    Hello everyone!

    I've known about this forum for years but for some reason never got round to joining...Anyhow after meeting David Unkovich at my works party last week (I work for Green Discovery) He gave me his GT-Rider card which ushered me on to join the forum and here I am!

    I am 24, from the UK but now living in Vientiane, Laos!

    I've got a 2013 Honda CRF 250 L which I've only had for a month/1000km. I've been riding a bike since I was 14 and since I was 16 on the road and have done many many miles!

    I did a trip with a friend a couple of years ago on Honda Wave 125's from Cha-Am in Thailand and up through Issan, in to Laos and spent a month riding through Laos and then back down in to Thailand. I will post a travel thread up as I'd imagine a few people would be interested in seeing some pics?

    Anyhow here is a pic of my bike after some light off roading near Ban Keun which is about 70km North of Vientiane:

    I know the CRF isn't anything special but I must admit that I do really like it! Plus in Laos you don't have many great options for bikes like in the west. I'm certainly wanting to do a few nice mods such as ECU, Exhaust, handlebars and hand guards etc.... I'd love to go the whole hog with it eventually and fit a 300cc big bore kit and cam etc...

    I'd love to meet up with some fellow members especially people in Vientiane as I don't really know many fellow foreigners so it would be great to meet some new friends!

    Anyhow looking forward to posting away!

    Thanks in advance :D
