    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

    Default Day 15

    Today I toured around Yellowstone National Park. I had to stop to take a picture with the Lulu Pass board, haha.

    These some pictures of the mud volcano in Yellowstone, it smelled of rotten eggs. I wonder why people drive thousands of miles just to smell rotten eggs. Well I too sadly rode 3000 miles to see this, YES i reached my 3000 mile mark today!

    I camped at Yellowstone for the night and I almost froze to death. Of course I'm not equipped with the right gear. When I woke up I saw ice all over the bike. Pictures don't do justice, it was actually a layer of ice. I had to scrape it off the seat and it still was cold for the next 30 minutes, haha.

    Also got a chance to see the Old Faithful geyser. It's an eruption of boiling water that can shoot 3,700 to 8,400 US gallons of water to a height of 106 to 185 feet (32 to 56 m) lasting from 1.5 to 5 minutes. The eruptions occur an average of 90 minutes apart today.

    Default day 16

    The last 150 miles seemed like a week and a half. It felt like 50 hair dryers were turned on to the max heat and stuck under my clothes. My helmet was about to fry my brain, I was feeling dizzy and nauseous, and there was no sign of any kind of shade or maybe even a tree, nothing at all. Straight boring road, the sun, and myself.

    Only 175 more miles to go in this heat, ONLY.

    Default Bee BEe

    So earlier today, while I was riding at 80 mph in the middle of nowhere in Nebraska, I got stung by a bee. I don't know how it got through my jacket, but it stung me in the stomach. I pulled over and noticed it began to swell so I put some ice on it.

    Now I'm back on the road headed to Omaha, Nebraska where I will be meeting up with a group of Pakistanis and staying for the night.

    Btw, my Spot GPS battery died and I can't find lithium-ion replacement batteries. Hopefully in Omaha I can get some.

    OMG..someone needs to give you a quick lesson on birds and bees and the mysterious swelling on the stomach. An icepack usually won't help much..tsk tsk tsk.

    If your bike dies, it will be very VERY disappointing. What will you do, buy a new bike?

    Default 30 miles from chicago

    This kept happening throughout the day today. When I was about 30 miles from chicago bike just completely went out. It was i think around 10:30 All the lights, the gauges everything went out. I pulled over to the side, stood there for a while tried a few different things nothing would work. Then tried push starting in 2nd gear, not even a sound, nothing at all.
    After 4-5 tries it suddenly started running perfectly. 5 mins later same thing again and it started to rain really hard. Even in the video you can see thunder lightening haha Fun times

    I am no bike expert but I do maintain Volkswagen's so I'll add my 2 cents worth here. From what you have described and the video clip it looks like an electrical issue and that too, nothing very serious. I have no clue how the wiring on the bike is laid out but as you said the lights and everything goes out I would think the problem is very close to the battery or even the ignition switch.

    I would suggest you take a break in Chicago and get this fixed before you leave. Do you have a place to stay in Chicago?
