I like to do quickies, say in the afternoon. If possible less traveled roads. Sorry about specifics, I don't record time or distances but it is easy to follow. Starting off the XCentre we went less than 2 km. On the left green sign AWAY xyz Resort. Followed the perfectly tarred road up and up. Beautiful and tranquil. After some 15 km or so it hits another road. Didn't go straight but took an almost 180 degree backwards. Quickly the road gets from bad to worse, at least for me with 3 small wheels which makes it next to impossible to avoid the many big potholes. You get bumped from behind, from front and from the left. Plus the steep inclines require a minimum speed of 30km/h in order to keep the clutch fully engaged. Otherwise the clutch will slip and I will have a hard time to get moving again. Once we got going it became quickly obvious that we had reached the point of no return. Consequence= a wonderful ride through pristine forest, lonely. Additional entertainment were the many shouts, insults, prayers from my permanent pillion. We had no idea where and when the trip would end. It turned out that we hit the Samoeng road just above the Royal Sirikit Botanic Garden , finishing the loop at the XCentre. Would love to go back tomorrow but not sure if I am not asking too much of my street vehicle.
