The plan is to set off from Gattieres France 2-up on the bike on the 2nd week of April. With my missus Lydia, we’ll slowly ride our way across Eastern Europe into Istanbul. From there she returns to France and I continue the journey following the Silkroad eastwards into Central Asia, Western China, up the Korakoram Highway into Pakistan, India, Nepal. Then fly both bike and myself from there to Bangkok Thailand.

Hoping for the best without any major incident, I should arrive in Segamat Malaysia by end July. The family will be reunited there, and I will take sometime away from the bike, before continuing the 2nd leg journey in Jan 09 to Indonesia and Australia.
