    Inspired by an article in 'Bike' magazine here in the UK where a guy rented a bike in Chiang Mai and rode the MHS loop I booked a flight to Chiang Mai and arranged to rent an XR250 from Mr Mechanic.
    I had a great time right from being picked up from the airport by the delightfull Mrs Mechanic to meeting the revered old git in the Kafe on my return to CM.
    I decided to head for the Golden Triangle after getting a GT Riders map and found it easy to follow, I stayed in Tha Ton ,Chiang Khong , Chiang Kham, Nan and Phrea, I found some fantastic roads and really friendly people.
