    After a brilliant track day on Saturday it was tough to wake up at 4am to meet the Superbikethailand club for their ride to Chaiyaphum, but I'm glad I did as it was a fantastic day!

    Diverse mix of bikes from Ninjette 250s all the way up to a Hayabusa with a lot of Kawa 650's in the middle, a nice Gixxer K9, couple of REAL CBR 1000s, BMW F800GS, etc.

    Gas stop somewhere near Lopburi-

    We then proceeded to Pa Hin Ngam National Park-

    More bikes kept joining us and the group kept growing in size-

    Pa Hin Ngam is famous for it's views-

    And for fields of mountain flowers and odd rock formations-

    Nice and cool up here looking out over vast forests and a sea of clouds-

    The park is huge but fortunately you can hire some transportation-

    We had lunch at Pa Hin Ngam and then rode down the mountain to meet up with some more guys-

    Here we are at the entrance to Sai Thong National Park-

    The road in was a bit challenging and I was feeling fortunate that I was on the Versys-


    Everyone made it in one piece!

    Because of the difficult access road this park was rather deserted and we pretty much had the place all to ourselves-

    Nice little restaurant with a big cooler full of cold drinks so we grabbed some water and set off on a 3 km hike to the Pha Hum Hod viewpoint-

    Wow- what a spot!

    The hike took us through fields of the same flowers we saw in Pa Hin Ngam National Park-

    We didn't leave the park until close to 5PM and I got home exhausted but exhilarated around 9PM! Talk about a FULL DAY ride!

    Thanks for a fantastic trip Superbikethailand!

    Yeah, I had no idea there was anything to see or do in Chaiyaphum!

    Happy Trails!
