Neat! Let's all do it on the TWs!
Most of those places that claim " The world's most dangerous road" look pretty doable on a motorcycle as long as their is not a lot of oncoming traffic. The surviving truck and bus drivers on these routes are the ones that earn my admiration.

I'm right there with you Smitty. If that was me I believe I would have widened the gap between cycles. I wonder how many guys died building that road not to mention the guys that fall off each year.

The TV perspective is just plain scary. I bet when you there it feels a little safer. I can stand on top of a tall building and look out and be fine. When I see the same thing on video, I'm like that looks freaky..

I'd love to go tour Nepal. In fact, it'd be a fantastic place to ride a TW. So I dug up the website for Yamaha in Nepal. The biggest bike they sell there is a 153cc model (not a TW; just one of their regular bikes). I'd love to bring my TW with me and go spend a couple of months there and just tour the whole country. You can live on about $5-8 a day from what I can tell (and that's living large).

I know it's probably not possible or allowed, but I'd love to see how close to Everest Base Camp I could get on the TW, before the air got too thin or the trail too narrow/rocky/whatever. At 20k feet, I'm sure the bike would peter out around 12-13k (me too).

I would ride the TW there, maybe hugging the inside lane. Now riding in a four wheeler trusting someone else's driving would new another thing. Not enough passing lanes for the trucks and buses .:(
