Motorbiking in Borneo/Malaysian Borneo
16th April, 2012
Last year I rode a motorcycle around Vietnam as a backpacker (purchased in Hanoi and sold again in Saigon) - the system they have there is very organised and there are a lot of people doing it. I'm planning to head to Borneo (as well as Laos and Burma!!) at the end of this year as I Spent 3 years of my early childhood living there (in Borneo), and have always wanted to do something similar there or at least in Malaysian Borneo - is this possible? And has anyone done it before?
Whilst there is a lot of info here about motorbiking through Asia, particularly Vietnam I haven't been able to find much on Borneo. Any first hand experience would be appreciated!
Thanks in adavance

i'm looking to doing what you previous did, purchase a bike and ride from one end to the other, and seeing as you've already done, what and how were your experiences? how much did you have to spend for something like this, i hear like 2 weeks is a good start, but more the better,
did you have any issues, i hear if you see police people waving you down, you just keeping going and don't slow down or stop...
by chance did you blog about your journey as well?
