    Just head to ChiangMai, hire a bike and DO IT, Sylvie - it really is that easy, and for an experienced rider a real treat.
    If you only have time for one longish ride, do the Mae Hong Son loop, and leave yourself a little time to enjoy the town and sights along the way.

    I been driving in Italy as well with Bike, car and 20Ton Semi, and roads in there are heavent to ride wen compare Thailand, just take your time, stay on your lane, look carefully when riding mountain roads as drivers often cut the corners and come against you in your OWN lane, but formost enjoy the sceenery.

    One thing i must point out to you, watch out anything what comes from your left, people here coming out from every street and do not stop and wait you to pass, and even when you are close you think they wait,, no they dont. Running dogs, cats, cows,chicken,pigs, just name of the few are using roads as well.
    you are experienced ride so you know thse things, but Thailand has it's own driving culture, nothing to compare Europe...

    Ride Safely
