2000 Malaysia-Thailand-Laos

This was my first moto tour in 2000.  I put my previous bike, an 89' KLR 650 on a ship to Kuala Lumpur.  I did very little planning and after a nightmarish week of trying to clear my bike thru Malaysian customs, finally succeeded and just started riding north.  I traveled for about 3 months thru Malaysia, Thailand and Laos covering about 5000 miles before shipping my moto back home to San Francisco from Bangkok.  I was hooked on world motorcycle travel.
