Fuji x100s goes dirt bike riding in the Thai-Burma jungle

A couple weeks ago I took some friends of mine on a dirt bike trip through the jungle on the border between Thailand and Burma. I got some shots of some Karen villagers in some of the remote villages, hope you like.

I sold my xPro1 (keeping my OMD as system cam) and got an x100s and I Love It! On this trip, I rode so hard and so fast through the jungle that I broke my motorcycle's subframe, all the while with the x100s around my neck in a small Lowepro Apex 60 AW bag. Had zero problems with the x100s, and I came off the bike 4 times, 2 times very hard. Tough little camera that you can take anywhere to get some amazing shots.

You can read about the trip here:

These are some portrait shots of some Karen villages far from anyway, most in a little village called Laytongku.And one shot from another cam of me crossing a river so you can see what conditions were like.
