    I can see from other posts that there are a few AT riders in SEA. We are currently two AT riders in Laos but the other guy lives halftime in Phnom Phen so he may not count. I've had my bike since 2006. Bought it from an expat in Laos. I’d like to advertise Laos as a destination – the more the...

    This is a great piece of kit that I bought whilst in the States a couple of years ago for $45 (about £30 at the time) but it is available online. Basically it’s an additional fuse box that enables you to quickly and easily power any additional accessories you want to put on your bike. I...

    I had this jacket recommended to me when I had to do an exchange in Hein Gericke on a previous jacket and overall I'm really pleased with it. I guess it may help to describe the type of rider I am and what I am generally looking for in a jacket. I do about 20-25 thousand miles per year and I...

    Ok, have fully recovered from the China trip, and have more or less caught up on everything on the home front. Time to roll baby ! This time I wanted to head over to Laos, and make one final attempt to get to the top of Lima 85. Then head to south Laos, into Cambodia,then end up in Pattaya. The...

    Just wondering what lengths you all go to, to protect your bikes. What size and types of chain and locks do you use. Very interested to hear what has been broken into before, what tools were used (cutters and grinders etc...). Some of you may know how I rant about thieves so maybe checking...

    I was thinking of rubbing the rust off my spokes and giving them some sort of coating to protect them and keep them clean and from rusting again, so figured some sort of plastic or rubber spray might work for that and be a bit more chip proof than using laquer, when I came across this...

    I've know that some people have had problems with their rectifiers going, and was wondering if anyone knows if this is to do with heat they might generate or something else? I don't have this problem myself at the moment, but I'll be putting my bike back together quite soon (finally - thank...

    First Bike on Scene is coordinated by the Northwest Ambulance Service, but they run courses all over the country. I've wanted to do this course for some time, and I've put the details at the bottom. So, I'm going to attempt to organise a course for us in the south of the country (someone up...

    I'm in the process of stripping down the bike I've recently bought (well, stripping it down as far as I feel confident as a newbie - though it's hard showing restraint and for a moment there I was contemplating taking the engine out and having the frame powdercoated :shock:). I've taken the...

    Greeting's all, long time no post :D To cut a long story short me poor old AT is in need of some tender loving care, basically all of my farings are in various states of dis-repair. At the moment trying to see if its' feasible to just run the AT with the front fairing only, essentially to...
