  1. Hi Colin

    That wasn’t me, I was on my Versys and my friend was riding his Yamaha. We just came down from Luang Namtha and did the loop before heading to Chiang Mai on the 14th Dec.
    Anyway cheers and see you around.
    Ride safe.

  2. Hi Liew

    I remember meeting a couple from Malaysia in a restaurant a few weeks ago who were on a 2 stroke Honda, was that you and your wife?

    No plans to visit Laos I am afraid

    Best wishes

    Colin

  3. Hi Colin
    Nice to read your reply. I’m from Kuala Lumpur and have visited Chiang Mai / mhs for couple of times. I ride my own bike there few weeks back. Always nice to read your reports.
    Any plans to visit Laos anytime soon?
    Ride safe.

  4. Hi Liew

    Yes it was a shame, where are you based?

    Colin

  5. Hi Colin
    I was in town 2 weeks ago stayed at Riverview. Just notice that you were nearby as well. Too bad didn’t get the chance to say hello. Maybe next year.
