Hi there guys! We are planning our year end (Dec 2012) ride to Laos this year. Our plan is to ride from Kuala Lumpur making our border crossing at Chong Mek. We plan to tour (on road only) southern Laos and make our way to central and then northern Laos and exiting back into Thailand at Huay Sai. We are flexible with duration in Laos up to 14 days if required. My preliminary question is concerning a suggested ride distance per day based on your knowledge of the road conditions and general safe touring/riding speed that Laos roads can accord. Is a distance between 250 to 300km a good distance as our priority is to reached our destination before sunset during each riding day. I would welcome your suggestions or advice before I start planning our routes and overnite points. Cheers!
