    Hello,

    I just arrived with my bike in Bangkok, Thailand. Even if my bike is still at the airport because the customs are closed on the week-end ;)

    I come from France, I'm currently on a world tour, two-up on a KTM 990 Adventure. After 5 months in Africa, 7 in South America and 5 in North America, it's time for 6 months in S-E Asia and India, we're looking forward to it!

    Hopefully I'll get the bike out of the customs tomorrow so we could start a loop in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, and back to Thailand to ship the bike to Nepal. Hopefully we'll bump into some others riders on the road ;)

    Hi there Paul,
    I've changed address in the last month & the Kafe is not so convenient for me.
    The X-Centre is best, but there's a good group of guys & gals who ride & use the Euro Diner for a meeting place now. All good people there too.
    The Kafe is still ok, but I'm not 5 minutes away & there everyday like before. I am now 20-30 minutes away, so it is not that convenient. PM me to meet up when you get here.

    Safe riding

    Can you share your info regarding customs clearance? I.e. how do you temporary import your bike for traveling? Are you paying whatever huge deposits then get 'em back when you leave, or do you have a carnet (if so, which type and how much did it cost you in your country)? I'm researching on how to travel to South-East Asia with my own bike, but so far I'm finding it can be really really expensive, customs-wise.
