Best guess at the moment if early mid July, the Vietnam border is also closed into Laos, no firm news on when that will open, but the Vietnam government has extended tourist visa for those trapped in country (me) until the end of June. So I guess they are all aiming for the same date, mid July.

... and you probably won't be allowed into Laos on a 150cc bike.

Taking a Vietnamese plated bike into Laos is not a problem even a 150cc, you see loads for sale around the big towns by backpackers. The biggest issue will be border points being open, Myanmar and India have increasing numbers of covid, until that slows there's little chance they will open to overlanders.

They certainly stop the small bikes going in from this side. We had a chap turn up here a few months back on a sub250 bike. He was denied entry in Chiang Khong and ended up selling the bike there and flying home.
