    Hello from Chiang Mai, not really a new member, but a new owner of a Honda CRF250M black.

    First ride out on the Samoeng road and up over the wet dirt mountain path to Mae Wang district.

    This is a FUN bike on the paved mountain roads. After a short run up Doi Suthep to get used to the handling, I felt very confident with this bikes handling on the paved road, very predictable and consistent... and it doesn't do too bad in the dirt, although geared a little tall.

    Gas milage was great... quieter than my friends D-Tracker when going through the hill tribe villages. I might just keep the stock exhaust for now.

    Anyway, hoping to make a TON of rides on this around the northern part of Thailand.
    Hoping to hook up with other GT-Riders. I live here mostly year round, retirement visa with multiple entry and I have nothing but time and gas money...do my own tire changes on the road and capable of basic repairs.

    Any upcoming rides?
