Motorcycle adventures and stuff

Welcome to my Blog!

Singapore to London

I’m planning to ride my motorcycle from Singapore to Europe starting April/May this year, 2019. I will go through Malaysia, Thailand and Laos before joining a group ride through western China. After a month in China riding through Tibet I will enter Kirghistan. Then into Kazakhstan and further towards Europe.

 

This will be a long trip and there’s lot’s of stuff to prepare.  I will be going through many countries and visa requirements will vary from country to country.  There are also preparations to do for the bike.

    Congratulations on having such the great physical abilities!!!
    Looks like quite a heroic adventure!
    Careful when driving through the southern republic of Former Soviet Union – you may want to have some of the locals to be in the riding group.
    Good luck!

      Thanks Leon. I’ll be going through several of the Stans, then through Russia west of the Caspian sea and into Georgia. What do I need to worry about?
