Dear GTR Members & Supporters,

We will have reluctantly changed the format of GTR to introduce a paywall; as well as classified some sections of the forum as premium content on GTR.

Apologies to those people who may be inconvenienced with this development, but the current economic status has determined this outcome.

Map sales have collapsed & banner income is minimal, but we are extremely thankful to ACE Tours & BDS Performance for their continued support of GTR. We wish there were more.

It is a continual effort, involving time & cost, with wear and tear on both bike and body to survey and maintain new content on GTR to share with everyone.
All of this comes at a cost, and GTR genuinely needs to find ways to replace lost income in order to survive, and continue providing quality, informative, and helpful content into the future.

It is often very satisfying writing up trip reports & re-living the trip when posting on GTR; and some threads have thousands of views to indicate that yes, people are following.
We thank those who do follow & appreciate the good work.

GTR now asks you to show your appreciation by simply taking out a 12 month subscription to help GTR continue providing you with accurate, valuable, information for planning your trips.

The fee? Well, we calculate it to be one big beer a month = 80 baht, when you take out a 12 month subscription. Or 150 baht for a single month.
We trust you will all enjoy a big beer a month with GTR via a subscription.

Many thanks for your support over the years, and in moving forward.

P.S. please be aware there maybe a few hiccups in the set up process.
