    Hi my name is Ryan. I have just moved to Phon Hong in the Vientiane district, Lao PDR for the next year - originating from the Kimberley, West Aus.
    I have purchased a XR 250 Baja to get back and forth to Vientiane as well as explore the region. My experience with bikes is limited and thus would appreciate any advice as to a good resource to improve my riding, and keep safe etc. I was intending to buy Motorcycling Excellence 2nd edition - is this a good start?
    With thanks.

    Hi Ryanjames,

    The world wide web vs. a single book - should be a no brainer. Go to google and type in just about anything to do with on or off road riding skills; how to/how not to...and a multitude of info will be yours for the reading. Probably a key here, is to read/ride/read some more and ride some more...and when all else fails - just get on it and do it - and have a great time.[:D][:D]

    Cheers,
    David and Mai

    Try the link below for some tips from the ol GT Rider himself.
    https://www.gt-rider.com/ridingt.html
    the bit you would most likely appreciate is The Smooth Rider tips.
    These may be a help & lots of guys will say that I aint a smooth rider to ride with, but I reckon that.....

    Also if you go to
    http://board.gt-rider.com/topic.asp?TOP ... hichpage=2
    you'll find links to two other excellent sites with heaps of links & tips.
    Work your way through these & you'll be kept busy for quite a while.
