    Nackers and I thought we'd stay close to home and avoid the black top as much as possible... only 80 odd km in a couple of hours but heaps of fun and only came off once...Nackers was such a good bloke he picked the bike up without taking photos...what a waste !

    Such a great day out...NE part of Phuket, you wouldn't know you were on the same island as the madding crowds...there's just nothing better than getting out and having a blast with your mate/s....

    So any other lurkers out there on the island..come along....I'm going to be going on this Sunday again..early start before it gets too hot...done by lunch and you've still got the rest of the day....

    keep it out there....

    That looks like fun and yes you are right, behind the bars and hassle, Phuket offers a lot’s of nice hills and rides.
    I was living there back in 96 but that time it was more "Party on" style, now more mellow already, but nice to see you guys enjoying your self’s,

    Keep em coming

    Yeah, it was a great way to spend a few hours.......any other Phuket lurkers want to come out for an easy ride ??
    Hey , I'm an old grey haired 55 year old riding an ancient 250 and can still stay in the young fellas dust , especially when he overcooks the lusty little 440 on the hard pack clay and has a lie down !!!!
    Soooooo....it can't be too difficult.....come and see angles of Phuket you may not have seen.
