If you go to Malaysia, you have to visit David. That’s what we were told long before we ever reached Asia so by the time we passed through we were very curious about this famous bike tourist. David turned out to be one of the most memorable people on our tour, hosting us in his home and taking us on a grand tour of his area, then cycling with us for a few days. He’s one of the few people we’ve seen sucessfully ride and talk at the same time! And he’s done his fair share of touring too, riding to China and all around Europe.
