    Hello Guies,
    I got hold of some bike trip pictures in Cambodia when I was living there back in 2005. This trip was from Siem reap to Tbaeng Beanchey area to visit the village/family of my cambodian friend Minear. Sorry I can't find the exact itinary we took at the time as Minear was directing us. It was a 2 days trip, in September 2005, at the "end" of rainy season (it was still pretty wet though). I was with my Honda XLR 250.

    Going to explore the depth... I can tell you it was very deep. After that it is missing pictures but we decided to catch a small track on the right and arrived in the middle of a rice field. We then started to ride on those little walls separating the rice fields. Of course when you can't put your feet down it is quiete a challenge. We droped the bikes a few times and the farmer, when he saw us started to shoot at us and chase us with his stick. We apologised and got through eventually...

    The next day visiting a unexplored temple. There are a lot of temples like this in Cambodia, just not taken care of yet. If you don't have a local to bring you there, you can just pass right next to it and not even notice it...

    Thanks, those shots of the old Ankor bridge and the women with the water are fantastic.
