    There are nice big bikes for rent in Chiang Mai. And the mountains up North are fantastic.
    Due to having so many days left near the end of my money, I'm gonna use my daily commuter
    and head to Loei.

    Don't have a map - or a plan. Except to follow promising roads.

    Way to go

    You don't need a big bike to tour. Toddle along on a small one and enjoy the journey, rather than just the ride.

    I toured various parts of Europe and the British Isles on a Honda 250 in the '90s....... all without maps. I just told my mates I was off to kiss the Blarney Stone, or to buy a Swiss Army Knife in Geneva, or whatever, and would be back in a few weeks.

    Here in Thailand I have done a few decent trips on small bikes. Click below to see one I did a year ago on my 1997 Honda Dream. The photos were taken with my first digital camera, an Olympus Tough TG310, which I had bought only three months before. Since then I have acquired a better camera and improved digital image processing skills.

    Phuket - Khao Lak - Ao Nang round trip - ADVrider

    I look forward to see reports of your trip.

    The Dream is my weekend ride of the last ten years; my daily ride is a bicycle.

    Hey guys, made a detour to the border with Laos. I was so lucky to have had a flat tire yesterday afternoon. The other day, I started riding at 4 am... Turns out that the iner tube had been improperly vulkanised. WTF?!? A new tube was 100 Baht - installed. Let's get this streight: Risk a flat to save 50 Baht?!

    It makes me wonder about some Thais' attitudes to spending money on necessities.

    A previous school had 5 IT technicians (with one or two IT engineers, I suppose). There is the school splurging on payroll while saving an investment into networks. We hardly ever had broadband at the English Department. This state of affairs was generally accepted. Buying 2 dozen DSL lines instead would have worked at

    But hey, Thailand has almost 1,000 schools with teachers - but no students.

    It all seems to make sense to them.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Oh, ahh - I meant to type Expect. :thai wai:

    I also went to Loei with the girlfriend, it has some cool sights you'll enjoy. If you have time, I recommend seeing Chiang Khan too, it's neat since the town looks historic and is a cool place with it's night market.

    Are these water buffalos docile?

    On my salary, I couldn't afford a smart phone with camera.

    Had to push the bike quite a distance when the badly "mended" inner tube blew out once again through the old hole.
    Many Thai bikers stopped and offered to get me petrol. :thai wai:

    I have some photos of a former trip to Petchabun province - will search for those. Sorry to disappoint!
