Vientiane to Luang Prabang by Motor Bike

We are 4 guys from Oz looking at riding from Vientiane to Luang Prabang and planning on following the motor bike trail along the Mekong River to complete the journey. We have biked in Cambodia and North Thailand already so have a good sense of traffic. Any thoughts or suggestions in regards to that trail? None of us have been to Laos before.

I went by mini van, and couldn't imagine doing this. Very dangerous. To each his own.

Hi Danielle,

I rode alone from Vientiane to Luang Prabang last Feb. I had a 5 days trip. You can go by route 13 and return by route 14, all roads are in good condition. I rent a bike from Remote Asia Travel.
