'gangsta' motorcycle. They all had either Honda Hornets or some Enduro/dual sportlike bikes.. and got together a few times a year to help out people around them...

    Isnt that amazing? Something so small can be so meaningful. Im so glad they invited me and that i made an effort to actually go..

    NightWolves is actually a Russian motorcycle gang. Supposedly, they are 100 times more powerful than Hell's Angels. However NW are not involved in any kind of illegal business, their only agenda is to help people around the world.

    "Never judge a book by its cover"



    Harley Davidson showroom in Bucharest.

    Everyone got really excited when they saw the sign so we had to stop.. i yawned at least 385 tims2 in 3 minutes then had to leave the store..

    4:30AM Dan comes over to pick me up and to drive me about 2 hours away to pick up my bike.

    Bike was transported from Arad (where i crashed) to Bucharest in a truck because it couldnt get fully fixed there..


    Would you ever wake up 4 in the morning to drive some stranger 2 hours away??

    Thanks a lot Popescuuuu

    finally we catch up with the truck and by now its 9:30

    40k KM on a sports Bike from USA to LAHORE SOLO Mission -333072

    Trucks parked at its final destination. A warehouse or something where the container would be unloaded and i could then just ride my bike off.. But it wasnt all that easy.. there were a bunch of truck in line to get unloaded before this one and it would take about 3 hours to get our container unloaded.. But Dan already had a plan.
    40k KM on a sports Bike from USA to LAHORE SOLO Mission -333073
    He reversed his van.. i had a few questions marks over my head..

    40k KM on a sports Bike from USA to LAHORE SOLO Mission -333074

    then we find out the bikes on the side
    40k KM on a sports Bike from USA to LAHORE SOLO Mission -333075

    Dan brings his van there No Dan, that wont work. I dont want to see my bike on the ground again, upside down. it will ruin my gas tank..
    40k KM on a sports Bike from USA to LAHORE SOLO Mission -333076

    Dan: you take pictures, let me do what i want to do.
    40k KM on a sports Bike from USA to LAHORE SOLO Mission -333079

    There is no way you can take this bike down there... The bike has no front brakes, a bunch of parts are loose. i was 110% sure the bike will not make it to the van in one piece40k KM on a sports Bike from USA to LAHORE SOLO Mission -333080
    Dan: Relax Mr. Khan i know what im doing..

    40k KM on a sports Bike from USA to LAHORE SOLO Mission -333081
    less than 3 minutes and the bikes is there...

    Finally..
    from here we went to a local mechanic in Buchrest. 2 hours of driving. when we got there his shop wasnt opened yet so we waited in the car for around 2 hours. then finally Sorin the mechanic came, we dropped of the bike and left..
    The Dan said i have some present for you.. He takes me to his office and.....

    40k KM on a sports Bike from USA to LAHORE SOLO Mission -333083

    40k KM on a sports Bike from USA to LAHORE SOLO Mission -333084

    Then he says, "you should wear this so people see you and not crash in you again."
    40k KM on a sports Bike from USA to LAHORE SOLO Mission -333089
