Got a few varied ones here, since my last post in Dec '11

Unloading from the onion boat, a 100' wooden ship, that brought the bike across from Sumatra to Malaysia



The crane made it easy



All done



This one is the ferry at Penang, Malaysia



Another ferry, across the Mekong River, Laos





Squeezed onto another Mekong ferry from Laos... up on the ramp

I switched to another bike to go back into Laos. Across the Mekong, yet again



Then it got interesting. I had to cross the Mekong again, and get downstream a ways



Here's the boat... four of us lifted the KTM in





and here we are, doing 60 kph down the Mekong (I kept the GPS on). The offsider "rode" the bike, with me tucked in behind



River crossings from then on typically involved boats... sometimes it fitted in, sometimes it didn't. This was heading down the Ho Chi Minh Trail during the wet season



Just fitted on this one



Definitely too much water to get across myself... and the fee reflected that. 50,000 kip

This was the loading ramp... ride up and make sure to not overshoot




... didn't use the ramp to get off, just wheelied off.

This one... hmm... no photos of the bike on the boat.. that's it just after I got off. You just ride on one end, off the other. Trouble is, its sized for scooters. We were taking water over the ends



This was the loading ramp on the other side. Bit rugged. Note the guy on the scooter... has an SKS slung on his back



Here we go again... only 5,000 here





all girl crew there too. Just ride on, ride off



and again....



and this was about 30 minutes before I drowned the bike in a creek



and let's finish with the Mekong, again...
