Malaysia, Indonesia, East Timor heading towards Australia

Norwegian man - currently in Thailand. Been riding my own bike from Europe to here. Planning to stay here over christmas/new year and the do a 1,5-2 months loop to Laos and Cambodia and then back to Thailand and a month or two here again.

Approx March/April 2015 heading from Thailand slowly direction Australia. Malaysia, Indonesia, maybe East Timor before Oz. Borneo/Kalimantan interesting too. I am not in hurry, planning to take it slow on the way. Up to two monts in each country. Shipping to Oz approx september/october 2015.

Anyone interested to hang out for parts of the trip, share stories, expences, shipping expences etc - feel free to contact.

Hey, sounds great! I'll be around the area at the end of the year. I'll keep you posted on my movement, that is the easiest way.

Between now and 11 december between Koh Tao and Bkk, moving north.

Hi there

I am in Chiang Mai for the moment. Its my kinda home here in Thailand.
But I a moving around a bit too.....

I am quite well known in northern Laos down to Vientiane and in northern and northeastern Thailand - although far from a expert. So I can share experiences about where to drive, routes etc.

If you like you can pm me when you get to Chiang Mai.

Hi Wayne :-)

I didnt realise that you were in BKK right now. Would have been nice to meet up again. Anyhow - I am in Malaysia already and will be around here until Mr Lim gets the bike over to Indo.

Se you another time though!

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 all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
