I didn’t think todays trip was going to happen as the bikes steering lock wouldn’t unlock, 10 minutes of swearing and keeping on trying finally paid off.
Tomorrow its a trip to Castrol Bike Point to get some WD 40 or the equivalent sprayed in the barrel

Along another track I come upon these, at first I thought it looked like a broom handle with something stuck on it but its a growing plant.
Does anyone know what it is?

Now for the main event, when I looked at yesterdays track and zoomed in on Google Earth I noticed a track higher up off the 106 that went down towards my new find.
The start of this track is on the North Thailand GPS map but where it splits only the top one is mapped, its the bottom one that I am interested in
