Dirtadventure Pattaya tour Antonio & Maurizio from Italia.
The phone rang, a booking for two Italian guys from Naples, Antonio the Skipper and Maurizio the coast guard, pick up from the hotel was a 5 minute wait with Maurizio in the lobby of the hotel A bit of introduction and chat while Antonio disposed of some trash from in his room, Possibly it came there the night before after a few beers….
We arrived at bike lane and the guys got kitted up ready to ride, both had plenty of bike riding experience being Italian guys, Antonio currently owning a beautiful Ducati Hypermotard, he showed me the pictures on his phone, it was laden with lots of very trick extra parts and upgrades.
Out we went on the trails and it was straight into the fun and action they were looking for, We rode the usual loop a bit backwards, Antonio was stumped by some of the softer sand stuff and paddled his way through struggling a bit but enjoying every minute of it. We managed to get ourselves up on top of the hill that gives great view across Pattaya and Jomtien one way and down towards ban chang and Rayong the other.
The guys had a blast! near the end of the tour both were riding very comfortably even though they had only really ridden road machines before.
It was great to meet and ride with both Antonio & Maurizio, I hope to meet them again in the future and we ride again.
