Hi all. Feel free to check out my video from last month's solo motorbiking journey (in 2 parts at the above link). It was my maiden voyage through Isaan and Laos and I absolutely loved it.

PS: The best bike I rented the whole trip was from Jim Barbush, owner of Remote Asia Travel just over the border from Nong Khai (+856 20238 5562 Vientiane Laos). Motorbike Rental is his specialty and he is pretty maticulous with the upkeep of his fleet of bikes. My XR250 was a very reliable and modern machine. Highly recommended.
When in Udon Thani check out Lek Car and Bike rental. Hired a nice Honda Steed 400 for a bit of cruising down to Khon Khan and beyond.
