Thailasse - Thanks a heap for posting your report on this website. Its refreshing to see riders coming into South East Asia, getting info from the web site and in return giving back with a report of their travels. Thank you.

The area surround Chiang Dao is some of the most scenic you'll find in northern Thailnd with the limestone karsts and thick jungle. Glad you guys got to experience it and enjoy the ride.

You had me laughing when I saw your picture taking on gas :D . Good on you.

Pics look fantastic. Great stuff.

Hello honda honky nice to meet you in GT-Rider forum :D

Heh great! :D I try come next time in North Thailand 05/09 and I let you know (of course Bign Tall also!!) days when I arrive to Chiang Mai.

This sounds like a recipe for a fun riding group that enjoy seeing the backroads of Thailand. Hopefully we can put together a fun ride for your return.

Keep on posting, great stuff.

Bign Tall, you listen all right. I plan a one day trip from Chiang Mai and I hope I can see Bign Tall on the road a fun. But first I must return to Chiang Mai and North Thailand. :wink:

Ps. Bign Tall, this is two You Tube-videos from Hmong Pakhia side trip. I', sorry we speak videos only Finnish language.
