The Route 108, 3005

Total Distance 120 km
Image
Riding south along the 3005 and its a lovely new surface that wasnt here on my last trip this way
Image

Image

Image
A great surface with lots of good curves
Image

Image

Image
A village thats on another road and not on todays menu
Image
Fuel is available from a hand pump at N18.07.464 E098.08.653
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
In this village I take a concrete road out to the right and on previous trips it has turned to dirt, today the concrete goes further
Image

Image

Image

Image
After 20000 km of mounting the bike with it on the side stand and often pivoting it around also on the side stand I snapped it off.
Here is my hopefully temporary aftermarket side stand
Image

Image

Image

Image
If anyone else has the same problem make sure this is in this position
Image
As in that position it wont start or stay running when in gear
Image

Image
There is a short 400 metre break in the concrete road and this easy dirt takes its place
Image
Then its back to concrete until N18.04.620 E098.07.199 when I reach this village
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
A quick look around then its a ride back until N18.04.241 E098.07.459 where I turn right onto a dirt track
Image

Image

Image
The track isnt going to go anywhere and I cant be bothered propping up the bike just to ride through this gate so its time to ride back
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
Heading further south I take a right onto a dirt track at N18.03.867 E098.07.712
Image

Image

Image

Image
A nice ridgeline track with stunning views
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
Useful for holding the bike up
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
I ride up to the top and very conveniently another prop up point
Image

Image
Its just a walking path across the ridge now so time to go back
Image
A bit further south and hopefully I will continue along here tomorrow.
I think getting back to Mae Sariang and hopefully getting the sidestand fixed is the best course of action now
Image
I do a left at N18.03.349 E098.07.986 onto a dirt track to start the ride home
Image

Image

Image
Easy going and pleasant scenery again. The surface returns to paved at N18.03.700 E098.08.527
Image
On the way back.
Once in Mae Sariang I go straight to the Castrol Bike Point who quickly weld my sidestand and put it back on, the whole job done for 30 Baht
Image
Moo kata for 108 Baht
Image
With ice cream
