What about something like this :

There are actually some trails to explore that are not on the map where LivingLOS hurt his hand/broke clutch lever a few weeks ago.

Looks good Max - Jon doesn't want to do anything too crazy as he's not been riding for 6 months and the WR has been sitting.

Id like to suggest a name for the first new trail found "Any Excuse" in recognition of the fallen one :RE 55

We started off with Adrian, alexuk,Derek and Scott,Ian, John, Matt,Phil, and crs on his way to join us later.
At Huay Tung Tao Phils bike died,so he decided to get it home.
Meanwhile crs had a slip trying to cross the water duct behind huay tung tao and is in hospital atm having his bones checked
We took the singletrack to mae rim, then up the buggy trail and on to the viewpoint, it started pouring down so was slippy all the way up.
After that, we were going to eat at the hmong village, but I was behind and didnt see the rest, nor tracks, and I turned to the other hmong village, Mae sa mai, and went home alone
Just got a call, they're now having lunch in the tourist village

Sorry to hear about Chris I hope he's ok, I actually saw an ambulance arrive at the lake not knowing it was for him (where is his bike ? does he need some help with it?)


3 weren't able to make it still 8 bikes for the ride, great turnout in the wettest part of rainy season.

After the first bit of single track westwards towards the HTT lake, my KTM 300 died, feels like its dirt stirred up in the carb, will clean it later.......didn't want to risk it happening again up in the sticks, so in the pickup it went.

Went for a cartwheel down that steep bit just before the concrete water duct back of htt. Fractured humerus head - but not too bad so just a sling for a few weeks. Trying to catch up with a bad hangover - didn't engage brain and used front brake sharp. Me and bike did a nice flip though. Some Thais helped me get the bike over the duct then I rode home. C'est la vie.

Kun Hoo is at the Maldives club tonight - might hobble over there for a cheerup.

Here's a few shots from yesterday.

OK... so we started off gently, then I discovered why the guys didn't want the Super Enduro there



Yep... there's a way up



... with a bit of help from your friends at times



Just a walk in the park really



Sorry for the blurry shots... but its rare to actually get a shot that demonstrates the steepness.. so, here's another one



... and away we went



If you look closely at the left side of that big mossy rock... you'll see frame paint from a Honda. Shh.. don't tell anyone.



Its amazing how the steepness disappears in a photo. These aren't wheelie skid marks... everyone's gone down there with the rear wheel locked. I was a wimp and went down with the engine off, in gear - using the clutch as the brake. I haven't ridden anything like this track for 30+ years



Yeah... this one's about to get some frame paint too



The lads decided to collect some firewood on the way through...



.... as for the frame paint... its OK, I put a mud poultice on it before I took it back
