Info Here Right on the Money

I just wanted to say the information here is right on the money! This is my first trip riding in N. Thailand, I have been here 3 weeks and gone over 3,000 km so far (just about every loop I could think of!) just from the info here. I did it all on a Phantom 200 from Mr. Mechanic at 450 Baht a day. The board and it's members will do you right. Buy the GT book and the B&B North Thailand map and that's all you need. The book is a few years old now, but for the most part is still accurate. BobS gives good advice and gave me lots of good pointers, hotels, helmets, etc. I guess one thing I could point out is that for me, the roads were much steeper and have a lot more hair pin turns than I expected - a bonus as far as I am concerned! Thanks again you guys for making my trip one to remember. -Russ
