Sounds perfect, but by next week do you mean Monday?pikey wrote: Inspired by Ally's forays into obscure parts of the Samoeng loop, I pursuaded her to repaet some of her journeys for my benefit next week. If anyone with a dual purpose/motard/Adventure bike fancies joining we will meet at "Kad Farang" on the Hang Dong Rd at 9:30 am and have a breakfast burrito in the Mexican place there before heading out. The place is just past Chiang Mai Speedway but on the other side heading south.
The plan is to get onto the Samoeng loop and spend the day taking small roads/trails of the main route to generally explore and have fun. Note: Ally has said that there will be frequent stops for picture taking so if you like WFO everywhere then this is probably not for you. But if you fancy spending the day exploring lesser known routes (no gnarly stuff) on your doorstep, feel free to come along.
Ha ha, you'll see a missed call from me as I just tried to get you to let you know about this. The date is wednesday 22nd mate. Hope to see you at KF.Fishenough wrote:

Just in from Arunothai & the Thai - Burma border & bloody hell it is still H-O-T out there. So that's it for me - changed my mind - NOT going to KK in the heat to drink a few beers for the night & back again. I also reckon it is also going to cost a minimum of 2,500 baht for petrol for the return trip & I'd rather spend that riding in the North & doing something more constructive.Davidfl wrote: Khon Kaen Bike Week
who's going from Chiang Mai.
I reckon I'm 75% on for leaving Thursday to overnight in Loei, then Friday & Sat in KK, then back to Cnx via Loei.
Got an overnighter in Chiang Dao tomorrow, then all being well Loei on Thursdsay.
Where are all the riders & trip reporters" gone from Chiang Mai & the North?
Pikey where are you????How about this? Both locals and visitors alike sometimes want to buddy up with others for a daytrip or a bit longer. If we had a subforum where people could post their proposed trips in advance with dates and loose itineries, others could look and see if they wanted to join?.....

Anyone up for a tarmac & scenic ride?
Great if this could be a Max 250cc ride.
Meet at Kafe @ 08:30, leave @ 09:00.
