hi guys, i'll be riding up from singapore, solo, some time this june. planning my trip up to south thailand is easy enough, but shit gets real crazy up in the north. first things first, please note that i'll be riding a GSXR600 which is pretty much set up for the track. i do not have access to another bike and am not very keen on renting (there's a certain attachment to this bike and i want to see this trip through with her). (1) from chiang mai, the first thing i want to do is the ride the 1800 curves to MHS. thereafter, i'm not sure whether to finish the clockwise loop or to simply ride back. i've read some very useful GTR reports and it seems to me there are lotsa areas where roadbikes will have it tough (or rather, from pai back to chiang mai). personally, i hope to at least touch the border of Myanmar (Burma) but i have no intentions of riding through. thoughts? (2) after completing (1), i hope to ride to laos, and again, i want to touch the border to china and visit boten. thereafter i want to go down to Luang Praban. i'm totally unsure about how to go about (2) because it seems to me that GTRs that have done this all did so on dirtbikes and through trail routes. not sure if i'm going to be able to do this on my GSXR600. (3) assuming i get to do (2), i intend to re-enter thailand and catch a train down to cambodia and visit ang kor wat. i am open to simply riding down but to be honest, i don't quite fancy the idea of riding all the way down alone because at that point i would have spent some 20 days by myself (unless of course i can find someone to go with me). i know my questions seem to be one big mess of ??? but each GTR report i read only raises more questions than answers. hope to gain some clarity. thanks in advance!!
