Moto Bistro...

And the plan was hatched, Maew with the hat on backwards was in ready to ride, on a barrowed bike, should be interesting... I knew he would be severely hungover but being the military man he is I also knew he would punish himself to keep his word :p

Waiting for Maew to show up... We ended up heading out about an hour late but better late than never.

The guy talking me into another route. I guess the buddha foot print trail is off limits now. I had planned on going up Buddha's foot print to Doi Pui and then down LMS or Bamboo.

Thumpun was a great rider and had great knowledge of the trails. The trails were slick as snoot making it pretty sketchy on the down hills

Thump was hauling ass on the little 150. I did some serious bush whacking, drifting off the trail in the mud a couple time trying to keep up with him.

When was this Jim, or was this just an unseasonal rain shower that caught you out?

Don't recognise the trail but it looks fun, thanks for posting up mate.
