    i just bought a honda xr250 in chiang mai...
    paper work and check up ready on monday.
    first i want to go to pai, come back to chiang mai for songkran festival and then finally go to laos and cambodja!
    it took me 1 month to find a bike... can you believe it?
    am really happy when i can drive to pai to test it..
    still got 1 problem tough;
    can anyone help me pick out the right road map for laos and cambodja?
    and maybe a shop in chiang mai?
    thanks!!!

    I would say that you were lucky to find a 250 with a license plate in one month. What is the going price?

    I would also say that you should run out and buy the GT Rider map of Laos. It is one of the best available, and you will be saved an ear-bashing from David Unkovich, who runs this site and publishes the map.

    Hope that you read this topic about Thai bikes not allowed into Laos at this time.

    Let us know if and where you get in.
