N.Thailand Ride (it's like mexico but different)

I am way overdue for a RR. I've done a couple rides but no photos but today I took lots! Steed for the day is a Honda AX1 250

Dang it!!

My rides starts out going thru Chiang Mai's agricultural university, nice

Not to far before I hit the dirt and make my way over to the road that will take me to Someong

I've ridden this road to Someong at least 1/2 dozen times but always fun

I think this is some hippy/yoga hangout

I saw this last time but didn't take a photo. You see this kind of stuff everywhere here

Lunch spot in Someong

Lunch is just simple but filling chicken fried rice

OK on to the good stuff. I am trying to get to Mae Win going South towards
Doi Intenon

Nice river crossing


I have no idea what this sign says but I'm going in!

For you animal lovers, wildlife shot

I saw this out of the corner of my and stopped and walked in a little ways

Back on the road

OK now I'm feeling a little lost so I stop at this small and I mean small village way back in the mtns. I find the village school and ask where in the hell I am. !


Cute little grubbers!

So the school marm said I missed the turn a ways back, I think that what she said anyway? So back I go

Rice paddies

Yeah I'm pretty much not sure where I am so I start to head back. I've already ridden 70 kilometers so I better head back the way I came
I did try and find another way back to the hwy but got denied

Back I go down to the river

So now I'm back near Someong and see this bike. These guys don't need no stinkin 950 v-twin super enduro bikes! Sometimes less is more. Check out the engine heat shield for his leg

I saw this place on the way and had stop for a quick hydrate and a photo.
Those are all empty Thai Whiskey and Rum boxes. I think someone has a little drinking problem

the dude sitting in the back looked a little hammered (for real)

So that's it, 165 kilometers for the day! Oh yeah, anyone wanna guess the year of the AX1 I was riding??

You guys are way off on the bike. The AX1 was only made in Asia from 1990-96. Then the XR & XL took it's place. The one you see in my RR is 1991 and has over 200K kilometers on it! Mr.Dang just takes really really good care of his bikes
