A Brief History of Asian Motorcycle Adventures

A Brief History of Asian Motorcycle Adventures


Asian Motorcycle Adventures was founded by Reed Resnikoff, an avid motorcycle adventurist and explorer in 1997.

He has travelled extensively on motorbikes throughout Asia (Burma, China — Hong Kong to Shanghai, down the entire length of the Silk Road + the Great Wall (end-to-end), Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Sumatra, Jakarta to Bali, Flores, The Philippines (top-to-bottom). Wanting to share his adventures with others he became a freelance writer and photographer, contributing these stories to most of the major motorcycle magazines around the world (copies of which are viewable on this website.)

The operation was moved to Chiang Mai from where it has operated since 2000.

Reed sold the business in Oct 2016 as he no longer felt up to the gruelling program of riding and has stayed on to promote the company.

The new owners are Paul Henley and Jemica Saki.

Paul, originally from Australia has over 45 years riding experience in Australia, Europe, Middle east, South America, Asia and Papua New Guinea.  He recently retired from a lifetime in the mining industry and  relocated to Chiang Mai late in 2015 to explore Thailand, Myanmar Laos and Cambodia by motorbike.

Paul is the chief mechanic, bike cleaner and general dogs body in the operation and answers only to Jemica (she who must be obeyed).

Jemica is originally from Papua New Guinea and is a keen if somewhat inexperienced ride who looks after the administration, bookings, accommodation and provisioning. She also ensures that our guests’ requirements at our accommodation, along the road and at attractions are well-satisfied.

We hope you decide to join one of ASIAN MOTORCYCLE ADVENTURES’ well thought-out luxury tours. For sure it will be an eye-opening experience, one you will never, ever forget



This website is a huge one, with over 130 pages, 2,200 photos, fifty slides shows, and fifty videos. And it is constantly growing as we complete more tours and venture into new terrains. If you are interested in motorcycling anywhere in Asia, we hope you will spend a bit of time on our website looking at out images and watching our videos. Since a photo is worth 1,000 words, and a video is worth about a million, this would be a good place to start to see what riding a motorcycle around Asia is like.
