Some memories from the road.

Below are just a handful of photos from my ride through Asia. Hope you enjoy them. There are plenty more posts, maps, illustrations and more throughout this blog, so help yourself fellow riders!


The harsh and rugged mountain passes that lead to Deqen, in Northern Yunnan Province, China.

Life on China's "national roads" is much harsher than the new, clean and motorcycle-banned super highways. A local commutes to his job at one of several nearby factories. In the distance is one of the usual heavy-duty trucks that makes life on these roads dangerous and miserable.
(Eastern China, Wuxi)


The nitty-gritty life of southern Laos. This town borders Thailand, separated by a narrow river at the back of the plaza. A perfect resting place for a weary rider!
