Hi,

im looking to do a week - 10 day trip on a rented bike in Kyrgyzstan in June next year.

I’ve no pals with a bike licence sadly, does anyone know where I’d be best placed to potentially find someone who might want to join? 
cheers

Wow, what an amazing trip!

What kind of bike are you planning to hire? Is it going to be strictly tarmac, or dirt tracks as well? I ask because there are some bike-specific and/or off-road forums that have areas where people get together for this kind of trip.

Sounds like an amazing trip....Are there any local m/cycle clubs in your area?  If so, good place to start.  Other than that try advertising in one of the local rags or there's a couple of groups on Facebook if you use it.  I understand the problems you have,  I like touring but most of my mates are just into sport bike riding,  good bunch for a ride out but not into riding across on the continent or going any real distances.  Also try this page, see if it helps 👍 https://www.meetup.com/topics/motorcycle-riding/gb/

@Jakeansell you know how every forum has that goon, the forum joker that isn’t funny… The one that puts his bike in his van to go anywhere, the one that the forum makes fun of and he still just won’t leave..

 

You have just met him…

 

As for trip I wish I could afford it sounds awesome….

@onesea sure if you ask nicely and get yourself a loan  you'll be able to tag along .... just keep your mouth shut for the whole trip ... your bore the fook out of every one otherwise

I know six30 is the butt of a lot of stuff on here, but I nearly choked on my cup of tea due to a advert. 

It advertised something called........ 

......... Luminous six30

 

 

Does he glow in the dark? 😛

Perhaps I'm looking at this from a Asperger's perspective but I can't imagine anything more awkward than teaming up with a complete stranger on such a trip . What if they turn out to be a complete ar*ehole but you only find out when it's too late ?

Shop them as a spy to some demented border officials in some hell hole. Probably work.

Would you choose some narcissistic , empty headed , bimbo who would keep showing off and  falling off their bike , or would you choose the lady on the right ?
