    This is a real ride for bigger bikes, but all motorcyclists are welcome to come in & join. Note too that smaller bikes will be a lot quicker on the tight narrow steep winding 30 kms from Samoeng - Bo Kaew.

    If you're not sure where Huai Mana & Bo Kaew are, they are on the GT Rider Mae Hong Son Loop map.
