Made it to the Thai border at Nong Kai without incident and began the rather tedious process of running around to complete the immigration and customs formalities.
Other than one annoying customs official and Rob being assaulted and bloodied by a low awning things went smoothly on the Thai side.
We ignored the signs that say "No Motorcycles" and rode directly across the Friendship Bridge to Laos
No sooner had we crossed the bridge did Rob run over a 4x4 block of wood that sent him flying but fortunately he managed to stay shiny side up!
I stopped and picked up all the stuff that fell out of his top box. Video riding across the friendship bridge from Nong Khai, Thailand to Vientiane, Laos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nd6zs0sbWdw
