Ride Thailand/Laos for 2 weeks starting last week in Mar 08


Nov 20, 2007
I'm looking to ride the North East part of the Golden Triangle en route to Laos hitting, Huay Xai, Luang Nam Tha, Luang Prabang, Plain of Jars and back on a solo trip or if anyone is interested in doing the ride as well i`d be glad to have some company. Several questions come to mind even after reading all the info on the GT-Rider site (excellent site by the way!!);
1) is this doable at a leasurely pace
2) how is the weather at that time - i don`t mind some rain, heat or dust
3) is there a problem with poachers or other such `undeasirables` that may be a danger
4) any suggestions on where to stay or eat along that route
5) what are good roads along that route, i like the curves as much as the dirt. Dont have a map yet but trying to get one. I understand they are out of stock for delivery
6) any suggestions on which hill tribes are of interest
7) is there a problem with bike theft or will a big lock and chain suffice. In South America we had to put the bikes indoor or a compound every night

i know, loads of questions but any feedback at all will be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.
