sorry neebe with questions. don't know what to do!!
Hello! first off it's great to be here! glad I finaly found this site!
I live in Thailand, been here for 4 months after getting sick of the rat race in the USA so I sold everthing I won and put the rest on the curb and now here I am..
I lived in downtown San Francisco for the last 12 years before travling to Asia.
I'm concidering moving out of my apartment and hitting the road, I have a pack and basic light whight camping gear, I'm concidering buying a CRM250 because I'm samll 5'7" 140 lbs and know 2strokes inside and out, though I'm still not too sure about a two stroke being a very good idea for long distance travel..
so here are some questions.. (sorry I serched a bunch and just didn't find quite what I was looking to find out)
A whats the best country near Thailand to buy a bike? as in cost, legality, ease of entering outer countrys on it..
I know bikes in Thailand come with and without books (often w/o because a tax was not paid) so I was thining maybe buying a bike in Laos? ack! I don't know! I found a 1997 CRM250 in Laos but they wanted 2700.00 USD! insane!
I also worry that Having a bike will hold me back more that it will free me.. I've always ridden bikes since I was a kid, it's always been part of my life, but I've never been one for long distence travling..
there isn't really any place in this part of the world I wouldn't mind going.
so yea.. I'm confusesd about a buch of stuff, and didn't know where to turn, I tryed emailing friends back in the USA with out getting much usefull input outer than the CRM250 shouldn't cost over 2,000.00.
ok looking back this is a mess of a post, but if anyone would be so kind as to throw some wisdom my way it would be very much apreashated!
I'm going to go serch some more of the forems, while my cash runs out on this computer.. so thanks again for the help! and sorry I couldn't find them through the serches (limited time and $ on computer!)
