Did you get to Suzuka for the F1 race?

It was a good one.

At the very least you could've shown Honda what a modern day dual sport looks like.

Sent from the basement. Hey Ma more meatloaf.

no.. and I was really close also. Tickets were a bit spendy.

I plan on going to the MotoGP in Motegi. While I'm there I'll check out the "Honda Collection Hall". I really want to see the old RC166 (250cc 6 cylinder) and some of the other crazy old hondas.

That's a thread I don't want to miss.

Also, really looking forward to your ride through Thailand. I lived there for two years back in the '70's, in Korat, Udorn Ratchitani and Ubon-Thani. Beautiful place, but I never got far from town. Do you expect to get into Vietnam, Cambodia or Laos?

Yes, yes, yes. and a few more yeses.

I still don't know if I can get into Myanmar with the KTM. So I might be peddling some this winter.

I don't want to pay bribes. Bribes are usually demanded when the officer is corrupt. He wants the cash for his pocket not for what you did "wrong". Since you are a foreigner, you are an easy target. Make a scene, don't pay and most of the time they will let you go. Azerbaijan was the only country I had problems. You can also take out your phone and tell the police you are calling the US embassy. I wish I would have know that trick in Az. You live and you learn.

My photos from 2005 of the Motegi MotoGP parking lot and the Honda Museum.

Here is the Honda EXP-2 for a teaser.

Yeah I know right. The two longest running ride reports I've followed. That would be just great.

I'm an American living/working in North East Vietnam. I'm in Cẩm Phả in Quang Ninh province. I'm also a bleed-orange KTM guy but haven't been able to find one here so I had to settle for something else. I have a Honda XR 250 and my wife has a TTR 250. I have a 300 2T back in Hawaii for the dirt and I just sold my 2013 KTM500EXC with motard wheels in July before coming here.


Let me know if you make it over this way. Maybe I can take a few days off and ride a little with you. Or we can at least have a some bia hoi (draft beer) if the timing doesn't work out.

I follow your thread pretty consistently. My dream is to "ride home". Our home base is Hawaii so I want to try to ride across Asia, Europe, and North America to the West coast once our time here is done (at least another three years). We hope to ride around SE Asia in the mean time as we get time.
