  1. What's that you say a new GT Rider bike? Well yep, sort of - after a mere 240,000 kms she's had a new paint job.

    Parked up at home in the shade before the loop

    It was 40 Celsius + when I left home & you would have never anticipated riding in pea soup like this!

    And what a welcome relief it was from the heat.

    I even got a bit carried away to get the bash plate & muffler protector polished / chromed.

    The good stuff: R108 bends & the bike

    The price: a mere 4,500 baht & well worth it. Go see Nat at the Piston Shop in Chiang Mai if you want a good cheap value for money paint job.
