WTA - Malaysia to Mecca

Hi..
introduce my self.. i'm Robby From Indonesia
I'm planing to have a ride from Indonesia to Mecca. From Indonesia i'll shipin my motorcycle to KL first.

the question: if i ride from KL to Mecca, what i need to prepare

FYI i'm using Yamaha Scorpio Z 225CC, maybe it's only produce n sell only in Indonesia. Willing to have a ride with my F800, but i have a dream to accomplish with my Scorpio225..

Thank u for ur attention Bro.. Sist...

Now THAT'S an interesting ride!! I don't think anyone here has done it before so you will be adventuring for real. From KL to Bangkok is no big deal, then you will have to ship the bike since you can't go through Burma (and China isn't worth all the crap they put you through and money they bleed you for).

My info is old, but for a very long time, the easiest place to fly the bike to is Kathmandu- but check www.horizonsunlimited.com for up to date info.

So India-Pakistan- cross to Iran (there is only one border crossing allowed down south) then either take a ferry to UAE or Bahrain or somewhere and onto Saudi or you could go to Turkey, Syria and Jordan (or go back that way). Your passport (and religion I guess) will gain you access to a ride the rest of us can not take.

I can not wait to see the ride report.

You will need to be able to get spares for your bike. You can not be in a hurry, because you might have to stay someplace and wait for spare parts to be shipped to you.

Even with your passport, you can not go through Burma- you have to fly yourself and the bike over it.

Forget about GPS tracks- there is only one main road to Bangkok. Same with most of where you are going. You may have problems traveling in South Pakistan. You will have to travel with soldiers. If it is real bad, you might have to put your bike on a train, but that is no big deal, the train goes right to the Iran border.

BTW you will need a Carnet for your bike. Contact your national Automobile Assoc. for that.

When are you going? It's getting hot ya know. Hajj is mid- November this year. That would be a perfect time (weather wise) to be in Mecca. After that, it actually gets a bit cold (and you Indonisians tend to get cold faster than some of us given the fact that it's never cold where you live). You can't cross East Turkey in the middle of winter (well, I did it by bus once, but I sure wouldn't want to be on a bike doing it).

Thank u Pete

I've asked the lokal automotive organization (IMI:Ikatan Motor Indonesia-red) bout the CARNET and the international License. they asked me to bring my motorcycle to Jakarta (i live in Palembang) for the CARNET administration.

and bout the sparepart, i just starting email the Yamaha manufacture in Indonesia. Ask their support for the sparepart.

Thank u for your information, it's opening my eyes and knowing that my preparation were still far from OK. but in the same time, it make my spirit become stronger (to have a ride to Mecca)

Your bike should be fine if you take it easy on the ol' girl. It's really not THAT far and it is paved the whole way. You still need access to parts though.

I can't wait to see how this works out.

Hi Pete..

My Motorcycle already shiped to KualaLumpur, and now she's hibernate for a while at Hannah's Home.

Still monitoring the malaysian biker who goes to Mecca also this may. try to copycat the course (it's make easier for me to ask some visa hehehe)
