Buying and Riding a Motorcycle in South East Asia

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 review
When it comes to riding Southeast Asia the big question is not "should I buy or should I rent" but rather "where do I even start?"
The authors were confronted with just this question as they attempted to plan a motorcycle trip throughout Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia & Laos. Every answer they found was different. So they decided to write this handbook as a guide for other new riders in the region. More

About Sherrie McCarthy

An avid reader, traveller and writer, I wrote my first book at ten years old, and promptly destroyed it a month later when my classmates refused to stop talking about it. It suggested a temperament that might be counter productive to my declared dream of becoming a published author.

I teach English to support my travel habit, and I am replacing teaching with writing.

When I am not writing a book, I am blogging or writing my Chasing Summer column:

Reviews of Buying and Riding a Motorcycle in South East Asia by Sherrie McCarthy

Barry Russell reviewed on May 22, 2012

I discovered this book through the Ride Asia forum, and recommend it to tourists and residents in Asia alike.

The authors rightly identified a gap in the market for a definitive book about the legalities of buying a bike in South East Asia, where restrictive immigration and trade practices make it mind-bogglingly complicated for anyone born and raised in the EU. They succeed with an engaging, easy to read charm that takes you from deciding what bikes to buy, to how to buy them, where to buy them, border crossing issues and re-selling them at the end. They also break down the budget so you can see exactly what the costs are.
The riding and travelling tips are full of amusing insights and commonsense and the links and references at the end are valuable too.
This little e-book is fun to read and an excellent source of information.
