Last month I took a two week trip around my favourite spots in Kanachanburi and continued riding up to Tak to Umphang via Mae Sot and Ban Rai (Uthai Thani). This is not a trip report, just a few photos I took along the way.

I did not take a camera with me, most of these photos are taken with my iPad, a few with a GoPro. Photos in the order they were shot.

Thanks Klaus, but you would think I could at least spell the name of the province correctly by now!

BTW, contacted the Dirtshop earlier today, they have those skid plates in stock, 3,290฿, I'll be getting one at the weekend.

Let me know when you are passing through on your way back down.

I love your pictures of the Khao Laem and the Srinakarin reservoir and in particular the "under the swingarm" picture Klaus mentioned - simple although probably difficult to take but beautifu.

If you let install the skid plate , tell them to put some Rubber stripes between the Frame pipes and the Skid plate .
Otherwise the Skid plate will vibrate with some rev's and that sound like shit .

Leaving CM on 12.1.15 target is Tak , next day i guess near srinakarin lake the small GH that we found a few weeks ago.
by the Way , do you take a pic of that GH ? will be a good tip for others.

No I didn't take a pic and when I upgraded the software for my Montana yesterday I lost all of my marked waypoints too!

Rode past the other week and stopped to see the owner. I'll try and take a pic next time I'm up that way.
