Thank you Alex. Anytime you need infos, just give me a shout.bikesncats;297453 wrote: Well...your itinerary inspired me to incorporate part of your section, including ME basecamp, into my trip from Surin to Switzerland later this summer. I was planning to go by Myanmar then through Bhutan but some of your sections seem very interesting and I'm sure I can organize to leave a month earlier and go by some extra few miles...now that I've seen your trip it would be a shame to leave some of those sections out. I guess it's just a matter of getting all the paperwork done on time...I might be picking your brain a bit on dealing with the Chinese Authorities if you don't mind. Again congrats on a great trip and a job well done. Ride safe. Alex.
The accidents were unfortunate where some could be avoided while the rest were just plain unlucky.pensionist;300843 wrote: wow, what a phantastic trip!
so sorry that accidents disturbed this trip of life.
Could you please advise which software you use to create the movies?

Anyway the video was pieced together by another rider, he uses Power Director

What an adventure! It's truly inspiring.

What's your opinion on this? It would be fun to see a list of technicals: Date/Bike/Incident - that would show which bikes did well and which should have done better.
Or is it just that there were mostly GS-s on that trip so if something failed, chances was it was a GS.
They look so tough with their RTW panniers and various add-ons; and they're great road bikes. But for adventure... is it really just marketing?
The scooters did well as one would expect, and if you'd brought a Honda instead of a Yamaha it wouldn't have broken down in the mud either...these things are indestructible

Awesome trip.!!! And thank you for sharing such a great moment and info.
The whole journey all by your own group? Did you guys engage any local tour guide or something like that? How you guys do your paper work while border crossing from Laos to China?
I'm thinking to visit Kunming, don't mind sharing your experience. TQ.
