    hi there, i'm planning a trip around all of SE asia in about a year and am doing my best to find out the details about certain things.

    there's so much damned info on this site and i only have limited computer time and limited patience for staring at a screen so i'm asking a couple of direct yet admittedly naive questions.

    1. solo trips in the GT - good or extremely stupid idea?
    2. the borders into vietnam - what is the deal? do they just not allow large bikes in?
    3. how long do the majority of you trek in a day? please give answers for maintained roads and for bad conditions.
    4. i'm planning on using chiang mai as my base early on, getting my motorbike/thai road legs back for about a month and then buying a decent ride. bike shops in CM? any ideas?

    any and all help is appreciated. if you can PM me through the board, go ahead or email me at [email [email protected]][email protected][/email]
