    Gday & Welcome to GT Rider...
    The GT Rider forum exists to complement the Golden Triangle Rider website
    Home

    [​IMG]

    It aims to build up a motorcycle touring community in the Golden Triangle & surrounding region, by sharing info / tips, and Road and Trip reports.

    [​IMG]

    All Road & Trip reports are welcome – no matter how big or small. Even just a brief summary or outline is ok - anything is better than nothing! Your input will ensure that the aim of the GT Rider board (to build up a motorcycle touring community in the Golden Triangle & surrounding region) works. No matter what, or where, or how far you ride, you are welcome to join & contribute.

    [​IMG]

    Please share your information and experiences to make it easier for all of us. By putting something back in, the amount of info improves, helping all of us.

    To avoid trivial questions and subsequent snotty little replies, note that with a little research, all the general info for touring North Thailand / Laos / Vietnam you might need is on the main GT Rider site Home

The local Thais don't do it & they speak, read, write the language, understand the culture & system & they know it is NOT worth it = DON'T DO IT. We don't know how to outsmart the system & can't advise you how to. Our advice = buy LOCALLY!
