...to ride from Chiang Mai to Phuket on a Dream? After the tour we did with Mark & Luke, Mick & I have hatched a plan to ride from Chaing Mai to Phuket over a 10-14 day period next Christmas. We are in the planning/feasability stage at the moment & are looking for some advice, tips, do's, don'ts & ideas. The basic plan so far is to fly into Chaing Mai, buy some new Dreams then head down south the sell them when we get there. The way we figured it, the cost of a new scooter should out way the drama of a second hand one if it breaks down. Now, 1: Is it possible to just rock up at a dealer, hand over the cash & ride away? 2: How hard would it be selling the scooters in Phuket at short notice? 3: Is renting an option considering the state of some of the rental bikes? 4: Does anyone want to buy some new ones (maybe for their hire fleet), rent them to us, then arrange the transport of them either way? We figure this is the backbone of our plan, so once we get it sorted, we can start working out routes, hotels etc. Feel free to chime in with any input you have.
