    @ameen and I had quite the adventure. Apprx. 6 months from Scotland all the way to vietnam.
    My fiance joined us in Tajikistan, where we rode 2 up (crashed on the afghan border), recovered - and worked our way through Kyrgyzstan, China, Nepal, India, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam!

    Here's a 12 minute video of the trip that I put together. Most of the footage was @ameen 's - but I wanted something to stare at and get nostalgic before we put together something more cohesive.

    Wow, what a great video and an amazing trip! Some of the places I dream of riding (but at 65 may not have time left for them all). Thanks for posting.

    Video was great and I appreciated the polarsteps as well - went through all of it! Been thinking of a similar trip so thank you for sharing the step by step, lots of insights and tidbits. The paragliding was neat. Hope you guys are all healed up - both your fiance and your hand!
