    Hi Steve, watched the DVD again - brilliant. I can imagine it took a lot of work to get the final finished product - all those photos, transitions, music and sound etc. Great!
    Yes I have a RR from my last return epic ride from China to Thailand here and here
    This is my third trip from China to Thailand in the last 3 years (2014, 2015, & 2016). I'll be creating another RR for this latest trip after I return to China in March. This latest planned RR will be somewhat more photo intensive as I did the undertaking a little differently this time round.

    Just found this report. I enjoyed it immensely. Good photos and just the right amount of blah, blah. Thanks Steve, you guys put those bikes to the test and they passed. I used to live in Terrace and your trip has me thinking it is time I jump on the GS and take a little tour back through the area.

    Regards,

    David

    Great report! Where was your 'hot bath' taken? We are riding up from Calgary this summer and if there are hot pools to be had.....

    Cheers & Thanks.

    Liard is why in 14 times up or down the ALCAN we have never driven the casiar hwy, we cant stand missing liard and I hate to backtrack. But next time I drive down I think ill skip Liard and take the casiar.

    I think we'll have to pass on Laird as much as I love hot pools. The salmon glacier (and less traffic calls :-)

    Excellent RR!

    A buddy and I ride very much like you three ride. We've been planning a PHX - Alaska - Phx ride and may try to mirror what you guys rode. Might happen this Aug. Most likely happen next year though. We're on KTM 990s though, so not nearly as cool as you guys!

    I met Steve this year in Romney. Was a true pleasure, he is very easy to talk to and had all kinds of crazy good info. My hats off to all 3 of you, someday...................

    Hey Steve, is that the Bell ADV helmet? If so how are you liking it. I'm thinking of picking one up.

    It's a LS2 Pioneer MX436
    I like how light it is, It moves a lot of air so it is a little noisy.
    I don't like the way it squeezes my cheeks so I can't eat anything while riding.
    It's not my best helmet that I have my Sena on. They are Shiro.
