My Southeast Asia road trip is over, the review begins

I returned to Singapore safe & sound on Monday evening.
After my BMW Xchallenge was serviced at BKK Motorcylce last Friday, I parked it at my friend's place at Pattaya. It will be waiting for me there till I start my journey home end of April this year.
A selection (104) of the pictures I took during this trip can still be found at my public Google+ album. Well, there's still a lot more to come: During the next couple of weeks, I'll work on the post-processing of the videos I shot, mainly while riding my motorbike, and on the design & structure of this website. Stay tuned!

Back on the road after holidays in Sihanoukville

Happy New Year 2012!
I spent the last couple of days together with friends from Singapore at Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville. At the latter we celebrated New Year's Eve together and had a relaxed boat trip the day after.
Yesterday, I hit the road again and rode all the way from Sihanoukville to Siem Reap. This is the last touristic destination of my road trip through Southeast Asia.
Unfortunately, I couldn't discover Cambodia as much as I wanted because my rear tire and my front brake pads are (almost) used up and thus, I had to reduce the mileage. All attempts finding a on/off-road tire in size 140/80-18 at Bangkok, Pattaya and Chonburi - thanks to Kitty, a Thai motorcyclist who helped me a lot - were in vain.
