I dont know why, but most of the pictures come up blank with a grey circle in the middle and a white line running through the circle. about 6 are visible to me but the rest dont appear.

Thanks for the heads up, Thrasherg. I am trying to figure out what's going on (possibly permissions issues) and applying fixes.

Really wonderful photos of beautiful tropical places. I love super rustic anything & it appears there is plenty, ie the Fisherman’s Hut. My idea of perfect is a thatched roof, mosquito net & not too much else. Well, beer is always a welcome luxury. Keep on keeping on.

Thanks for the kind words. I'm pretty sure you each have interesting destinations and journeys as well. I only started motorcycle riding around 9 years ago after being exclusively a cage driver for 17 years. It is when and where I discovered that I can truly enjoy the journey (heavy traffic is still a nightmare though) and not only the destination. Back in those times of realization and discovery, doing one particularly large lake loop was unthinkable to be doing in a car, but not with a motorcycle, especially in the context our country's traffic and road conditions. I became hooked. And I even made a scooter as my daily ride.

Great pix. Good looking bike, and you're lucky your wife likes to ride with you.

Thank you.



This can't be seen but sometimes, she complains a lot - about the weather, the tiring pillion position, her aching back, legs and butt due to extended saddle time, bumpy roads, my sometimes aggressive riding maneuvers and my scary-only-to-her lean angles LOL. During our longer rides that take quite a few hours, she would sleep behind me - where I would drastically wake her up or offer for us to stop, which is not particularly great when traveling with large groups. Despite all this, I still love riding with her, because I'd miss her terribly when I get to enjoy the views and destinations and she's not with me. Otherwise, I'd end up looking for "alternatives" in those faraway destinations >:).


I live in the city and I'm not getting younger. I therefore enjoy my rides to the country side.

Thanks for sharing the wonderful photos.

It's a beautiful part of the world we seldom see.

And you have a cool bike.

Many thanks.

Reviving this little thread here to add a few more pictures.

Wife poses at a gas stop, with my riding group ATP's bikes around.



Buying a local delicacy from a nearby province. Note the paint scrape/peel from the engine cover. That has been getting larger and larger.
