Not unlike the first motorcycling trip to Thailand for Phuket bike week last year, the ride was very HOT. As soon as I reached the border Bukit Kayu Hitam / Danok, we have to ride into the Immigration and Custom complex. Its hot and the motorcycle lane is very narrow. Even a mopad would find it difficult to manoeuvre the passport “drive through” counter - what about a bloody big and heavy K1600GTL which is 350 kg by itself and with my luggage - the total weight is almost half a ton.
We ended up using Capt’s Samsunfg Galaxy Tab. As much as I hate Samsung (I am an I-guy) it has been very handy without the motorrad GPS.
