The first Kanchanaburi ride of the season.

Frank the Tank, Filip and Leify from Pattaya.

Big drive for Leif all the way from Pattaya for a weekend of the best trails.

Now we know you have the Kanchanaburi riding bug.

I was on the road at 4:45 am. Take out the fuel and 7/11 toastie stop. Talking 2 hours 10 mins with the early start.

Going back to Bangkok 3.5 hours. Sunday afternoon, with no stops.

Filip took on a tree that was slightly sticking out in the track. Ripped the top of his boot off.

Killer Mountain Saiyok, Kanchanaburi.

Listen carefully for Leif imitating a crow call near the end.

Plus a very special technique to turn the bike around.
