Hope you do not mind me asking, are you working over there, and is it fairly easy to find employment in Cambodia etc.

Photo's coming after some time!!

Yes lot's in the UK on 35mm!!

My brother is trying his best to send them to me; I'm in Lao, taking some time out!!

How do you send photos to this site?

The BMW R80 Tic is NOT a GS; it has the same set up as the R80 RT!

But I went to HPN, in Germany, their early G/S used twin rear shocks, they let me copy their design.

I shot blasted the frame, & stiffed it up a bit, then had it powder coated.

I stripped the engine down to the crank, which was still with manufactures tolerances, then replaced all the seals, bears, drive shaft est. I did the same with the gear box. The front wheel was rebuilt won a 21" rim with stainless steel spokes, the back was also rebuilt with stainless steel spokes, on an 18" rim but off set to take a larger tire. I replaced most of the wiring using light weight high capacity cable.

Finding work

No it's hard, the pay is Very low, but it depends on what you do?

I'm a maniacal Engineer, the locals work for money!!

I did have an organic farm, for a few years, could not make it pay its way!!

It's also a very corrupt country, don't even think of opening a bar!!
