Notice my buddy's bike in the back. Everything he had was wet.

He would dry some and strip off and then add more wet clothes in the dryer.

Gee, how many do you want?

Western Thailand, near the Burma border



Riding around in the refugee camp



Thailand



More Thailand... the truck is missing a wheel btw



Northern Laos... just south of the China border



Laos - Route 4B... "impassable in wet"



Route 4B... sideways to my intended direction of travel.... dropoff was "large"



Yeah... that one proved deep enough to stop the engine running



Yeah... OK.... so I recruited some locals to carry my gear... the bike, drowned... got left on the track, 5km out from the village in Southern Laos



Sometimes, the rain wins

Eek

You gotta be joking. That last picture very well killed this thread

Do these bikes come with gills?

I'll never feel the same if it rains. For sure.

Couple more. This was the most diabolical wet weather ride I've ever done. Route 118 near Chiang Mai, Thailand. There's a stretch there through the hills that claims a LOT of lives - three the week before this photo was taken, 20 in a bus the year before. It gets a layer of diesel on it and its already not got a lot of traction. Just after this, Phil and I were down to 50 kph and sliding around everywhere - and even slower in the corners



Same trip, the day before, over near Nan. Loved this guy's plastic bag rain helmet
