Trip Planning: 4day try to hatyai in June.

hi bro. It has been year since my last travelling on a bike. I am riding a super4 version s. I have 2 day leave that i must clear within 3 month. so i decide to plan for a short trip.

 

June is a good month becos no holiday in thailand. That means the price will be normal everywhere we go. I have to renew road tax, insurance and coe in may. so june will have enough time for me to re-save up money again.

 

The initial plan is as follow,

1. Sat morning (1am or etc) set off and reach border at 1pm

2. reach town and booked in hotel before 4pm

3. Sun - I need to go pray the 4 side budda in the early morning.

4. Mon - either join a local tour trip (or perpare to return home and stop at kl for a night)

4. Tue return home - leave town at 9am - leave border at 10pm

5. reach sg before midnight of tue.

 

As you can see, i plan a 12 hour ride, it is slow and easy.

 

Now these are still in planning stage. just open for riding buddy becos all my usual buddy i had years ago are not riding anymore. sigh...

 

a old man i am......

 

 

thanks.

hi guys, age is not a concern. i know a 62 year old local rider who shuttles up n down the NSH frequently to Thailand.

 

the entire stretch from Gelang Patah to Bukit Kayu Hitam is abt 800 km. if u guys travelling 100km consistently , take short,refreshing breaks,12 hours is not a problem. Important point to note though, dont work towards a preset timing,take as long as u want if u havent been doin this often. RIDING FATIGUE KILLS YOU.

 

The phantom is more than capable of Hatyai. It is a Honda after all.

Ive read the post regarding the petrol at Thai, saying it isnt suitable for S4s anymore? THe gasohol, so would it hinder the thailand trip?

Gasohol shldn,t be a problem for S4 or any other bike. coz the octane is just right for our bike requirement.

 

if there's a problem in gasohol, than the thai's shld stop gasohol last 2 years ago. Their cars & bikes is still running good.

there are some issues of gasohol with vehicles with carbs. Tests are in progress in Thailand to determine if it its ok

hi. sorry for coming in late. i usually check a few days time.

My name is james, my contact is 96881210.

 

As long as i can gather a min of 3-4 bikes, this trip will be a confirm. Will the interested party leave your contact in here. or sms me. thanks.

 

will the interested party pls suggest a date of your best time (in june). as i suggested, this is a 4 day 4 nite trip (it should include sat and sun). June has no holiday in singapore, thailand and malaysia. I think it will be a good idea to travel on this timing.

 

I am not a newbie but long time didn't ride long distance. I am not a company org trying to make some money. I assure you that every single cent you spend, is going to be spend on you only.

 

with 12 hour on hand, even a scrambler can reach the border on time (test and proven).

 

for the rest of the detail (for eg hotel, itinary, pit stop, etc), we can chat later and i can do the planning. it is not going to be difficult.

 

My msn is [email protected]. my work need me to turn on slient mode, so if i didn't answer your call, don't worry, i will call you back once i am off duty.

For those without long distance experience, best to try a mid distance trip first. You never know how your body will react to riding 12 hours, better be safe.

I used to ride a phantom 200, it should be okay since the ride is at night. Its after all an aircooled bike. =)

 

But buttocks might hurt after 1hr ride due to the vibrations etc. I guess even sitting down with the most comfortable seat also cannot sit for 12 hrs right? haha.

 

I've checked with James, he assures that there is no need for top ups in Thai as the destination is near the border, so last top up will be in Msia. Those who are interested pls contact him

Hi guys,

 

James is actually doing a compliation of people going. Maybe all who are interested, can state their bike model (for those who havent). This is to facilitate James in pairing up buddies for the trip according to the c.c. of the bikes.

 

As for RVF, I'm not so sure, but surely need to bring extra rectifier as backup. Heard that will blow quite easily. Whether or not can make it would depend on the pitstops for petrol. Got to wait for James to reply.

i recieve 2 respond offically (i will miss the name as u know who you are, right?).

 

1. S4 ver S (me)

2. S4 vtec1

3. 250cc scooter

 

 

the reason i am writing the bike here is becos the riding style i encourage is buddy system (same speed cat will look after each other on the road).

 

the fuel stop will be picked once the bike model is fixed (this is becos we need to know the fuel consuming range)

 

Maybe i should rephase about the topping up in thai issue that you are worrying. the place we are visiting is hatyai town. it is less then 20km away from the border. the last fuel station in NSH is about a few km before the border (a U-turn will require to be make). after you have topped up in NSH (before entering to thai) you are most likely not require to top up again for the next 200km. this is the main reason why i said there is no need to top up fuel in thai. furthermore, most activities will be within the town (for eg shopping, movie, food, massage, drinking, etc). taking the "tuk-tuk" is a better choice during town movement.

 

hope the above explanation is useful to you. thanks.

(for those participant)

 

i suggest you may like to give me feedback on

1. which hotel you wish to stay? or what price range is your confort zone for hotel stay? (remember that you are staying for 2-3 night, so staying at expensive hotel may drain your budget.)

2. if there is any type of activities you wish to take part as a group (we go together type)

 

My suggestion:

i have not been to hatyai for many years. I do not know the price range and best hotel choices. I used to stay at pink lady and lee garden hotel. they are locate at the heart of the town, thus almost all activities is within walking distance. pink lady hotel has ground guarded car park. lee garden hotel is also a shopping centre which has underground car park. I would like to ask the brothers who been to hatyai recently give me feedback on other better choice of hotel (best is budget type).

 

My suggestion for group activties are

1. visit and praying to 4 side budda (this is my main reason for visiting)

2. watch a movie in thai language (i wish to bring back some of my old memory)

3. food session like breakfast, lunch & dinner

4. pub and disco visit

5. joining local 1 day tour (optional suggestion only)

 

my suggestion for individual activities are

1. shopping

2. massage

 

additonal info:

1. the fuel stop is pick within 160-200km range

2. each of us will have to ensure our bike did a service & checkup 1-2week before the trip (not last min service & checkup).

3. trye repair kit, rain gear and cash is a must have item

4. travel insurance (with emgence eva coverage), full face helmet, jacket, blinking back light and glove is a "good to have" item

5. we ride for fun only, each of us is responsible for our own safety. be alert and careful on the road is a knowledge.
