Ride out to Sisawat, Kanchanaburi

Sinakharin Lake was formed when Thailand dammed the Khwae Yai River in Si Sawat District of Kanchanaburi Province. Our ride today takes us along the eastern side of Sinakharin Lake and up to the ferry at Si Sawat.

Today’s ride was quite a long one and I think the longest ride I’ve done since I got the bike. Given all the curves and bends on the route, I might have done better taking Chanya’s CB650F. The Vulcan is not really suited to winding roads at high speed like sports bikes. I am really going to need to investigate getting a gel seat modification for these long rides though.

Anyway, we took the scenic route around to Si Sawat and stopped for lunch at a floating restaurant. Actually, I don’t think you could call it a restaurant, it was more like a houseboat with a lot of seating. Our meal was mainly fish, but it was fresh and absolutely delicious.

Once we finished our meal, we took the ferry across and rode home. The cold shower when I got home was just the ticket for those sore muscles!

For those who like the ride experience, here’s the long play version of the video
