Day #1 ~ 400km from Hochiminh City (Vietnam) to Stung Treng (Cambodia).

We had twelve bikes for the trip. Some of them with passengers.
Noon time, at the muster point:

Quite clear road during lunchtime, so we moved with quite good speed.
As near to the border, the road condition turned pretty bad, lots of pot holes, loose gravel, all kinds of offroad stuff...
Well, this is what we did not expect, however we knew it would be happened.
A Multistrada got punched, by a sharp stone:

This Multistrada seemed ok with the road:

And of course, for my GS:

GS really showed up it's consistent of handling ability as well as providing comport to the rider. It also proved me quality of the new Heidenau tire set, which I have just install with some km before this trip:

Better road at the end of Vietnam roads:

We reached the border gate. It's a really small check-point. Noticed there are very minimum movement of personnel and vehicles across the border.
Still did not know how sure the guys would let us go:
