Ride the Himalayas!! Pakistan 2019!!

BARFistan 2019

2018 was a lot of fun, I had riders from Switzerland, France and USA. We went around, explored new valleys, new roads and most importantly new people. I cant wait for the 2019 season to come already!

Hopefully those of you who were following "BARFistan 2013, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18" recognized that it was a great opportunity to eliminate some of the misconceptions most have about Pakistan.

The project was not solely focused on Pakistan though, or even motorcycles as a matter of fact. It was about adventure, getting out of the safety cocoon and familiarity of a 9 to 5 lifestyle and braving a land that youíve seen portrayed as a war-zone. Iíve want to create more opportunities for you all to explore the hidden beauty of Pakistanís many cultures, and have a life-changing experience (without breaking the bank and while having the best tour-guide youíll ever have, me! With 2019 Riding season around the corner and BARFistan being wildly successful for the last 6 years, Iíd like to host Barfers again this summer.



For 2019 I'd like to accommodate each and everyone one of you so Iíve created the tour dates below, but if you cannot make any of these and *really* want to come, email me at ADifferentAgenda@gmail.com and Iíll do my best to work with you on your dates. website is up and running if you'd like to read some more www.RideTheKKH.com

Budman has been helping me out with this and you've probably noticed sponsored banners running on BARF - Thanks BUD!
For every rider from BARF.. % will be donated to BARF because this is where friends become family and this place really has given me more than it has taken.

Iíve calculated the costs to be $1250 per week.

The $1250 per week covers: Food/Meals - Motorcycle rental - Fuel for the entire journey - Motorcycle maintenance during the journey (oil changes/filters/fluids/plugs) - Support vehicle (you won't have to carry luggage on the bike with you) - Hotels (shared room) - Camping equipment - All toll and ferry charges - 2 helpers who will help you with everything from riding your motorcycle when you're tired to giving you a massage on top of the Himalayas..

Not included: - Your airfare (ranges from $800 to 1200)- Visa fees (approx.. $120 for an American citizen) - Insurance costs (optional) - Bottled water (cheap!). You'll also have to pay for the parts if you crash your bike. The bike is about $1200 brand new so if you throw the bike off the mountain or total it, thatíll be the extent of your liability (Small crashes dont matter, thats on me). Any other personal expenses you choose to incur (shopping, beer/wine, tips etc)

Need more convincing??? Check out these videos: Riding with a 70 year old Aussie and BARF in Pakistan

Somehow i doubt getting it there and back is cheaper than renting a $1200 motorcycle.

Not sure how to pull this off with a 3 yo. The time off work and getting there is the easy part.

You want to save a little bit of money or you want an awesome epic adventure?
Get some cool pics for the Photos of your bike on location thread.

You are thinking of Afghanistan. This is exactly why Moin does these tours; to repair the western misunderstanding of Pakistan and its people. Except for the north west. Stay away from there.
