    Ok, let me get my stamp out, and.....BA! I'm in. Great read and true adventure spirit. Ride on nathan, ride on, let mopeds rule!!! Love the pics too, different style. The market place one looks surreal, artsy. The slow shutter speed has Dot dialed in right and the rest is blurred by motion; kind of like a "time out". I really like it. Thanks for sharing.

    Great photos, great adventure. Have a blast in SE Asia, the people, food, and cheap prices don't get much better anywhere else in the world. Good luck, we are all cheering you on.

    This is exactly how you do it. I met a guy in Argentina who rode a moped there from Alaska. It can be done. Check these chicks out : http://www.tuktotheroad.co.uk/index.html

    If you are not already LIVING at www.horizonsunimited.com you should be- it makes things much easier. And contact the HU communities wherever you go. I met the coolest people that way.

    Keep up the good work man!

    That was the first motorbike I had too, a 1971 Honda Trail 90, hard to imagine it going on such a long journey, but the bike will always have a special mystique for me, the legendary Honda trail bike that I am so sad that we can't buy new here in the USA anymore. I am enjoying your report already and look forward to seeing how you progress along the way. True adventure here! Best of luck.
