Local Bike Trip

Just cleaned up the bike. Got a bit dirty on the roads yesterday as a result of the rain.  We'd gone into town and got caught out... Coffee in Global, the local builder supply company. Well today also looks overcast but we do need to get out and have a trip....





Mine is the one of the left....


Wanna to this as you can see from the mirror reflection...
A little bit of "Easy Rider" for those of you old enough to remember it.  We just did about 110 kilometers all up as a round trip. Hardly a major passage but fun. Getting more and more used to the bike and Wanna tells me it was comfortable on the back.. So all good.

We first stopped at a place called Beng Saen for lunch.  It is on the lake shore with a series of floating restaurants all laid out in a row on small pillars over the water. Just park up and choose one from the 20 or so which were open. All chasing for business. Lunch was served where we were sitting out on wooden floored bamboo shelters and comprised grilled prawns, grilled fish on charcoal, Yam Tallay and fried rice. Water to drink, no beer as we were driving. Fantastic spot. From there we went to the dam site but only for a few minutes as we had visited last week with Hadyn. 

Then back through some rural roads home.Now for a cold beer.

Bike went very well. Cruised around 70 kilometers/hr except when slowing down for pot holes, tractors or dogs... Latter no nice when trying bite your legs...


See all the safety gear, water and helmets.
This is a stand alone 'pontoon' restaurant rented by the day, comes complete with full head on very loud Karaoke!!!!!






These's the food. Forgot to take the shot before I started eating... Apologies....



Rice Fields. All a bit dry due to lack of rain.
