Home Rider Bike Route Pictures Acknowledgements Visa Stamps

August 1983 - December 1984

The goal was to cover approx. 50,000 KMs in 14 months through 21 countries of Asia, Europe and North America

The original plan was to go ride to Turkey, but because of the Iran-Iraq war, it did not make sense. The detour needed to avoid the war zone would make the trip very lengthy going above the Caspian Sea via Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Russia and Georgia. Finally decided to fly the bike to Istambul, Turkey and start from there.
