    Hello


    We are 2 Canadians traveling RTW. We have a serious bike issue and Looking for help. I have a BMW 650 twin with a broken rear shock. The lower bolt sheared off in Tingri Tibet. The bike was trucked to Shigatze and a weld repair done. This lasted 100 km. My bike is currently being trucked to the Laos border for exit Oct 17. The Manufacturers will warranty and will ship a shock to us anywhere.

    We need somewhere to ship it to as close to the Chinese border as possible (?Luang Prabang), we may need help to truck the bike to that location, and a shop or garage to work on it.

    Thanks so much for any help or advice. We have terrible internet access here so bear with us for replies.

    We have had the offer of a shop and a shipping address so thanks so much Moto Laos! We still will need to transport the bike to Luang Prabang if anyone can help here that would be great. Sara
