The old road with a bit of a hole in it.

Another hole in the road on the same road.

And incredibly the the guy in the hole hit the hole whilst riding his bike, & he was the third bike in the group! :roll:
The 1st 2 riders saw & missed it, but not the 3rd guy. :shock:
I will try & did out some more photos. Pikey was there & might have some pix + comments to add. :lol:

Ah, my first ever trip to S.E Asia :D

No pics from me as I was one of the ones that missed it and was subsequently stranded a few more km down the trail after my Pegaso decided it didn't like the diesel fuel that it got topped up with by the farmer - remember the "curse" of the lost city?

Bloody big hole alright and Greg (the rider) must have let his attention wander as it was easy to spot. Lucky bloke as it was a fair drop off the trail down to the river below and the jungle stopped him and his bike from a nasty tumble. :shock:

This was a bigger hole though:

Laos April 2000

An interesting trip. I sold a Baja 250 to a Spanish guy who rode it one way to Vientiane & I the flew over to Vientiane, bought the bike back for the agreed fee, and rode it back to Chiang Mai. Ah yes the good old days - no bike rego or number plate necessary, no customs computers, & everything went in the book. It depended who you knew & GTR was well known already on the Thai / Laos border. Golden days. Minimal kit, just a sports bag on the back & off you went.

I meet a similar guy between Ban Nong Kieow and the Elephant trail. (Yes, I was lost. Some say I stil am:laughing:)
He pointed to 7 women which I took be to his wife's. And countless children's.
No GPS or camera. Have been in the area since but never found his "private" village again.
