Hey there... Just in Chiang Mai right now, I rented a 125 scooter today (of course) and got a taste, sportbike style, of the nice windy road heading up the Doi Suthep today. I must have hit that thing 6 or 7 times in a row, each time faster and faster. Who would have thought you could scrape the pegs at 80 km/hr on those little machines ;-) Anyways, I am heading south tomorrow, down to Krabi to relax on the beaches and check out the riding down there for a week or two and then I will be heading back up to Chiang Mai (love it up here, best spot I have seen so far I think) to rent an XR250, some gear and a tent and hit some of the trails in the northern mountains. I was wondering if anyone is going to be up in this area, and want to hook it up with this Canadian dude. I will be solo for a bit, and also with a couple of Australian friends... Both ways, I will be looking for some good times, on and off the trails. Corey PS: Quick/Stupid question, I have to head into Laos to extend my tourist visa, and I was wondering something. If I have to leave my passport with the bike rental people, how can I cross the border???
