    Just finished editing video from last month's trip in Mae Hong Son province in northern Thailand.

    4 of us went for a multi day trip, I was on a motocross bike (not the best idea haha). We ended up riding 200km on the first day, most of it in river beds. As you can see it's pretty wet as it's rain season.

    Had a great time riding and doing the edit, hope you will enjoy the video :photog

    Haha personally I have a garmin 62s, screen is smaller but not prone to break.

    But well, anything can happen even that one I crashed in a tree once, so nothing is safe when you're riding offroad :muutt

    It's a dream, better than dry season as there is no dust. But you have to know what areas will be flooded.

    I wouldn't recommend Laos during rain season as there are to many river, but northern Thailand is great that time a year

    We all live here and own the bikes. Bikes is a hassle in SE Asia, taxes are very high and getting papers is mostly impossible. But still totally worth it!
