Re: NEW - "Asian Trail Riders" - trail riding every Friday

I'm up for Friday. Would also like to keep tarmac to the minimum.

After talking with Justin we agreed on going to the Mae Jo area, lot of single tracks in the area, and just a few km of road to get there.

The meeting point is at the rimping center on the road to Mae Jo at 10am. The idea is to leave around 10, so it doesn't hurt to get there around 9.50am.

For those who don't know where it is, it's on the 1001 (main road from town to MaeJo) right after a big crossing with traffic light (I think the second) on the left side. It's a big shopping mall with also a big McDonalds sign, hard to miss. If anyone has the gps coordinates he can post it.

turned out to be quite a hard ride for me today, mostly cos I couldnt kickstart the bike, and as I got more knackered the hills got steeper and gnarlier. Some great tracks, loose rocky uphills and steep down.
heres a clip of me helping justin choose a line

You call that a line! LOL

Better get that rebound damping sorted mate!

Sorry I couldn't resist the temptation.

At least you were out riding, unlike moi thanks to my lack of skills.

Great to head out with some new faces on the trails.

A warning should be when your buddy with a video camera points out a good line to take with the camera rolling. Even better is after you bin the bike you realize nobody else in the riding group went that stupid way as they all took the correct way 15 meters to the left. :lol3

Dazza - No amount of rebound adjustments will help my arse out........sadly.

harri- Fear not as I've been binning the KTM as of late also so it does not feel left out. Even managed to lay it down in a short time hotel driveway recently. :LOL


The funny thing is after we all got down the steep section of hill and regrouped, I led the group off, got off trail without realizing it (20/70 vision doing its part) and dropped into a dry creek bed, front end hit a large rock and over the bars i went. Got up and wondered where everyone was and noticed the group was riding off about 20 meters away from where I was on the actual trail instead of bushwhacking with me.

Could anyone of you guys with a GPS post the gpx file so others can also enjoy the nice trails in the area.

Yes we had a very good day riding.
I still don't have a gps, I just followed single trails I remembered from a few months ago, but I think at least 3 persons had a GPS so they should have the track (that's what I was asking actually).
