    Hauke's bike getting carried across.. His exhaust was too low and the river was quite deep.. Even the KLX exhaust was close to the water.

    Route 18 – Kingfisher's branchout – two dirt landings, no harm, just red earth! :oops:

    Visited both ends of Route 18 … but did few kilometers in the middle!

    Here’s two of my favourites.

    The first is what looks to be an innocent mud puddle in the middle of the track, problem was, there was a branch just under the mud on an angle, ready and waiting to catch out unsuspecting riders.

    555 That Video is hilarious, but they always are when its someone else lying in the mud.

    The muddy hand that appears is like something out of a 1930s horror movie.....ITS ALIVE!

    Strictly speaking.. Not a picture.. :)

    But a great demonstration of how much fun Route 18 A is and can be..
    As well as especially muddy just after the rainy season.. This was November.
    Would not suggest trying any earlier.

    Still one of the best rides in Laos IMHO
