A short ride out to Samoeng on 1269 and turn left in front of the market and rode south into Ob Khan National Park and then took a few tracks…
The previous time I did this trip was in February 2009, on a Honda Wave and you can see EXTENSIVE! images of that ride here …
Today instead of a Wave, I was on a DTracker and it was perfect.
Tarmac, concrete, cobbles, ruts, pot holes, loose pebbles & bolders & talcum powder, this bike got me over the varied surfaces with fun, comfort and confidence.
Within the middle stretch, after Bo Kaeo, is where I took most of my photos today looking out over the massive amount of mining going on with the accompanying road damage either side.
My journey ended with torrential rain which was also a lot of fun, quenching the scorch of the searing last few months.
A note for Big Al, the Harley rider, this is a definite ‘no-no’ route for such a bike.
145km round trip.[sgpx gpx=”/maps/bo-kaeo-to-mae-wang.gpx” style=”width:100%; height:600px; border:1px solid gray; margin-right:20px; float:left;”]
