Hey Folks, For those of you who I haven't met through my mostly solo adventure of Canada and Alaska, here is some background. Last summer, I had the opportunity to spend 33 days and 6800 miles riding the wild north. Because of some great folks here at ADV, my trip was flawless. The guys I met from Anchorage even threw a BBQ for me. I was grateful for all the beta I received, and all the encouragement. So, my next trip, I leave to celebrate my 40th birthday in Thailand. I get to Bangkok on the 16th of January. I would like to ride up north and then down the beaches. I have already been told, not to rent a bike in Bangkok. And this time I am taking a buddy who also rides. Any advice on where to get bikes, travel info, anything that you guys think would be of help. Thanks ahead of time, I will get the trip report done faster this time and hopefully with lots of pics of those topless Europeans!!
