I am hoping to visit Vietnam,Cambodia,Laos,Thailand, and maybe China in March,April, and May. I've been thinking about it for the last year. I haven't done much besides making a list of places I might like to see. I was just looking at China initially. But when I thought it might not be possible I started looking at the other countries. Then last weekend I went to a HU rally and met a guy that lived in China for 6 years. He said he would help me with my ride in China. So now I have something to focus on. I think I would buy a bike to ride. Then I would sell it and buy another in China. I don't have any rigid time frame. I think I want to be in the Asian countries first before it gets hotter. And I'm told, I don't want to be in China till late April or May. It's too cold. I think the bike I buy in Asia needs to be under 175cc to make paper work at the borders easier. I need to research what is the best bike available for my needs. I haven't looked at shots I might need, if visas need to be issued before I leave home, or state department travel advisory's.
