    PS

    I can't stop watching this in HD on my plasma TV....

    If you have the Bandwidth and the patience.. change to HD 720 and pause, after downloading completely.. watch in full screen mode
    otherwise.. just watch in standard size

    Cheers

    GREAT clip; very professional; well done.
    Captures the very essence of riding in Laos these days taking those who have ventured there (though very few at the depth you guys have) along an adrenalin packed memory lane, whilst leaving those who have not yet taken the plunge, intoxicated, yearning to no longer put off the compelling force to follow your example.
    BRILLIANT!

    Very true Ian.. The first 2 days started out wet.. The mud you see is along the Mekong, Lao Burma border.

    By the end of the trip every where had dried up and dusty.. BUT then the last day had morning rain..

    Not sure what is going on with the weather.. suspect it should be mainly dry and dusty from now on.

    Cheers
    Brian

    Yes, I'm in Bangkok but no off road experience at all and probably a bit late to start now (I'm 51 :) ). Will stick to paved roads for the time being :)

    Cheers
