Total distance 521 km

A nice early start today, I was eating my chicken curry for breakfast at 6.30 am and heading out of town by 7 am as I had a long ride that I wasnt really looking forward to on the KLX.
The 105/12 was its usual foggy misty self with lots of lorries on it and I was glad to get off of it and enjoy the peacefulness of the backroads starting with the 1108


Not many photos today as I wanted to get to my destination pronto, I have now rode this trip in one day on three different bikes, the Bm, the Phantom and now the KLX, the Phantom wins hands down in the seat comfort on this long journey but I was a lot more comfortable today than I expected to be and also enjoyed it too


Surprisingly there were a number of Police checkpoints along a stretch of todays ride and I was stopped at two consecutive ones and asked for my passport and driving licence.
I remembered someone saying the new Asean driving licence has the passport number on it so I just handed this over and yes it was accepted as my ID


More water in the reservoir then on my last trip

I check in at the Jolly Frog at N14 01.952 E099 31.224 for 200 Baht

A double room with my own private toilet/shower

The grounds of the Jolly Frog, although I often eat here I have never stayed here before


A view of the River Kwai from the garden

A pork macaroni for 40 Baht at the Jolly Frog, they do a lot of trade here and keep the prices low and no complaints about the food either

  1. Yes I can imagine it was no fun for him on the back for all that way Kevin

  2. It is nice here Kevin, I changed my accommodation today and have paid for a months rental

  3. A long trip today Colin….looks a nice place to relax for a few days.

  4. Hahaha, good memories of this route. D and I rode it, following your route numbers, and he called it the ‘day from hell’. Likely as it was the furthest we traveled 2 up NOT being on main highways.

    I enjoyed it of course, and enjoyed your report as always.

    Cheers
