Blog 86 Bangkok Airport to Prachin Buri

18th December

So Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Singapore, here we go and ridden by myself on Yamaha's RT Wabash e-gravel bike. Thank you to Steve and everyoe at Raceways Motorcycles for supporting the daily blogs that will accompany the ride. In case you haven't been following so far may I by way of introduction suggest you have a peek at the below 4 min 32 sec film, it's bring you bang up to date.


The Ride So Far


So the journey across India had about it a particular flavour, worth going back a few blogs to see what I mean. There is no place like the Asian sub-continent; ie India anywhere else in the world that I know. Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Camboadia and Singapore make iup South East Asia and for the next 15 to 20 days this will be where we quest for adventure on the Wabash.


It'll be a slow start will I get my bearings, catch up a bit but this is latest 'bike portrait' taken yesterday in the setting sun. It's a bike that has given me some real adventures - and I haven't forgotten my motorbike riding, far from it, there are serious positives with bike riding over cycling, but if you're a smart thinker, there are very interesting ideas and aventures you can have with both vehicles.

No way, I couldn't find it


Meanwhile, I'm off to a nice and slow start, not sure how it's going to pan out. Arrived at Bangkok Airport 2am, slept on a bench, set off at 9am. Collected batteries and here we go....!

Wow, what a beautiful cut of your travel so far - your "The Ride so far"! Congratulations, you picked some of the very impressive moments (for all of those who have seen them all...) and it gives a great very very compact overview of your veeery long trip.

Since the Thai cuisine for me is one of the best in the world, beside of the Italian one, I am super happy for you, after Nepal (which may also have fine aromas, but not this super clean as Thailand...). Kitchens are tidy, with wonderful flavours, always freshly cooked even in the street bike cuisines, just marvellous! Take care not to get to much weight, dear Nick!

Good road to you

Bonsoir Jean-Claude. Oui, ce petit excours est impressionant. L'Inde doit être incroiablement intéressant. La seule raison pour la qu'elle je n'y suis jamais été, c'est parce que tous mes amis qui y étaient, sont tombé malade. L'hygiène est un grand manque. Peut-être dans 90 ans, quand la situation a changé, j'y vais...

Saluts, swissralph (suisse allemand, pardon pour mes fautes an langue...)
