so i'm planning to cycle through south-east asia mid-year
just wandering what peoples experiences are in the third world... did you feel you had to lock your bike every time you stopped and left the bike for just a moment ?
i didn't lock my bike ONCE riding up to north queensland.. i jsut felt no one would ever steel someones bike especially when its so loaded up and is obviously there entire life...
but in the third world, I doubt they care much about some rich westerners 'life' ...
i dont wanna have to live in fear over their .. and but i know i can be overly trusting of people ..
just curioius what peoples advice/thoughts are on this ..
im also travelling with expensive camera gear.... so really don't wanna get it stolen ~
