It had been a long held ambition to run our first commercial ‘Moto’ in Myanmar and having met Hom to discuss logistics and practicalities, we were able to successfully run the inaugural ‘Burma Moto’ in November 2017 – and what a splendid trip it was. With our local lead rider Tun Tun, support 4×4 with accompanying mechanic and spares, we undertook a 10 day, 900 mile circular ride, starting out of Mandalay, before heading up the tributaries of the Irrawaddy and into the Chin hills and the spectacular mountain scenery along the way. Throughout our route we stayed in superb accommodation and gained a wonderful insight into the peoples and culture of this remote region, with riding that was both challenging and enjoyable in every sense. Myanmar City Star Travel & Tours were superb in all departments – honest, professional, efficient and a pleasure to work with. We will certainly be running more adventures in Myanmar with them in the future.
NOTE: A 12 day trip with 10 days riding (6 – 7 hours of daily riding) on 200 cc dual sport bikes covering 900 miles on a mix of on and off road riding along bustling roads, sand tracks, gravel and post monsoon trails. Services include 200 cc dual sport bikes, fuel, support vehicle, English speaking lead rider tour guide, fuel, toll, temporary driver licence for Myanmar and full board accommodation.
