  6. Nice. Might have to add that to my list. I did Mongolia a few years back by bike and it was one of the best trips I ever had.

  7. I can only dream of a trip like that.
  8. We rode inn Laos last year including to the Plain of Jars sites.
    At site one where the busses go there were about 20 other people, at site two and three we were by ourselves.
    Riding motorbikes has allowed us to experience many places in South East Asia that most tourists miss out on.
    Preparing for seven weeks riding in Vietnam now and can't wait.

  9. If you can save up the coin it's well worth it. You can do trips of around 10 days for $2200 ish if I recall correctly. I highly recommend HART at St Ives in Sydney. Did a one day offroad course with them and it gave me all the skills I needed. Bought all the armour and dirt bike gear really cheap at bikebiz. Previous year's lineups were all very cheap. The dirt bike course taught me a lot and also improved my road riding.
