    Watching this clip it reminded me of the multiple "concrete weir" stream crossings on the way to the Long Neck village Huay Sua Tao near Mae Hong Son.

    Having succummed to the icy concrete riding out to Huay Sua Tao once, I no longer feel so bad after seeing this.

    But I was wondering how many other guys have fallen off / had a moment or two, going out to Huay Sua Tao?

    Ha, Ha, Ha. Like minds............. I was showing Thim the Dakar clip and trying to explain why they were all crashing. I used the example of the weir crossings on the way to the Long Necks and she then understood. I never went down, but it is sure treacherous.

    Reminds me of a particularly glass like shallow concrete river crossing on the 1B rocky road to Phongsali !
