I managed to get a few days off to ride and where else to ride but to Thailand .To make things interesting
(which means difficult as i later found out) i decided to ride to Pak Bara in Satun via Wang Kelian
border post in Perlis. Spend the night there by the beach and the next day ride to Betong.Initially i wanted to ride through southern Thailand.Unfortunately with increasing violence in recent months i decided to exit via Dan Nok border in to Malaysia, ride to Baling and enter Betong from there .
The ride to Perlis was great and towards the end i was having too much fun : )
The bike is still new to me but it was a great handling ride.
So after entering Perlis everything was new,and the road to the border was a real village road.
Border passed and in to Thailand i went.Smooth roads and a smooth ride to the beach.
What more could there be ?
Bought these bags from the US and its such a real essential touring item.
Packed and ready to leave.
Early morning weather check.Looks ok so far.
And this is the road in to Thailand immediately after the border.
Macam pasar malam ; )
Took a nice ride to the beach and found this motel near the beach.
Sometimes i think any hotel is fine as long as the parking is good ; )
Covered parking here.
Found this other ''resort along the beach''
Nice beach though.
Not too bad.
Now for pics of my bike. Don't complain !
Click to see the reflection of the clouds on the sea.Cool!
My new wall paper.
More reflections on the sea here.
The cool part is i've never seen a reflection on the sea as its always moving.
No more shiny bike.
Where to now ? Hmmmmm
Nice Thai roads.
The sign says...
Whats the saying again-''once you go bag you can't go back'' ?
Reached the border at Dan Nok and left to Betong via Baling.
Apparently the only road tunnel in the Kingdom ...i think.
View from my hotel room.
Not too bad.
THATS IT about Betong.
There's more , lots more , but due to censorship regulations
i'm unable to provide further info.I can be bribed though ; )
Email or sms for easy payment scheme.
Leaving Sin city the next day.
oops, did i say that !
Bike needs a wash badly.
First decent trip with the new bike.
174kmph only so far.New still la
Not too bad a distance.
