    This has been a perennial query and until now I had not seen an operator offering this service in Bangkok.
    Until I came across this flyer at Pirelli's yesterday.
    BKKBikeTours1LR.
    BKKBikeTours2LR.

    CAVEAT
    Note I have had no dealings with them so check into insurance, bike condition etc before hiring.

    information that may be of interest for some on here,
    HarleyToursLR.

    Again same caveat as first post.
    No knowledge nor dealings with these guys except that K. Pat at Pirelli felt comfortable displaying their flyer.
    So do your research before booking.

    Hi Blackb15,

    A bike is better and more fun than a train, however all the roads out of BKK are highways of one type or another with heavy traffic.
    The road to Udon is a highway. Some guys avoid highways at all costs and some don't mind them.
    My personal route out of BKK is North to Petchabun (route 21 just past Saraburi) and once up there the fun really starts.

    Thanks very much for info. I think the problem is trying to hire the bike in BKK or even Pataya for a few weeks. In Chaing Mai its really easy but not so other places .

    Cheers and safe riding
