Smile chiang mai in january

Hi, I will be at the HU meeting in Chiang Mai and will be doing the Mae Hong Song loop and whatever else seems interesting. I am happy solo but if anyone else is about some company would be good.

I am currently in Bangkok giving my KTM 640 a well earned service, will be here for a good week, more I think. Not decided what to do then but I want to ride Laos and Cambodia. When is the HU meet so that I can factor that into my plans?

Chiang Mai

Hi guys
I fly into Bangkok on Jan. 6th and will be at the meeting on the 16th as well. Looking to hook up with someone as well. I rode alone there last year and did the loop and the golden triangle as well. I kind of plan on taking a flight from Bangkok to Ankor Wat and then fly to Chiang Mai and renting there. last year I rented a Kawasaki 250 and that was fun. Hit me back we can talk from there. Larry

Hi Duncan
The Horizons meeting is on the 16th Jan. It looks like you are planning some interesting riding. I will have to hire a bike there and I think it is complicated getting a rental through the borders. If you are about I could run up to the golden triangle area and wave you on from there

Hi Larry
I would be great to ride with someone who knows the lay of the land but it looks like you have allready done the bits I want to see. If you don`t mind going over old ground plus some new routes then it could be worth meeting. Let me know what you think.
In any case I guess I`ll see you at the meet.

Cambodia

I too will be at the HU meeting. Then I've got 2 weeks free to play before I go to Cambodia. I'll be riding there for a month if anyone wants to meet for a ride or 2....or even a . or 3.

Chaing Mai in January

Well it looks like a nice group lining up for the meeting and that will be nice. Yes I have done 30 days of riding there before and would really like to do some more of Laos or Cambodia but if I do that I really would like to hook up with someone. If I do not find anyone for that hitting the golden triangle again is a great area to explore and so it the loop. If anyone wants to email me more off list I would love to talk about your plans. I see where someone was talking about taking a bike across the borders and I do not think that is possible or at least not easy but I do not know for sure. I had planned on renting one and driving it to the border and then walking across the border and renting another one in that country and driving it for several days. The big problem is they take your passport at most rental places so have not figured out just how I will make it all work. That is why I planed to fly from Bangkok to Angor Wat as then I would have my passport and could rent ther for a bit and then fly to Chiang Mai for the meeting and do some more there. If anyone can fill me in some more I would love to hear from you. Larry

I'm trying to figure out a decent riding plan which incorporates spending xmas somewhere nice, but may end up being in the middle of nowhere in Laos of Cambodia. I may then need to back track up to Chaing Mai for the meet but can't guarantee anything yet. Will hopefully have my bike ready for Monday.

On my way!

Larry and I have been exchanging some emails. A big trip always makes me a little nervous as the day comes closer. Today I am a little rattley. I am on a morning flight to the States, a few days there and then I arrive in Ho Chi Mhin City next week on the 11th. I have the Chaing Mai meeting on my list and I am looking to have a LOT of fun. Wine, women and song!!!!!

Any one wanting to ride together, please shoot me an email. I have a very loose schedule and can be flexible.

Martin in Cartagena

Luang Prabang is nice, and if you like beaches/islands so is the Mekong delta (Pakxeng if you are after a 'bigger' place). If you're looking for more 'action' then Vang Vien is probably the place ;-)

Re rentals, border crossings, ride reports etc, Motorcycle Touring & Maps: Thailand : Laos : Golden Triangle (and its forum) is the place.

If things work out, I'll also be at the meeting.

It looks like there will be a good crowd at the HU meeting, so I guess it should be possible to see who`s planning what on the day.
I have never been to Thailand before so am pretty flexible on routes etc.
see you all there.

Howdy,

I arrived in Chiang Mai yesterday, yes a little early, but plan on doing some riding around here, possibly Laos & Cambodia as well as the Mae Hong Son Loop before the 16th.

Anyone fancy organising a big ride out, maybe just for a day after the meeting? Also if anyone is around at the moment fancy a ride or a ?
