::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads

Discussion in 'Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums' started by VietHorse, Jun 16, 2012.

  1. This thread is for a day trip with 455km. Main focus of the trip is National road #55 an #769.

    Let's start with the story about the roads.

    Road #55 has been built long time ago but it was not so convenience for transportation as there is a better road for the same endpoints. Therefore, it has not been taken well care of. After some raining seasons, with some flooding, road surface quality has been known as terrible road, and it just fit for dirt-bikes.
    We have just heard that there are some drivers has experienced driving thru this road and found that almost completed repairing. So that is why this trip happened for.

    Road #769 also has the same story. It's small provincial road but it has been used as alternative road while the main road under re-construction. Now the construction is almost finished, most of the vehicles has top utilizing the alternative road.

    Below is our tracklog for that day trip for your info:

    This trip is for exploring the new roads so I did not intend to gather too many buddies. Just me and a new friend.

  2. Departed from home abt 4:30hrs. Met my friend right at 05:00
    Rode abt 130km then we stopped for breakfast:
     _DSC0370.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    The noodle in this area is much different from what I have experienced. Dont know how to explain. But that might be something customized.

    Where we stopped for breakfast - me with Candy Red VFR and my friend with Black FZ1:
     _DSC0376.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    The pink scooter in the above photo is quite common in Vietnam. It is consider as personal daily transportation means.

    A cup of coffee after the noodle. The breakfast cost us total abt $4 for both of us. What the cheap breakfast.

    Stopped for fuel after 188km before reaching the starting point of the Road #55:

    Here is where we took the turn from Road#20 to road #55:
     _DSC0379.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    The signboard says: Da-mi and Ham Thuan hydro-powerplants -> 40km. That means we will pass two power plants in the next 40km.

    Strange road make us quite cheerful. Took of my P'nS camera to ready taking any photo. This is my Fuji XP10 - the one has waterproof, dustproof, vibrationproof but the image quality is not good, in comparison with my frequently use Canon A620:

    Passed abt 5km with lots of house along the road, we started seeing the twisty road signs - flowers seen also:
     DSCF2084.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Stopped here to set-up camera and others before entering the pass:

     DSCF2091.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Twisty roads:

    Long radius:
     DSCF2110.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Straight:

  3. After some soft bends:
     DSCF2125.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    ... suddenly we saw the signboard:
     DSCF2133.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    The signboad says: "All means of transport, stop for checking".
     DSCF2133.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    This board may be presented very long time ago, since the road has been newly built for some hydro-power plants construction, but removal of this board may take time and costly :D :
     DSCF2134.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    We still respect the requirement, all stopped:
     DSCF2135.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Let's check around first, before someone checking our bikes:
     DSCF2142.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    If you followed some of my previous threads, you may know what are the brown things besides the road:
     DSCF2136.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Yeah, that's coffee. The farmers they use this method to dry the coffee. It's known that natural drying will give better quality than drying by machinery:
     DSCF2137.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    None checks. I checked myself:
     DSCF2138.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Cool:
     DSCF2146.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Eck... Is it cool!? I don't think so!!
     DSCF2139.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Dude, don't you want to make a macro photo???!!!
     DSCF2140.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Hard time for checking, roads still ahead..

    Sign of road repair:
     DSCF2161.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Left side is very deep chasm:
     DSCF2163.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Some small houses beside the road:

     DSCF2165.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    The view suddenly wide opened on the left, it seemed the hydro-power plant lake.:
     DSCF2167.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Yeah, it's. A nice lake within a valley:
     DSCF2173.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    We stopped for some photos:
     DSCF2176.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    After some mins discovering, we realized that 's only the beginning part of the hydro-power lake.
    We kept riding on..
    After abt 10mins, we saw this::

     _DSC0397.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    And that's lake:
     _DSC0398.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Photos may not be able to express all the beauty of this area:
     _DSC0403.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    We were here:

     _DSC0412.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    The lake on the left:

    View from the lake side:
     _DSC0420.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    I was back-up to pose some shots:
     _DSC0421.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Seeya...
     _DSC0422.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

     _DSC0424.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Even though I already knew the road condition but I still feel uncomfortable when passing all the damn big rock with sand at the side - so don't dare to put my knee down:

     _DSC0426.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Anyway, It was nice experience...

  6. Kept riding for 15mins, we reached end of the lake, looked for some locals to ask for the roads:
     DSCF2209.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Rode straight for a while, saw this dam:
     _DSC0427.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Down there is the road to the power plant:
     _DSC0431.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Stopped for a while. I did shout very loud, hear the voice come back from the mounts...

     _DSC0448.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Planned to ride for abt 2-30km more, then find some stops for drink.
    (to be continued...)
     
  7. Forgot to put some water bottle in saddle bags, we felt thirsty and need a stop for drink.
    Left the dam abt 20km, we reached the citizen area, here's a coffee stop we took a rest:
     _DSC0453.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    First time in the day both bikes under a shade:
     _DSC0452.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    wow... what a rest place...
     _DSC0461.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    It's quiet, cool, there was a small stream behind the house.... feel sleepy...!
     _DSC0457.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Stayed there for almost 30mins... Well, need to be on road anyway:
     _DSC0450.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    New built road:

     DSCF2269.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Yeah, It's not my friend:
     DSCF2270.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Oops... Saw the signboard, but both ways are to strange places!:
     DSCF2271.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Stopped for asking again:
     DSCF2272.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Yup, if turning right, we will be heading to another hydropower plant. So we choose the option going straight:

     DSCF2279.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

     DSCF2321.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    A straight road with some nice trees along the sides, it's flowers looked like some snow:

    Then we stopped for lunch. Was too hungry so did not have any photos there.
     
  9. Lunch and rest for more than an hour, we started to head back
    A new road - not really a new one - just the one our bikers not normally ride on as it was known as a bit further than other. It's TL769.

    Beginning part of TL769 showed us a quite good road. Fewer and fewer houses beside the road. Replaced with rubber tree forest.
    We stopped for some drinks at a small temporary inn:

    Hmmm..... Firs time in my life I see such kind of duplication.
     _DSC0473.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Here 's our way home:
     _DSC0470.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Small trail in the rubber tree forest - dirt bike riders would like this very much:

    Sit there for less than 30mins, straight to home.
    I got home abt 17hrs with the Trip A was 445.1km
     _DSC0487.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    Dude, it's exactly same as what I recorded from my Garmin handheld GPS:
     Profile.jpg /::: Vietnam - ACE MTSG - Day trip to explore new roads/Vietnam - Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "VietHorse" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums
