    Highway 9 should be all asphalt.
    BobS was out there last year & should be able to give you some more info, including travel times.

    To get your bike across the Mekong River you need to put it in a boat, get on one of the big vehicle ferries that go over.

    If the bike is in your name should be no trouble to get out of Thailand / into Laos.

    Suggest you take a look at

    for some more info.

    Also take a look at the good Bat reports
