Hello all.

Great resource. Thanks for accepting me on the forum David.

My first time in Thailand. Coming over from Jan 11th - March 3rd.

Paul I'm in a similar(ish) situation to you. Travelling with my wife so am limited on daily mileages as she doesn't want to do more than 2 hours a day. I'm borrowing a bike from a mate in Phuket but want to ride the North. In the end I decided to freight it up via lorry to Chang Mai ,(2000 BAHT) to give us more riding time in the North....initial plan was going from there over to Lao and then down to Bangkok where I was planning on taking it on the train back to Phuket.

However the tour link David posted using Chang Mai as a touring base for a few weeks looks like a good compromise so my plans are evolving. Tbh with 7 weeks we can afford to be a bit fluid and play it by ear...

Good luck with your plans.
