Just rode my new scooter to Samoeng and back. Started in Hang Dong and spent four hours on two lane blacktop full of hairpin turns. Gorgeous! Lush. Rained half the time. At lunch for a dollar in Samoeng and then headed back up the hill to Mae Rim. Wow, this is some of the best motorcycle riding I’ve seen. I learned to ride in the Gold Country of Northern California. Those were dry hills most of the year, blond grass. This is the wet, tropical version, with steeper elevations.
