It's not the way I wanted to do it. But it seems to be the right way for me. To difficult to take foreign owned bikes into Vietnam, China, and now Thailand. And I won't be here long term. I fly home from Beijing April 15. I've been in Thailand and Vietnam for 18 days with my wife and a friend. They fly home tomorrow. I am renting a 1 year old 150cc Honda for 3-4 days from Phung Motorbikes in Hanoi. I will ride north to wherever. When I return the bike, I plan to fly to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Rent there, and ride up to Seim Reap. Nothing is etched in stone-or even in sand. I have visas for Cambodia, Myanmar, and China. If I don't get side tracked or detained for whatever, I will go to Chiang Mai, Thailand, Mandalay, Myanmar, Kunming,China, Chengdu,China, Xian,China, and Beijing, China. That's the general plan. I may meet up with "prince666" in Thailand. We've communicated on an Asian motorcycle forum. He is English, living in China. He will also be going to Kunming and riding to Beijing. We may ride together some. But I will be sightseeing. He will be more dedicated to the ride. We'll see how our schedules line up.
