Total distance 179 km

The KLX got a 3000 km oil change at a Shell garage today, as its running on Shell oil I thought there was as good a place as any to find it.
137 Baht for the litre plus a bit extra that I had left over from its 1000 km service and off I went, the oil change itself was free

A bit of damage to the road surface here
Image
Good scenery, hardly any traffic plus a mostly decent road surface makes for a fun ride
Image
At Pang Term theres a couple of helicopter landing pads
Image

Image
At Mae Tung Ting I turn right and on previous trips along here there has not been a sealed surface between N18.57.944 E098.41.835 and N18.57.859 E098.42.462.
This is now being surfaced and apart from about 50 metres still being worked on the rest is finished so in a week or two this should be completed

I take a left onto a road that is a concrete surface for a very short time until N18.58.224 E098.42.772 then its a mixture of dirt, concrete and occasionally a bit of asphalt all the way to the 1095

A new road for me today
Image

Image
A surface like this is easy going
Image

Image
On reaching the 1095 its a quick lube of the chain then a right to ride back towards the 107.
I always used to look forward to and enjoy riding the 1095 but sadly nowadays I only ever use the section between the 107 and Pai if I have too as its completely lost its appeal to me and I was relieved to take a right onto the 3009 and ride another new road for me
Image

Image
A couple of playful friendly dogs along here

Image
Now a third one shows up

Image
The 3009 was a much nices quieter road with some decent bends along its length

I ride to the 107 then turn right and on home
Image
Walking to the restaurant and lots of pigeons at the moat
Image
A big vat of Moo Hunglay and thats what I have tonight, not the whole vat though
Image
A large portion was 60 Baht plus 12 Baht for the rice, I only just about managed to stop the lady before it got covered in green shit though, thats not something that I have encountered before with this dish.
It was deliciously cooked as it was when I ate this dish before at this restaurant right next to Dang bike hire
