    Top video Dave with an open honest attitude towards Thai people and their beautiful country.

    Gt- rider is my number one site for all bike riding information around SE asia.
    No other site comes close, a testament to yourself Dave, well done.

    Here's another part Riding the Golden Triangle to the HQs of the ex Shan Freedom fighter - drug warlord Khun Sa.


    Thoed Thai & Khun Sa's old camp / HQs is one place in the GT that everybody should visit & stay overnight one time if you really want to appreciate the GT & its history.

    Thanks for coming Silverhawk - we had a good time alright.
