Yeah, I was trying to get to India and Nepal this year but I had to choose between going to India or being in Lima for Kathe's birthday.
I hope to go next year at this time. I still think it would be so cool to get an Enfield and ride the high passes in the Himalayas.

Yes, the Enfield is certainly a looker.
But there was another looker in Lima waiting for me.
Can you blame me?
I am using her computer while she is away.
Found these pictures there.
I hope she won't mind

Besides, I need something to post until I get a moto back between my legs

You see, I just booked 4 nights at an all inclusive resort in Punta Cana Dominican Republic. We leave in 2 days.

After that, I am hoping to head back to So California for a week or so. Maybe I will have time for a little ride on one of my street bikes there if the batteries are not all dead.

After that, maybe some more living large and fun in the sun. And then it is off to SE Asia and living out of a tent again by myself
So tell me which one and I will get it all charged up and ready to ride.

What about your GPS? Seems like you have been pretty reliant on the thing. Do you have a mounting idea? or are you not bringing it?

And that is sort of my plan. If some guys try to steal my BMW at gun point, I will let the bike fall to the ground and watch them try to pick it up from a safe distance. See, that is the reason why I carry so much wine with me. It is for ballast.

But I don't think the same plan will work for the Honda.

Ha!
I figured you have been riding them all considering you are holding the keys while I am away

I actually like it because it gives me a reason to question myself.
But at this moment, I am excited about the thought of being on a Honda CRF250. I am hoping to do most of SE Asia on this bike.
And yes, I know it will cost me more but I don't think I could survive the entire ride on a crappy 125.
I will most likely have to get a crappy bike in Indonesia and/or Vietnam and that is ok. I will be looking forward to a change there as a crappy little bike will be a whole new adventure
I am only bringing 4 shirts, one pants, one shorts and a swimsuit. I have my electronic stuff and my camping stuff (just a smaller tent with no fly, lightweight sleeping bag, pad and of course my hammock and rain fly. I will have a few tools and parts like a spare tube. And that's about it.
I will look forward to seeing your family in Laos soon.
Thanks
Actually, on the Thai side of the border, though only just. Let me know if/when you have plans to be in north Thailand.

I am hoping to use the same Garmin unit. I love it. I think it came with a universal handlebar mount. It is somewhere in the storage container I hope. I will probably spend a day looking for that and some other stuff to bring with me. Maybe you can help and we can dip in to the wine cabinet

It is amazing how quickly people with guns arrived on the scene.
I noticed traveling around the world, the places with the most police officers visibly present were the places that were the least safe to be.
I am wondering why the kid trying to steal the guy's moto didn't get up.

he didn't got up because he was shot twice...., but yeah...i was wondering the same thing...lot's of police arrived way before any ambulance.
But on the other hand, the robber would have shot the guy on the bike without flickering, that's why the police in Brazil reacts like that...it's a real shame :/ great country and great people (mostly of course...)

He didn't get up because he was shot twice by a police officer. Died later.
