Hi to you all,
Just was triggered a bit by ededwards' "wanted" ad in wich he reffered to the Karakoram Highway. Was just wandering what other trips were made by fellow retrobikers, a few of mine to start with (..all in the good old days :wink: ).

Norway (to north cape) in 1995
Central Asia (Tashkent to Islamabad) 1996
Iceland 1997
Northern India 1998
Turkey and Iran 1999
Chili and Bolivia 2000

a few pics to get exited

One of my great regrets is that I didn't do more touring with my bike. I cycled a lot and although I travelled well, I never strapped on some panniers and went out into the world on my bike. I don't suppose I ever will now, and I'm very jealous of people like you that took the opportunity when you had (or will have ) it.

Fantastic photos and brings it flooding back...

I was working in Pakistan when I went up the KKH so didn't really need panniers as I just stopped at places I knew . It was a little lonely solo when
I didn't see anyone for a while and couldn't really see where the road was going but I do remember turning a corner to see Rakaposhi straight ahead, perfectly mountain shaped (if you know what I mean) against a perfectly blue sky, sun glinting off the snow. Had to stop for a Coke at the bottom.

Sadly all my photos were lost in our rapid exit - they weren't really exciting, just the Stumpjumper leaning againts a rock with an awe inspiring view in the background. It's strange that it almost seems as if it happened to someone else.......
