    Here is few pictures from the road, I do have to say that it is not most entertaining road to ride as there is nothing to see, lot's of potholes on the almost all the rural roads and few road constructions as well, lot's of small villages where kids running cross the road and like normal thais,never look around before running...

    Hi Marco,
    Thanks for the trip report and pictures
    It was good to catch up with you too, and I am sorry I was a bad boy and came out with no money, so you ended up buying me lunch. Hey maybe a good tactic for the future. Wallet stays at home, but not such a great idea because the Khon Kaen police are getting a bit keen, and last week my wife was fined 200Baht for not haveing license on her. They would not let her go along to the police station later and show it.
    Hope to see you for a ride before too long Cheers, John
