Hey guys, i'm fairly new here. Been lurking for a while and reading all the interesting threads, but now I need a bit of advice and guidance from all you good people. Thanks in advance. I'll be traveling to Chiang Mai in the beginning of February and planning to do a bike trip for about 2+ weeks with another 2 friends. Starting and ending point of the bike trip will be Chiang Mai. We ride enduro/dirt bikes at home (Toronto,Canada) and we would like to experience the Northern part of Thailand in a more of a 50/50 paved/dirt roads way. We're thinking of renting a couple of CRF205's load them up and head for the mountains, dirt and adventure Is this a silly dream or actually doable? I noticed in most RR that the northern roads are paved and looking real good, so maybe a CRF250 would be pointless and we should get something more like a CB500X. What can you tell me about this? Cheers.
