    Early days on the Doi Tung - Mae Sai Burma border road. It was still being built & was a real toughie in the wet, especially if you were on the mighty old Honda Wing 125 road bike.
    Going down, the old drum brakes wouldn't hold.
    Going up if you fluffed a gear change you'd be lucky to pull it even with duck paddling & that was after you'd kick started it on the steep slope & were stuck in first!

    Notice my Wing parked on the left side, half in the ditch - the only safe spot were it would not slide or roll over.

    The original Akha Guesthouse on Doi Tung, mid-late 1980s.
