    We are looking for bikes larger than 125 or 250 for 2ups in LP without the guide for a week. Any contacts appreciated.

    Thanks for taking the time to share this resource. We did contact them and it’s been several days and they have not got back with us... we assumed they were out on the trail. Fingers crossed because they seem to be the only people with big bikes.
    Cool! Thanks!

    Jim or James... just connected with us with 400cc bikes. We are on our way to some fun! And he will even deliver the bikes. Awesome!
    Thanks again for all the help!

    The 400s were not registered. I guess we are in 250s. I need to source a GPS for some remote rides.

    Out of Luang Prabang a great guy named Chris shared a few daze with us. He is the man to reach out to for any serious riding in Laos. He speaks the local language and enjoys a few cold ones at the end of the day. We had a blast! PM me if you want more info.
    Thanks Chris!!

    We did. So much so I think I will go back for a 10 day ride soon. The people were great and there are so many cool little places to explore. Next time I’ll bring my real camera and have some fun shooting the indigenous groups and the amazing landscapes.
