Fantastic idea about buying the bikes there. Could you give a rough idea as the price of the bikes and the hassle in registering them? Do you plan on selling them at the end of the trip? Good luck...

Thailand

Igor,

Are you now living in Thailand or are you about to begin a new trip? Your KLR trip reasonates with a lot of people and was truly fantastic. Hopefully, we can more of the same in Asia.

Hi Igor,

What a great list of favorite places and things. A real traveler's list of places. Not the usual highlights from guidebooks. Sometimes it is the mix of things that make a place...

It is funny because I chose my ADV name based on my love of the Vasco da Gama soccer team, not the explorer/conqueror for which they are named. I guess it all fits and means something in...
