The three bikes left Bagan after a much needed rest and a spot of sightseeing. The road to Yangon was a superhighway built as a connection from Mandalay to Yangon, and it was spookily empty.

We managed to clock up over 600km in two days, which is a lot more than we’d managed previously. However, it reminded me why I avoid motorways…it was painfully boring!

So we chugged along our merry way and tried to keep our minds occupied.Read more...
