Motorcycle trip to the Himalayas
My goals for this big trip are:
– never take highways (you simply can’t!)
– ride as much as possible off-road (and probably wet your pants once in a while on the trail with that heavy bike)
– wild camp when possible (if you don’t get disturbed)
– be self-sufficient
– rock climb or perform some mountaineering in every country
I will start my trip in Belgium and ride all the way to the Himalayas. This through the Balkan region where I’ll be riding the TET routes (Trans Euro Trails): an off-road trial all the way through Europe, similar to the Trans America Trail. Following this, I’ll be searching for the finest off-road routes I can find through Greece, Turkey, Iran and the -Stan countries. From Tajikistan I’ll ride to Pakistan (over China), followed by India, Nepal and Bangladesh. I will start the first days of April and ride for 9 months.
