    Hello everybody, i'd like to introduce ourselves.

    We're Max and Theresa, a german couple that is travelling SE Asia for 6 months with motorbikes. We are 23 and 20 years old.
    We bought 2 Yamaha FZ150i in Kuala Lumpur and spent the past month discovering malaysia.
    We had a really great time there, met some really nice local bikers that helped us around.
    You can find some a little trip report for malaysia here, including some images:

    We crossed the border into Thailand just a few days ago, staying in krabi at the moment.
    Our plan is to ride thailand, then go on to cambodia and laos, then all the way back to malaysia and onwards to indonesia.

    We know its rain season atm, but well, thats the way it is i guess, so we will make the most of it.

    any travel advice is highly appreciated, regarding where to go to, what roads to take, .... we are looking forward to it.

    Greetings, Max and Theresa

    Raining season, you mean clean season or green n' lush season? You mean fresh air season with plenty of rooms available at lower rates season? You mean that season that forces you to slow down, maybe even hide under cover for less than a hour well the actual rain falls, often only a couple times a week season?

    For route planning captainslash.com is a must visit, it's the best resource for finding the great side routes to take you from town to town. He really has been everywhere in Thailand. Ian's list is great but I would suggest passing through; Santikhiri, aka Doi Mae Salong, well in the Mae Sai area, Phayao too.
