  1. G'day Fellas.

    Another fantastic weekend at Baan Ricky..
    Lots of Credit to Alan, Harry for putting this together and Misha for keeping the times etc.. and last but not least Misha's girlfriend Cat for putting on the food.
    The food was fantastic..

    Arrived Baan Ricky with Mike..
    Managed to secure both KLX's in the back of the pickup with out losing one along the highway.

    Mike and I went for a ride at 4.. Following the track to the Enduro course.. Great trails to get there..
    On the way back some fantastic scenery to stop and admire.

    That night a bunch of us went up to Hindad Hot Springs.. Great place, boiling in the ponds then cooling off in the cold river.
    Mike has a couple of great shots of the ponds

    This sign in the hot springs made us laugh... What are they trying to say?...

    Sunday was Enduro day.. My GPS has it at 8.8 km.
    Will post the track later.. Once the orange markers are gone you will never find you way through.. Suggest you do this before the rainy season.
    It will be over grown by the next dry season.

    Alan, Brian M, Rubin and Matt early morning.

    Mike and I decided we wanted to be back in Bangkok at a reasonable hour.. Left the guys at the lunch location

    Tony took this pic of us going over the bridge.. To our surprise we had to ride up a whole bunch of steps on the other side to get to the road.
    The guards in the national park just watched and laughed.. Some entertainment for the day..
