Personally I try to avoid riding much at night here in Thailand. The number of drunk drivers on the roads at night are shocking, add to that the dogs that often sleep on the warm blacktop and the fact that it's harder to see potholes and other hazards at night, the risk of riding after dark seems to increase exponentially.

That said, I've found riding in the wee hours, like after ~2am, when pretty much everyone is asleep and the roads are mostly deserted, can be pretty enjoyable. :happy1:
