These 2 biking buddies Peifa and Daniel planned the "trip of a lifetime", to ride from Singapore, to St Abbs, Scotland last year in a pre-COVID19 world. Along the journey, they experienced wondrous moments and faced hardships that made their friendship stronger.

I think riding to india/pakistan is already quite an achievement.

And with a fracture, obviously anyone will come back home.

They used the wrong equipment.

Should have used this. Can repair everywhere in the world and can always find spare parts.

Dont know if thats the bike that broke down.   Anyway i hv heard enough horrors and know enough friends who would say owning a bwm bike was a big mistake they made.🤣

these two riders are likely still wet behind their ears. 
The first thing to check if your bike cant crank start is the batt.   No need to go forum and ask so much advice lah.

very ill prepared. Alamak how can go touring like that?

Small mountains no problems.

Himalaya tall mountains also no problem.

Can even give a lift to a hitch hiker go up the mountain.

a friend of mine in KL who has a few big bikes (BMW, Triumph, Moto Guzzi etc) actually bought a honda cub just for a trip to Vietnam, after a few long trips in his other bikes. Lighter bikes also easier to manage. Anyway he doesn't go fast and doesn't carry much gear.

motorcycle not like car meh? This kinda serious long distance endurance stuff. Buy MIJ one. Yamaha, kawasaki, honda etc?

Seriously, if I'm crossing the sahara, i would choose a toyota hilux or land cruiser 100% of the time. [laugh]

I would like to go around the world on a bike but when it rains I will get wet and if I skid I will fall down.

So this is the perfect vehicle for me the 4MC as it can never skid or fall over.

Just needs a roof to keep the rain out.

:grin:

Safer than cars on an oily skid pan.

I just wonder, will it come a day when people make cars and bikes the way they make iPhones so that it's totally irreparable and have a planned obsolete?
