Still smiling and together after nearly two years on the road two-up around the globe, the Singapore couple said they had many roads left to explore, together.

I spotted one of my stickers on the Singapore ‘round the world Africa Twin that I had given the couple three years before, half the world away.

Singapore couple Goh and Sam and I unknowingly traded three years of road tales in front of a most cosmic place for motorcycle adventure travelers to meet, a book shop in Thailand named On The Road Books with the Free Spirit Travel Shop next door.

Malaysian adventure motorcycle traveler Alex “Stmrock” Wong published a book about his adventure from South America to Alaska using a well-worn Yamaha.

Alex “Stmrock” Wong was able to transition from riding in a group on an expensive organized motorcycle tour to leaving the group and going solo through bandits, bribes and bears, a ripping good tale of a solo adventure traveler.

Audrey Allenspach-Kok works as an elementary school teacher when she is not piloting her BMW somewhere on the planet, here pictured in Thailand.

Ekke Kok had switched mounts from his BMW R100 GS to a newer model BMW to ride through Asia, but said he still preferred the older airhead twin for long travels.

Canadians Ekke Kok (left) and Audrey Allenspach-Kok (right) were half a world away from their home in Alberta, headed to Laos and then Vietnam.

The map of the world on the pannier of Audrey Allenspach-Kok showed where they had been and where they were going when I traded tales and tips with them in Southeast Asia.

Daniel Sanchez, from Quito, Ecuador was on a solo ‘round the world tour in Southeast Asia using a 2009 Kawasaki KLR650 that he had purchased second hand for $10,000.00 USD in Ecuador.
Dr.FrazierProfilesofAdventureTravelers18.jpg
The Kawasaki KLR650 was a popular police motorcycle in Sanchez’s home country of Ecuador where a new model cost approximately $14,000.00 USD. His panniers had been manufactured in Ecuador.

Ecuadorian Daniel Sanchez was using his panniers and top box as a check-list for countries he had traveled through on his global adventure.
Dr.FrazierProfilesofAdventureTravelers20.jpg
Few motorists or motorcycle travelers would recognize the license plate on this motorcycle as having come from Ecuador, so Daniel Sanchez made it clear on his top box.

Ignacio Vaca (short name “Nacho”) had piloted his 2011 Yamaha Tenere XT660Z from France through China and Mongolia to Thailand and was aimed for Australia and then across the Pacific Ocean to Chile, Argentina and planned to eventually return to his base in France.

The colorful rug had been added while Nacho was traveling through Mongolia, a seemingly common motorcycle accessory in that country.
Dr.FrazierProfilesofAdventureTravelers11.jpg
The Yamaha Tenere XT660Z from France had seen some tough ground carrying Nacho across Europe and Asia, reportedly having not so much as burped on low quality gas in Russia, China or Mongolia.
Dr.FrazierProfilesofAdventureTravelers12.jpg
The Mongolian rug made the seat softer on Nacho’s Yamaha, and was a colorful addition seldom seen on other adventure traveler’s motorcycles.
Dr.FrazierProfilesofAdventureTravelers13.jpg
Another common accessory from Mongolia that Nacho had added to his Yamaha were these loud speakers for playing music.

An AViD sticker was added to Nacko’s Yamaha proclaiming this traveler was not an adventure rider but rather an avid rider.

Dominik Szopa from Vancouver, BC, Canada had chosen a 2007 Kawasaki KLR650 purchased in Phoenix, Arizona to use while traveling around Southeast Asia.
Dr.FrazierProfilesofAdventureTravelers16.jpg
The 2007 Kawasaki KLR650, although manufactured in Thailand where this one was spotted, was never sold in Thailand, so a rarity in most of Southeast Asia where Dominik Szopa was traveling.
