Thoroughly enjoyed this report.
Mass of pictures give a comprehensive image of the countries.
Also liked the black & white additions, adds a different angle.

I read it back to back with RTWDoug's report of his trip through Balkan & Turkey.
There were some parallels in sites visited, roads traveled, leading to photos to compare. Made for enhanced reading.

Excelent report. Iran is a country with great culture and nice people, not than the west is determined to attack, should learn from them.

Not to be overly political, but Advrider contains people that are genuinely interested in ANY country and its people/places. Iran has a very hospitable people as has been noted by other reports and by people I have personally met who have been there.

The "west" is a group of people who want peace like most other cultural centers of the world. And Advers, predominately but not exclusively "western", are likely even more peaceful and respectful of other cultures than most.

I am sure many of us read reports like this to come to a real truth about how a country is, because there are people and there are governments- two totally different things (unfortunately). We care about people, great vistas, and jaw-dropping sights here- of all countries and of all cultures.

Ill enjoy reading this one OP; thanks for the contribution

Hey Followers,

It has been a long time since I posted in this thread.

New bike, new trip, new report! I went from Germany to the Pamir. If you liked this report, then please head on over to the Eastbound, to the Stans report.

Here are a few teaser pictures to whet your appetite:






Cheers,
boarder

I wanted to ask you how your rukka kalahari jacket ended up working out? Did stand up to all the abuse and everything ok?

It's alright. I still use it on occasion. Just really over the "put your rain gear underneath" concept.

For me the most important aspect was the fit. It fit perfectly for me. Your milage will obviously vary.
I still like it for the summer. Well ventilated for this kind of jacket.
The suit was never water proof. Even after sending it in to have it fixed.
