Hey everyone, I'm looking for some suggestions on what type of gear you guys have found absolutely necessary while riding through SEA and the rest of the world? What is cheaper or more accessible in the US that I should bring from home and how accessible are other things? I will be traveling for at least 2 years across 6 continents and buying a motorcycle in various countries, so I'm trying to think ahead. What would be most useful everywhere? Thailand is my first stop, I plan on flying into Han Oi from BKK in October, buying my bike and starting the trip from there. Hoping ending in Singapore and selling the bike there or in Malaysia. From there it's onto NZ, OZ, etc. I usually travel light, my main pack is 38L with a small day pack. I don't want to lug a lot of heavy gear all over the world. I've traveled across the US, a portion of Mexico and several Caribbean Islands like this on Suzuki GN250s and 125s. My basic gear list was: Cloths Small toiletries First Aid Head Lamp Electronics (Iphone, GSM cell, Camera, chargers) Pad locks Towel Maps/ Paperwork Hammock Water/Food Misc In saddle bags or additional bag on rack: Patch kit Small foot pump Spare tubes A few spare parts Basic hand tools Tarp Rope Locks Stand For protective gear, I've always just worn a helmet, gloves and padded sunglasses. For a trip like this, what do guys suggest? What am I missing or bringing that is necessary? What should I buy here? Thank you for any advise, this forum is great source of information.
