My dream, adventure traveller in malaysia

So i have been in Taiwan for a while now, studying here and trying to get in some riding on the weekends whenever i get a break from school or traveling. I was lucky enough to be in Malaysia this weekend and visited the perhentian islands, which btw is the most beautiful place i have ever seen wish i didnt have to leave . but anyways while there i happened to run into a guy that has been riding for the last 10 months all over the world,
talked and chatted with him a bit and got some photos of his bike that i thought i would post. He has been riding from Norway all the way through Europe, Iran, Pakistan, Nepal, India, Thailand, and ended up in Kuala Lumpur to get his bike fixed, while it was getting fixed he was staying at the hostel i was staying at working there for a free stay. Any way onto the photos
Enjoy

Make sure to hit up Malacca while you're in Malaysia. Sorry to hear that throughout your Southeast Asia tour...your only story is about some dude on a bike...
JK, but good luck while you're over there; get that riding in.

Taipei is a great city if you are into nightlife! The food is just amazing and readily available almost 24/7. Shopping is also great, many stores don't close until 2am so you can have a big dinner and then go shopping until they close and then go grab a late snack before clubbing or ktv..... man i miss it! Oh yeah and i know you are into asian women so here is a tip, if you go to Tien Moo you will find lots of good looking girls just waiting to meet Americans or Europeans, they have lots of pubs that are frequented by Americans living in Taipei in that area. Oh yeah and since 2007, you can now ride any type of motorcycles on the street (limited to 250cc before). I am sure that you will enjoy Taipei as much as i do just don't mess with a benz/bmw with a "pin lan" (rare olive that tastes like tobacco) on top of the hood....
