The back road surface conditions change every season, so we went on a surveying ride towards Thaton


One of the most scenic parts of R 1346

Right down to the Myanmar border on the Kok River, we wanted to see how far west we could go until the Army stopped us. At the border checkpoint they were very strict about no photos
