    I was out with a bunch of mates a week or so ago and took a little vid and a few snaps around Phu Chi Fa area after being inspired by Ben’s Phaya Piyak road report

    Vid of the descent of the Phaya Piyak road heading east towards Phu Chi Fa (bit slow as we'd never been on the road before and it's fooking steep!!!)

    Hi Jeff

    Great vidoe's mate! That descent sure is steep! I've only done it in the other direction so far.

    What was the camera you were using? I'm about ready to invest in one, and everyone seems sold on the GoPro cameras.

    Cheers

    Nice one Jeff. I bet you & the Bonnie certainly enjoyed that ride.

    Could it be that Phaya Piyak & R4018 is going to be the new road sensation of North Thailand?

    It is indeed very steep and my mate Dave from CNX with his F800Beemer did it 2 times and he love it especially he said it's fantatic for street bikes,,, and IF we could close it for 10min and have 2guys in walkey 2-ways and done some really fast runs few time it wud be fantastic....

    maybe SSR guys?????

    Hi Ben,

    The camera is just a point & shoot Olympus 790SW. It's shock & waterproof and has anti-shake technology so it's reasonable on the bike. I use a RAM mount system on the left handlebar which screws into the tripod mount on the cam. The disadvantage is that it's a fixed point-of-view rather than the Go-Pro which can be mounted in loads of places.

    Marco/David - yes a ripper of a road and doing it west to east means you hook into the Phu Chi Fa loop. I'll be up there again for sure!

    Cheers,

    Pikey.

    The angle of the camera doesnt do the road its true justice , was one of the steepest windy roads Ive ever travelled along. Me the chicken was at the very back doing about 10-20kph :crazy:
