Will be spending a lot more time up in the Rose of The North, and will do some small motorbike ride reports as I twist along.

Will be a bit of a slow thread I reckon.

Saw this on google maps this morning, so off I goes.

The 3044.

Nice n easy, around 30km long and nice n twisty with the mountains to one side and fields to the other.

Nice streams and nature on the way there.

If you build it, they will come.


Could be Kevin Costner's holiday pad.

Thank you dear.

Ahh, cheers.

Some sort of campus would make a lot more sense than a local sport's team. :los:

Samoeng Loop


Buggered off for a nice morning ride along an old favorite. The Samoeng Loop.

What an absolutely amazing road.

Lots of places to stop off at.... if yer gay.

Fok that, us real riders only stop for a nice cold strawberry milk.

Lots of strawberry farms along the way.

And what amazing roads and views.

Not wanting to be around smelly backpackers or be murdered by a policeman, I decided to not bother going on to Pai.

Samoeng is a lovely quaint little town.

Can come on the 21st and sit on wet old wood next to a dank brown stream and eat what I'd imagine is fried rice with bits of dirt and gravel in it.

Fantastic road. Great for a small trip (maybe 2 hrs) if in CM.

Followed by lunch and a warm oil massage and it's a great way to spend a day. :yup:

Back to Bkk for 2-4 weeks tomorrow, so the thread will be on hold. :los:
