    Hi Guys,

    A short clip of Frank / Ted / Me having a bit of adventure with the KLX's / D-tracker around Khao Khiew.
    Really nice area for weekend away out of Bangkok and doesn't take long to get there.



    Cheers
    Brian

    Gday Brian.

    Just how far are these tracks from BKK or Pattaya? Your mate looked like he wasnt at home in the sand. LOL. All good fun.

    Good clip mate.

    The tracks are just over 100kms from Bangko and about 50 kms from Pattaya. They get pretty busy on the weekends, but quiet through the week.

    I know them fairly well, it's difficult for me to find time to ride on the weekends, but if anyone is up for a weekday ride let me know. I live in Bangkok and have a pickup that can fit another bike.

    Hi Rex,

    About 90km out of Bangkok. 30KM before Pattaya. We will probably stay around Bang Sean area next time as not too far away. There is also a quary around here.. Not a big area, but looks like lots to explore.. For those of us not up North.. A good weekend alternative.

    I had my own fun trying to get out of a big hole going down through the grass on the mountain.

    After struggling and a few attempts to get up and out

    Looks like fun to me!

    I live in Bangkok, have a KLX250, and would like to ride out there and then ride some dirt like in the vid.

    Got a day job, so i can only ride on weekends.

    Anyone from Bangkok or Pattaya want to ride out this Saturday or Sunday for a day trip?

    Mike

    May be it is the rainy season.. but we have never seen any other Dirt Bike riders around here.
    Next weekend will be the 4th or 5 th trip down.

    Some cyclist on the roads.. but no one on the trails at all.
