Some changes are slowly starting to emerge in Burma.. but I would not hold my breath the borders will suddenly open. That said, I was surprised to see, that someone HAD actually managed to get a permission from the Burmese government to enter with his motorcycle from India, and this happened a few months ago. Getting this permission had, however, taken several months. Some have also gotten their bikes in from Thailand, on an organised tour (and pre-planned route).
But anyway I think itīs fair to say, that you cannot just pop up at the border with a visa, and proceed into Burma. At least that part has not really changed in several decades.
