    After reading this awesome article: https://www.revzilla.com/common-tre...hailand-its-easier-and-cheaper-than-you-think

    I have decided its silly not to take this trip... if you read the article you might want to as well... But I really have no clue what I am in for. Looking at this link, things are ridiculously cheap!

    It comes down to like 567 for a complete guided three day tour with highly modified CRF300's... I am most likely looking at the offroad trip btw..

    Let's talk about this! If anyone has any experience, pics or insight I am all ears!

    I have not had a guided tour in Thailand or any experience of this company but have both cycled and motorcycled in Thailand and it is a beautiful country with friendly people, well worth a visit.

    My wife & I have ridden Thailand 3 times in 5yrs & love the place. We just rent in different areas and RIDE :thumb
    You don't need a tour, unless you want the 'group' travel thing.
    You can barter the daily rate and the longer you ride, the cheaper it gets.
    There are a few good motorcycle rental places in Chiang Mai and a whole lot cheaper than what those tours will cost you.
    Check out the Golden Triangle Riders website too. A mile of information there. I used Pop rentals Chiang Mai & dealt with the boss himself.

    Mae Hong Son Loop is a must, but take your time, explore each area & the local cuisine is dynamite :dukegirl:freaky
    Do your homework! One trip there will NOT be enough, unless you have about 5 months.
    Have a great trip once you get there rashad :ricky
