    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

    you may want to keep a Plan B for entering Pakistan. If Quetta seems risky closer to the date you arrive in Iran, you may head for Bander Abbass and ship your bike to Karachi instead (not that Karachi is any safer) You may be able to find a lot of bike parts in Quetta and even in Iran. (Heavy bikes are smuggled via that route). Have you found out about the customs formalities of bringing a bike back? What is the future of this bike? Do you plan to keep it in Pakistan or eventually re-export it to the US? Either of the two may be expensive so consider your options or ask someone in Pakistan to work out an arrangement BEFORE you arrive at the border. You wouldn't want to be stranded in Zahidan while this is being done.

This young man is undertaking a 40k km journey...let it be his 'shouq'...In the process he generates publicity for the country, that is nothing but positive.

    We all need to do our bit to promote the good name of our country. As a Pakistani who lives abroad, trust me, we are very sensitive to the image of Pakistan that is projected abroad. For my part, I feel great pleasure when I fly a Pakistani flag on my truck art beetle at car shows across north America. 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 put across.

Pakistan ka image jab promote hoga jab islam pe amal karke unko apne buland akhlaq se ye samjhain ke islam kitna azeem he jaise ke hamare tableegi bhai karte he jiski waja se buhat sare log islam lee aye he europian countries me.

    Me apko aik waqia batata hu. Mera bhai 4-5 yrs pehle aik saal ke liye tableegh jamaat me gaya Brazil. Waha aik bank me translator ke liye bank walo ne aik aurat professor jo english jaanti thi bulaya. Usne aakar handshake ke liye haath agay kiya. To in tableegh walo ne usko bola ke hum musalman he aur apni bivi ke ilawa kisi gair aurat se hath nai milatay. Ap yaqeen karein wo aurat literally ronay lagi aur keh rahi thi ke ap kitne azeem log he aur apka islam kitna azeem religion he jo aurat ko itni izzat deta he. Ye kya ke angraizo ke sath camp kiya phir raat ko unko hug karke so gae. Is se kya islam promote hua ap bata de?
    Isi tara Germany me tableeg walay gaye. Phir wapsi karachi me meri unse mulaqaat hui aik masjid me. Un logo ne bataya ke jab hum sunnat libas pehen kar road pe jaate the to literally traffic ruk jati aur log dekhte ke ye konsi makhlooq he. Sirf unke libaas se impress hokar buhat log musalman huay.
    aisay hi aur hazaaro waqiat he jo me apko batao to ap hiraaan ho jao ge. So mere bhai hame aise logo ki zarurat he jo Islam ki azmat unke saamne peesh kare. Is se Islam ka aur pakistan ka bhi image improve hoga. Ap kya kehte hain is baray me? Thanday dimaag se soche.
    Are you for real my friend?

    People do not convert to a certain faith just due to someone's attire or behavior with opposite gender, its much more than that, but that's a different topic altogether & I am probably not the most qualified person to debate on that.

    What I ask of you is to at-least recognize & acknowledge; that all of us (Pakwheelers) are putting up with your opinions, why not learn to respect others opinions & beliefs too?

    If you are not able to or not willing to understand his point of view & reasons to go on this audacious adventure, no issues, just acknowledge the effort & sheer amount of adventure & try to enjoy it.

    I mean we all are here because of our love for all things wheels

    You can plan a tableeghi road trip around the world, a lot of people will support & respect you, including me, just like we are appreciate what Moin is doing.

    I remained a silent user of Pakwheels since long time, I never supposed to join this forum errr however your thread literally gave me strength to terminate my silence and join you brothers.

    I have no words to describe my spirit you left me speechless. MashaAllah you are doing the great thing for the sake of our motherland. May Allah resolve all of your exciting journey difficulties. You reach safe and sound to your every destination. Don’t worry about any bad thing, nothing is going to wrong with you and your ride InshAllah due to our prayers though you are fully covered with your mother & family prayers and let me say there is no comparison between our and a mother prayers.

    I would like to request you before riding please read Journey prayer 3 times (safar ki duwa) and Ayat ul kursi.

    About tour stunning snaps and videos from which we are going to see world from your eyes only these verses arise in my mind.

    "So which of your Lord's favours will you deny?"
    "Aur tum apne RAB ki kon kon c naimaton ko jutlao gey?"
