Hi Will,

we did the same last summer: We sold our bikes in Mongolia and asked ourself: What now? We decided to fly to SEAsia and to buy small bikes there. But where? All information we found on the web seemed to be contradictory and confusing.

We ended up buying bikes in Malaysia since its super easy and all legal.
We wrapped everything up in a blog post:

Have fun in SEAsia!!
Cheers Patrick

Thanks for the reply Patrick,

Will have a read of your blogs

Hi Will,

selling the bikes in Mongolia was easy, we sold them to 2 Australian ex pads. They handled all the paperwork. We left the country before without any problems.

If you want, PM us for contact addresses.

Cheers Patrick
