We rode the snot out of the scoot in Chiang Mai and had the tire come away from the rim while riding the switch backs Memories!!! Oh yeah, and I nearly fell on my arse when I forgot to remove the chain from around the wheel before riding off.

AdvRider...it's the rider, not the ride!

was that a cvt or a 3 speed with a auto clutch.

More pics and a great story can be found in IlMostro's excellent Fall ColoUrs Tour ride report.

Good dual-sport pics in there, too, from other participants like Gaspipe. Looks like it was a great ride for all.
