    I do. Normally Sunday morning rides to various parts of Johor. Then return to SG by morning too - just in time for the Mrs to get out of bed.

    But I'll likely not be able to go for the next few Sundays as I'm planning a long ride soon.

    No definitive plan yet, but the rough plan is go up north through Peninsular Malaysia, cross the Thailand border, head towards Chiang Mai, then turn east towards Laos, thru Luang Prabang, Vientiane. Then come back into Thailand, head south towards Cambodia - go through Siam Reap and Phnom Penh. Then back to Thailand - Pattaya and Bangkok. And head south towards the Thailand beaches - Ko Samui, Phuket, Krabi, Hat Yai. And if I'm still in the mood, then travel through the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia - Kota Bahru, Terengganu, Kuantan, Mersing. Then back to Singapore.

    But right now, my primary concern is the border crossings and how easy they're gonna be. I'm trying to get into these countries legally and don't want to pay exorbitant fees for guides or crossings, nor have to apply prior for permits. I'm avoiding schedules. And having to apply for permits forces me on a schedule. So China, Myanmar and Vietnam are no-go for me for now. It's probably relatively simple on the Malaysian-Thailand border. But the Thai-Laos-Cambodia ones can be a little tricky. So I'm still doing some research on it.

    I like to plan as I go and not let schedules mar the spirit of adventure. =)

    Hi hi! Yes.... But my long trip has also come to a temporary halt.... The engine suffered a failure. Had to tow the bike from Pai to Chiang Mai. Presently in Chiang Mai, waiting for an engine teardown to determine what parts are needed before I order them and ship up from SG. Thailand, Malaysia and the surrounding countries don't have a Bajaj dealership - so cannot source parts locally here.

    Well, I guess such experiences make for an adventure! Hahah..

    Yep yep, I read in your blog about this. Too bad man. In the meantime, I guess you can rent a scooter and enjoy Chiang Mai for the next few days. I wonder how did your engine get to this state. If the engine is properly lubricated, it's hard to imagine the engine wearing down so much that you get metal shavings.

    I have seen something like this happening to a kupkia in youtube (c90adventures), but that guy (Ed March) has a really old, beat up bike that cost him 150 quid. Maintenance was probably not high on his list of priorities. Luckily for him, every village has a kupkia repair shop, so he was able to get it fixed, and he rode it from Malaysia to UK.

    This is one of the considerations I've had for a while now for a long distance trip. Would a newish kupkia be the best choice for a ride through Asia? Hmmm....

    Right now, I have a 2 year old Super4 in excellent condition, and I'm thinking of taking it on a round ASEAN trip too.

    I've always been diligent about my oil levels and have always been using quality oils. Presently running Motul's 300V and the oil level has NEVER gone minimum while under my care. I'm the 2nd owner though, and really don't know it's history. But it has not gave me any engine troubles for the time I had with it - till now at least. But anyhow, I'll have to deal with this first.

    I think the Super4 would be a great bike to do your tour. Honestly, most bikes here are small'ish kup chai's. I've not been to Bangkok yet (and don't really intend to), but most Thais here don't drive / ride at insane speeds like what I see more frequently on the Malaysian NSHW. While I do sometimes wish for a higher displacement bike, I have, to be honest, never felt inadequate on the 200cc thumper. So I can only imagine that the multi-cylinder Super4 will do great!

    I don't have an adventure bike. But I'm having an adventure with my bike.

    You should do your trip sometime soon! Like what one of the farang I randomly met commented, "hey! We only live once right?"

    =)
