I'm wondering if it will soon become easy for a Brit on a motorbike to ride Iran. I understand that people from the UK (and USA) need to be escorted at the moment, I'm hoping that might change. I guess one would still need a Carnet de Passage for the bike, and local insurance, and visa invitation, etc. I don't think that the UK is one of these countries - "officials are trying to remove obstacles for tourists and issue visas on arrival at the airport in Tehran for nationals of 190 countries" - Hürriyet Daily News I would be very interested in hearing any up-to-date information on this. If it's too much hassle, I'll just stick with Turkey-Georgia-Armenia next year.
