As we are about to spend some time riding Northern Laos I have written a couple of posts to be autoposted over the next couple of days. That means the blog does not go dead for a week at a time as it tends to do (it can be hard to find wi fi in the jungle). This also means I will not be emailing people back or moderating comments, so just because a post goes up does not mean I am ignoring you – I wrote all of it tonight while I still have access to the internet.

Instead I leave you with this series of photos of some awesome off-roading we did in the mountains of Southern Laos not that far from the border with Vietnam. None of it roads I would have been able to do with Betty (the BMW F 650 I sold in Mongolia for those new to the blog) and all of it thanks to the Golden Triangle Riders map of the region. When they say a path is a motorcycle path to be ridden only in the dry season, please believe them!
I made Patrick do this one not because of the water, but because of the mud ditch you need to get out of once you cross it!
