Broken Down in Vientiane, Laos, Anyone for Beer with TravellingStrom?

As it says, my bike is broke and I am waiting on parts

I will be here for the next 10 days or hopefully a little less, before heading to Cambodia in a rush

If anyone wants a or a chat, drop on by, I am staying at the Villa Lao Hotel

N17 58.289 E102 35.782

There is very cheap rum in this country, along with cheap food so I not unhappy to break down here

Cheers
TravellingStrom

Not in Laos at the moment, but entered Cambodia today(obviously no good for you now).

Traveling on bicycles so might still be around when you arrive here.

Good luck with the parts!

@Pumbaa Once I get my bike back on the road I will be blasting through southern Laos to get into Cambodia ASAP

@Pirate63 The cam chain tensioner on the front pot stuck and the chain slappped around and the camshafts jumped a few teeth and went out of timing. The new chains and tensioners are on order

I did not get any special injections that I can recall, except for th eflue shot, not sure on Rabies though, I will have to check my little yellow book when I see it next

Good luck on the next three weeks, fun eh!

Cheers

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
