Down the Sanpatong bypass, right onto the 108 & down to Hot for lunch. Then taking the backroads up to Chiang Mai [sgpx gpx="/wp-content/uploads/gpx/canal-road-108-hot.gpx"]
Today I cleared 2 railway stations from the ‘to-do’ list. It also gave me the chance to take the Yamaha out on a cruise and enjoy the comfy armchair one more time.
People have referred to the bike as ‘a brick’ but I think that’s a bit unfair. Sure it’s heavy but it moves really well and if you are comfortable cornering at 150kph then it’s a great ride !
After riding the D-Tracker for the last few months, this bike certainly handles altogether differently but I like it very much, especially for the acceleration, the sound and the ease of ride. If I do part with it, I shall miss it.
I took the 11 out to Mae Tha and then followed the railway back to Lamphun and called into Nong Lom & Pa Sao to check out the antiquities.
