    Nice one Sukie !! Was this an effect on purpose or are these cameras starting to ''tunnel'' once you move at higher speeds ? Cheers, Franz

    Glad you like it

    i used iMovie to edit it on my Mac and added fx/music to make it more interesting, otherwise, can get kind of boring after awhile

    The road looked nice & clean & with those beautiful skies I reckon you were having an absolute blast.
    I particularly liked the music too, but did not recognize the artist - who is it? :oops:

    I reckon that you must have done quite a bit of editing & bloody good it was too, because I think there were two sections of road there, one coming up from Mae Chan & the other heading south from DMS towards Tha Ton - yes / no? OR have I got it totally wrong & it is all heading south from Mae Salong?

    Have you done the Akha Sam Yaek - Thoed Thai - Huai Mu - Doi Tung link up yet? That's one incredible tight steep narrow twisting road, & the switchbacks at Pha Bur are unbelievable - arguably the steepest in the North?

    How many kms have you got up on the "young" Tiger now? Around 30,000?

    Fun way to remember this fabulous route! I am only missing the fresh air and the smell of the grass :)

    The Tiger is now roughly 51,000 km
    The music is Duran Duran ( not a huge fan but like that particular song)

    The route is actually the 1234 - starting from the southern checkpoint and heading north toward Mae Salong

    been to all the routes you've mentioned

    Will be up north again around 27th-28th

    Hope all is well

    Quite something there; first off your cam is mounted by a smiling gent carrying a machine gun and the music chosen does a good job capturing the feeling you get from riding the roads like that in this weather.

    Oh, glad you enjoyed riding amongst all that heavy traffic - was that a cow at 0.50 seconds?

    Thanks

    Always enjoyable when you, your bike and the road sync and become one
