Route 7 is terrific especially around Nam Chat, be a blast on a motard and the views, well you just have to see it live.
Only did 13 from Xiang Ngeun noth to Luang Prabang but I didn't find a road I didn't enjoy
Hey Gavo...in a few years time Laos will be a sports bike paradise...Imagine doing that on a 748....



This one...if somebody can find it, some B#%%^ nicked it..

I was considering taking my little Honda from here in Australia via Timor and Indonesia, might have to rethink that now.
Can I PM you to get more information on the volunteer work, I'm on the cusp of retirement and looking for something meaningful to do.
Thanks RDT, jump on a plane I got spare Lifan in Chaing Mai you can use.....there are ways of buying your own bike in Thailand, much easier than importing I think and a whole lot cheaper......PM me.



As for volunteer work I can hook you up with some good people doing some really good stuff. When I set out on this ride I always wanted to help somebody out, my travels I have found many, but 2 really leap out at me LEOT and a school project I am working on with a local Laos man down south to provide school uniforms and educational equipment.

I have been keeping quiet about the good causes but it will aired when we are finished putting it together.

Every little bit help out here 5 bucks can make somebody day a whole lot brighter, a little aid box like the one below can make a whole school happy..



Look forward to talking more with you...Bye for now..
