south-east-asia: do you want to meet a german couple, that is riding around the world

Hi!


We are a German couple riding around the world for allmost 2.5 years now.
In mid october we´ll ship our bikes to East Timor. During the next six month we plan to explore Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia.
MAYBE Myanmar, Singapore and Brunei, too.



The most important and enjoyable thing about our journey is to meet fellow minded local bike riders/travellers!


If you are interested to meet us, just drop us a message. We would love to stay with you for a night or two and swap some traveller´s stories or talk about bikes or what ever!


Furthermore we are very interested in the motorcycle club scene. I work as a freelancer for THE german MC-magazine (bikers news) and I plan to write an articel about the MC/biker-scene in south-east-asia.
Therefore we would welcome any chance to get an idea of motorcycle club life or to attend motorcycle meetings in your country.

By the way: how do I have to imagine a motorcycle rally here? Is it like in Europe, where many riders gather somewhere in the nature and camp there? At night there´s usually some entertainment programm. How about your country?


Cheers


Panny

Hi Panny, my wife and I will be in Thailand / Cambodia / Myanmar in December. Probably too early to meet up I guess.

Hi Martin,

unfortunately we won´t make it up there for December. At least I think so.

Are you going to Myanmar by bike?

Cheers

Panny

Probably not since we'll only be in that area for five weeks and flying our bike out is too expensive. We were thinking of renting a 125cc scooter in Thailand, they're dirt cheap at roughly 5-8€/day but from what I was told you can't take rentals across any border at all. Thus, we'll probably have to cross the Myanmar border on foot just like the Cambodian border.
