    I was going to do a trip report.. but to be honest.. A lot of what has already been done before..

    Then I saw this picture.. a little bit of cropping and I it says it all.. No need to say any more.

    Had a great weekend.. Thanks to John Gooding and wife for taking us around on Thursday... A small 473km ride... nothing too much...

    Nice boots..

    Tracks to follow in the track forum.. and then Rob and I went off to Chiang Khong.. Very lucky with the weather.

    Look over to Laos.. Houi Xai

    I can never remember the numbers and would need to look at a map.

    The road with the memorial to the road workers killed by the communists.

    The actual pic with out the cropping is OK. but a good lense and a crop makes it look stunning..

    Cheers
    Brian

    Just went through some of the video and took a few stills.

    These capture the vibe of the trip :)

    A good selection of shots alright to capture the real nature of R1155 slicing through the mountains & along the ridge line.
    The current good road surface sure make it a road to ride right now.
    Thanks for picking out the photos from the clip & posting.
    It makes me want to do R1155 again!

    It was a great long weekend... love the roads up Chiang Kong area and of course to finish up with a bash around Samoeng trying to keep ahead of John Gooding is always fun...
