    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.

    This is an epic journey and one needs to have a lot of guts to even think of attempting it.fficeffice" />
    Your crash was sad and nice to see that you have recovered well and your ride seems to be coming together well.
    I can't convince myself from mentioning that your choice of the bike is not right. You should have sold this bike and chose a touring bike for such a big journey.

    The whole aim behind NOT getting a touring bike was that NO ONE has ever done so on a sports bike. This is history in the making...while ur out being mad, travelling the world, any1 can do it on a goldwing...this however is something totally unique!!

    The boys said i could sleep here on the chairs in the electrical room.. amazing hospitality..

    later they thought there is a security camera in that room and they might get in trouble so they moved me to another room that was under construction or something..

    Because while i was standing next to his stall about to ask for a glass of pomegranate juice, a couple suddenly jumped in so i let them go first.. they get their juice then they ask how much it was and the guy said 4 TL (Turkish Lira).. while he gave the couple change i dont know why but i was staring at him with a smile and he looked at me, smiled and gave me a guilty-ish look.. the couple walked away and he whispered, they look rich so 4 Lira for them, you pay 3 Lira.. hahahaha.. too good

    Default Day 150 - Met some more strangers

    The Irani embassy said ill have to wait till friday (2 more days) in Ankara for the visa.. so i started looking for someone to stay with so i could check out of the hotel.. after some research.. my cousin's friends's brothers live in Ankara.. i contacted that cousin and asked her to contact that friend of hers and ask her to ask her brother to give me a call and magically 15 mins later i recieved a call from Sajjad Bhai "Of course you can stay with us come over" i left the hotel, stopped for some lunch as Sajjad bhai was busy at work for a few hours..
