The GT-Rider.com site was first registered in 2001 by David Unkovich, a legendary expat Australian rider who has lived in Thailand for the past 3 decades. It has always been a privately-owned website with a “public forum” for expatriate motorcyclists in Northern Thailand, hence the Golden Triangle (GT) component in the GT-Rider.com name. Over the years, it has expanded to include riding content on neighboring countries across South East Asia.
GT Rider is not a club or an organisation... It is an online community of like-minded riders who freely exchange information and share knowledge. An underlying objective is to help boost motorcycle tourism numbers across the SE Asia region. This is done by providing accurate advice and detailed information that makes it much easier for individuals or groups to plan trips here themselves.
- Some website visitors use the information we provide without making any comment or contribution, and that is perfectly fine with us…
- Others find themselves captivated by one or other of the S.E.Asian countries they tour, and end up living in the region.
Many of those who stay in SE Asia become long-term contributors to this website. Earlier contributors are appreciative of the newcomers efforts to contribute to and expand the collective knowledge contained within the site.
