    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 use this PW site as a reference to the beauty of my country when I show it to people I know who are not Pakistani - The section is travelling - and all the amazing pictures it has.

    The only reason I got back to PW was that section - its a journey within itself. Being an adventurous person myself, I love to scrape up pieces of history and culture (sometimes nearly get lost too) - And remember our prophets and his companions/relatives teachings - TRAVEL , SEE THE WONDROUS CREATIONS AND THINK HOW COULD THEY BE - it is itself a form of worship.
    I couldn't have explained it better. We are reading off the same page. Inshallah I'll be undertaking the same journey with Billo my 1960 truck art beetle. Fortunately for Moin he can just save up for his journey, pack up and leave. I have to think of my three children's school years, mortgage and a dozen other things before I even reach for the car keys...but God willing, it would happen.

    in this discussion we have jumped a few topics and its getting all muddled.

    Patriotism you have to show...religion you follow, its rules you observe.

    Lets end this discussion as I feel bad that it is taking away the focus off the young man's adventure which is the topic of this thread.

    @Moin ..stay safe in God's protection. You are doing a great job (even if its your own shouq. )

Every1 knows wat has India done in Kashmir. How she has shed blood of innocent kashmiris and wat not it has done. Also remeber gujrat massacre in india. But nobody label them as terrorist. Islam is the only scorn in the eyes of the west.
    live with it - we ourselves as a whole cornered ourselves into the hole by many actions, one of them was issuing passports to non-Pakistanis who later did desctructive stuff.

    Default Day 9

    Hey guys, I finally got a chance to upload day 9 video to YouTube. At the end of day 8 Shane told me to go down south for a 800 kilometer 12 hour detour. Met an older guy in the morning, had an interesting conversation and off I went for day 9 ride. I met a guy named Phil on my way to Calgary and we rode together to his home, where he let me stay for the night. I had fun playing with his little daughter Penelope!

It is my own 'shouq' to bring a Volkswagen decorated in truck art all the way to Canada...but I feel satisfied that general public I come across get to see the peaceful side of our country...the art, the talent of the artisans..lets just say the human side.

    I am 47 and I believe that our generation is spoiled beyond hope. Our real hope is YOU and people like Moin. Please keep this hope alive by positive thinking and giving credit where it is due.
    very well said ... media, the new education system has made sure to put hopelessness in the minds of the future generation ... and exceptions like these are a reminder that we are a brave nation .. we just need believe it

    As there is the famous saying of Our beloved prophet Muhammad (pbuh), about deeds and the underlying intentions, and as this lad Moeen has stated his good intentions hence I pray for his safety and success

    Hey Moin .... I guess i spotted a GOPRO in one of your photos .... but can't see to many pics taken with it on the move. Are you using it only for videos of timed photos as well.
    The possibilities are endles ... all you need is a 4x4
