Yes, I noticed that my posting was scant. Here is a more detailed story.
Bikes: (a) BMW R60/7 – 1976 – 600cc- ridden by me (b) BMW R80 GS – 1991 – 800cc (c) BMW R1150 GS-2000
Since we heard that fuel is adulterated so we carried our own, in our jeep trailing behind us. About 300 liters.
Distance from DHA to PC Gawadar 735 km with no detours. Time taken 10 hrs. incl. 2 fuel ups and 1 flat tyre…and lunch/pee breaks. Basically leisurely.
Fun starts as soon as we hit the costal highway about 2-3 hrs out of Karachi. Fantastic work, in my opinion international level. There’s a place, Buzzi Top. Absolutely gorgeous curves and scenery. Lasts for about 1 hrs at 30-40 kmph. Lots of fun.
The views are so hauntingly beautiful. Endless vastness of absolutely nothing!
So very desolate – nothing in sight. Cruising at 120km….for long periods of time… …and no one overtakes you.
I think the myths about security etc are baseless – even at night…cos on the way back we rode about 3 hours in darkness. The local people we ran into enroute and in Gawadar, were kind and accommodating and hospitable.
Want to do along trip in the north someday. I am sure would be fun.
