    Hey guys !

    Thanks to let me join you onboard. My name's Eric and as the title said, I lived in France. I follow your website and forum from a while and I want to thank you a lot for the job, it's very useful and rich.

    What about the Golden Triangle ? Back in march we did the Mae Hong Son Loop with two mates, unfortunately I rented an SUV, fearing for them about riding 2 wheelers on south asia road (I've a previous experience in Vietnam which is pretty fun but scary). My bad, I both underestimate their skills and missjudged Thailand. We were surprised by the quality of the road, and the kindness of people, their pretty chill and respecful on the road ! However we rented Honda Dream 125 to explore remote ethnic village in Mae Hong Son area, great day !

    For march-april 2017, we'll be back in Thailand, but the main goal will be Laos. From Chiang Mai, where we will rent 4 Honda CRF250L, we'll cross at Chiang Khong and make a two weeks loop in Northern Laos (Pakbeng, Luang Prabang, Nong Khiaw, Luang Namtha,...). For sure I'll order your map ;) And we will share the adventure on the forum.

    What about my ride ? I used to have a BMW F800R, however I'll switch for a more off-road kind : Huqvarna 701 Enduro (order form to be filed by Sat.).

    Maybe we will catchup and have a drink with some of you in Chiang Mai ? :)

    Eric

    PS : sorry for my bad English
