    Introducing Mr. Laurent Avizou, Extreme Off Road Guide for Laos Adventure Riders

Laurent comes to Vientiane by way of France. He has been living here in Laos for more than 5 years and has made quite a mastery of language, sure to get a good laugh from local villagers, always surprised and amused to hear a  Farang speaking Lao language so well. Laurent has been guiding for L.A.R.A for more than 3 years now and has covered most every area of the country on the dirt. When he isn’t busy working on the trails, he’s out exploring new tracks on the GPS. Laurent speaks French, English, and Lao.

Right now he is enjoying riding a Honda XR400R, suitable to compete in the Baja 1000. Every single trick bit installed, from Ohlins shock to full Dr.D Exhaust and IMS oversize tank. He’s ready for anything. Before that, pleasure came from an equally as well kitted WR450F from Yamaha.

Ready for action
