Thailand: The new day commenced with us flagging off from Pimarn at 8.30am and all of us left the Nakhon Sawan hotel with high spirits. The journey went well and we got to indulge in the beautiful scenery that surrounded us. There was a bit of rain in some parts of the ride but it was nothing that could stop us.
Around noon, we stopped for refreshments before heading to Lampang and also fill the petrol tanks. Everything went well except for one thing: I ripped my riding pants that was sponsored by BMW. Not to mention, I ripped it at the crotch area. Not a very pleasant experience at that moment.
We then continued our journey through the hilly tracks and from Lampang to Chiang Mai. The road was in good condition and the panorama was extravagant. We reached the hotel at Pornping at 4pm and had a meal in the hawker stall next to the mosque in Chiang Mai.
