Some tracks I didnt ride on tuesday were rode today and the ones I had rode were mostly rode in the reverse direction so it felt like a different route

I stop to take this photo and am happy now the GPS problem has been sorted but today another one appeared as my bike went dead out in the woods.
I put it in 1st and ran forward dropping the clutch but the rear wheel just locked up, the same thing happened in 2nd gear.
Fortunately I managed to push start it in 3rd gear and rode out, I think its dirt/dust/shit in the starter button switchgear, as it sometimes starts if you hold the button in.
Hopefully a trip to Castrol Bike Point in the morning will get it sorted as I dont wish to have to return to Chiang Mai

My favourite restaurant here in Mae Sot was Sara’s which did lovely Sri Lankan/Indian and Pakistan food but sadly it closed in june.
Robinson, the owner/chef invited me to his house for dinner so I gratefully accepted

With homemade yoghurt for dessert.
The good news is Robinson is hoping to start cooking again for people on a takeaway menu from his house sometime next month, I will keep my fingers crossed it happens
