After days of reading this great board and filling a notebook full of notes I have the courage to finally post! I will be in Chiang Mai around March 6 to the 10th. I am hoping to meet up with any of you folks to either ride or more important visit with. It would be great to put some faces with the names and buy beer as payment due for all the fantastic tips, pictures and just plain good advice I have found on this board! People that travel thousands of miles from home to ride rental bikes in a foreign land are number one on my Kewl list not to mention something I just GOT TO DO! If you recognized my first dirt bike in the garage as an OSSA 250 then you know my age. And by the way: Taking 5 hours to do the loop when others did it in 2 is just my speed; count me in.
