…. On two rented Yamaha Lanza 230cc we set out for a trip through Myanmar along the historical Burma- and Stilwell Road. This is the fourth blog about this trip. Click to see the introduction and part one and two.
On the way to Inle
The first part to Inle Lake was going back the same way as we had come. Until that point the bikes had done well. Only the daily checking and if necessary topping up the two takt oil was enough to keep them going. Driving back the Burma Road the opposite direction, away from China, shit hit the van.
I used to hate having motorbike problems, but gradually I don’t mind that much anymore. A sequence of motorbike failures in all kind of corners of this planet over the past years have proven that problems are not that horrific as I used to think. A defect will not be the end of your trip. Its maybe even quite the opposite, motorbike problems is where the unplanned and strange situations start, thus a vital part of fun and adventure driving a motorbike in these countries.
