    One of the best day's dirt riding ever, involving a 2 hour river ride.

    A nice clip Ian & it goes to show that the area west of Mae Sarieng out to the Myanmar border is probably one of the best for dirt bike riding in the North.

    Life is good alright, when it is so easy to do theses sort of little adventures.

    Yes, that does look like the same river we rode a couple of years. Wonderful stuff. The locals use the river as part of the route to transfer supplies from boats and vendors at the Salween. It seemed that the village at the head of that river had no way to drive through the forest to Mae Sariang, so they get food etc from driving to the Salween.
