Hope they fix some pot holes as well :roll:
I was riding on many tiny rural roads in the Isaan. I was surpruised how much road work was going on.
Well I hope not all dirt tracks.
It would be really good if you could take the time to put up some pics & / or a brief trip outline / summary. Nothing flash or detailed, just a few photos & notes of what was good / bad, you enjoyed most / the least.
I wouldn't worry about them paving all the roads around here there will always dirt for those who want it. Actually some of the dirt roads are in good condition and street bikes can navigate with no problem.
Also in and around Ubon here is a lot of construction on going,, especially towards to Yasothon (Rd 23), they are building 4lanes from Ubon, but they have money only for 24kmeters...LOL
Also from Ubon to Trakan (Rd.2050)there is HEAVY road construction for first 10Kmeter's.
Road towards Det Udom(Rd. 24) was finished last year and now is 4 lane AFTER Ubon University.
Road towards to Amnat Charoen(Rd.212) has been good for many years already.
Dear David, I know I owe this board
The Roads up there Should All Be Paved in Gold anyway the Amount of Money the Leaches Have Ripped off Innocent Farangs!!! Still Can't Believe How Backwards they are Considering the Amount of Money Passes through there every Month??? Well Trained to Get Money by any Means Possible but Obviously To Dumb To Keep It :twisted:
Just lucky I guess the only place I ever paid tea money was in Bangkok. Ride to slow woht them to bother with me :lol: I have gotten stopped a lot in Udon I use what little Thai I have to engage them on coverstation until some supervisor reminds them they are not there to chat with me and he runs me off. 8) Got everything legal. The cops that have been around for a while recognize me and don't waste there time on me. So when I get stopped these days it's usually by a diappointed new guy :wink:
