    There's no doubt you guys enjoy yourself in the North of Thailand.
    You really do get around. I'm also glad you find the old GT Rider maps & books useful.
    Thanks once again for the contribution(s).
     
  3. Many thanks for you Davidfl, the pleasure is in my side. GT-Rider has a great maps, A Motorcycle Guide to the Golden Triangle guide book has a awesome, also yours many trip reports this GT-Rider forum. I want to thank all GT-Riders too who writes in here especially who writes image trip reports.
     
  4. Captain_Slash, I just read your trip report Mae Sariang-Huai Hom+Mae Sam Laep and thinking, sometime I must to ride La Ang Nua - Kong Loi section and La Up - Papae - Rai Lo section. This is an very interesting area for me.
     
  5. Thanks Captain_Slash for link, magnificent views and quiet. This area should be covered by my future plans.
     
  6. Thanks to all you guys for the great photos and posts on this year-old thread. The DCU (Dedicated Companion Unit) and I are headed out next week to celebrate our anniversary and plan on the first night at Navasoung Resort. Since I'm a Finn too I get that secret Finnish discount! Last time I was out there I lost a day with a flat tire so hoping the Rubber Gods are good to us.
