The Route 118, 121, 1001

Total Distance 198 km

First thing to do this morning was find some 1st class insurance, I tried Thaisri who I had the Phantom insured with but they only offered voluntary for 2500 Baht so I went back to Kawasaki and got 1st class for 9000 Baht, then it was past midday so only time for a short maiden trip today

Image

I take the 118 past Doi Saket to see the hopefully full Mae Kuang reservoir and I wasnt disappointed

Image

Image

Lots of little fish swimming here

Image

Apart from these people the place was pretty much deserted

Image

Image

Its very clear at the moment, I wonder how long it will stay like this

Image

At the overflow and the water level is well up

Image

Image

Definitely the highest that I have ever seen it and I guess it was overflowing last month

Image

Now its time to ride to the back of this reservoir

Image

The road off of the 1001 that leads to the back of the Mae Kuang reservoir

Image

The road is disappearing into the water and its only the 2nd time that I have ever seen it at this point

Image

Image

270 km on the clock now and today I stopped to fill up with fuel, I had ridden 124 km since filling up on the day I bought it and it took exactly 3 litres, so 41 kpl or 113 mpg is what I got running around town, if it carries on returning this economy I will be happy

Image

Pizza n Pasta for dinner tonight and an on the house set onion rings are put under my nose and quickly demolished

Image

Followed by large lasagna and garlic bread plus an extra round of garlic bread, the lot for 209 Baht, spicy, tasty and very filling too
This restaurant has now moved again back to near its original location at 44/20 middle ring road or N 18.44.737 E098.57.261
