  3. When one considers these shots were taken almost 20 years ago, they are truly remarkable shots; a fact so clearly confirmed by the look on the faces of on-lookers in the photo where you'd been stopped by the police! Great shot it is as one can literally see the confusion engendered by the police who clearly had no idea where you came from, what you were doing where you were going.......

    The photos truly warrant a trip report, if only furnished as a grouping of memories from the ride - dis you ride from CNX? Through Laos? Visa issues? A guide? The side-car?...........

    Crazy!

    looking back you have to laugh - how little luggage we carried compared to today's adventure riders with huge side & top boxes. Plus no backup vehicle. It was all part of the adventure - just another ride from Chiang Mai.
