    Hi

    As a part of a trip I am planning a friend and I will ride from Chiang Mai to Hat Yai as a part of a bigger ride to be reported on later.
    We have a schedule to keep to on what I term the down trip the scenic option is not the plan for this down trip.
    Day 1 is Chiang Mai to Chainat. No problem there just keep out of the way of other road users on H11 and H1.
    Day 2 is Chainat to Bang Boet Bay skirting west of Bangkok and basically using H4
    Day 3 is from BB Bay to Hat Yai again using H4.

    I would be grateful if riders experienced in this area can advise of any roads restricted to motorbikes. Google has given me a motorbike route but I do like to double check as google can't even get my route home from the city centre correct all 6km of it.

    Many thanks

    I am riding HuaHin to Chiang Mai/north of TH several times a year.
    Below please find "my" track
    Google Maps
    I will use it northwards again end of the month.

    alternatively via Suphanburi / Nakhon Pathom
    from Nakhon Pathom to junction 4/35 can be very annoying

    I do not recommend riding via Nonthaburi / outer ring road (R9)

    Ride save and enjoy!
