Very interesting Story from our friends at the Old Bike Club Poland, from Marcin Klimczak.

From Poland to Shanghai on a BSA G34-14 V-Twin
Halina and Stanislaw Bujakowski were living in Druskininkai, where they’ve met and get married in August 1934. After their marriage, Halina and Stanislaw began an extraordinary journey. Its aim was the farthest point on the map achievable on a motorcycle, from their home in Druskininkai, Poland to Shanghai, China. Their route took them through Europe, Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Persia, India, Burma, Indo-China and finally China. They started the journey on 19th August 1934 with a BSA motorcycle G34-14 model and a sidecar. Stanislaw led motorcycle, Halina was sitting in a basket. With her lap typewriter, she kept a journal as well as sending travel logs back to the national magazines in the form of reports. After returning to Poland in 1937, Halina collected them and wrote chronicle from expedition which hasn’t been released until the 2011.

Fortunately 70 years later, manustcripts were rediscovered and published as a book “My boy, motorcycle and me.
From Druskininkai to Shanghai 1934-1936” edited by Lukasz Wierzbicki.
