Here they come, Eddie had got a puncture in the front tyre and was taking it easy, he made it to Mae Khachan where it was fixed for 50 Baht

Eddie is at the back taking it easy, we ride into Mae Khachan where the others ate, I was still full, then we split and took the 118 back at our own separate speeds after a fun days ride.
