Max, Darren (maybe Jon) & I are planning going for a trail ride this Friday (9th December, 2011), all are welcome. It probably won't be too technical as Darren is recovering from Knee injury, but should still be a lot of fun.

If you want to join let us know.

Looking forward to seeing the YZ vs. the KTM in a dogfight soon! A straight line acceleration test would be mildly amusing.

Unfortunately I'll be forced to ride another super dull 4 Stroke 250 this weekend.
Boring, wont this thing go any faster..........

If anyone wants to suggest a meeting place & Darren maybe suggest the route due to his condition.

Hopefully you're not referring to going through that dyke?

Negative.

We can still sneak around the dyke and for those slighty more frivolous souls still save the 20 baht entry fee. Which is an enormous relief financially.

Just back from my mechanic, my bike won't be ready until Saturday, he took the carb apart to clean it and he still has to check the valves clearance. Doesn't sound all to good for me tomorrow, will have to wait until Saturday for riding :(

was really getting into that dirt super highway we were riding on Suthep today...pity about the blown rear shock seal on the KDX.
on closer inspection there was oil coming from it.
will defo be giving that road some more time in the future

i ended up with an 11ml open end/ring spanner,more than happy to return it to the rightful owner as i don`t have anything it will fit :?

Well Darren lied, "not too technical" my ass.

This was the route we did, sneaking around the 20 bht barrier via trails, then north to Huay Thong Thai resevoir.

Then west up the mountain & south west. Then through the Hmong village to the infamous "Turtle Trail".

Lunch in Mae Rim, then an "interesting" route back through some nasty ruts.

N.O.B underway on Doi Suthep

The Infamous "Turtle Trail" (quite over grown being the start of the season), here Dave working his way up.

Couple of really nasty steep rocky sections here

& some ruts

1st casualty - Dave's rear light assembly, fixed with good old wire ties


2011-12-09_222526.jpg



Then Tony discovers on his new (to him) KXF 250 chain is bar tight - none of us have a 32mm wrench, bike up on end slamming the back wheel doesn't work

Lew then discovers the 2-stroke auto-mix on his KDX isn't working,a leaky carb seal is the culprit, so he limps back to the car park.


The two WR's (a 250 & 450) on the trails

We tried this new place for lunch in Mae Rim, it;s about 1/2km east of the P.T petrol station on R 1096 (west of Mae Rim), excellent food and efficient people
