All Road & Trip reports are welcome – no matter how big or small. Even just a brief summary or outline is ok - anything is better than nothing! Your input will ensure that the aim of the GT Rider board (to build up a motorcycle touring community in the Golden Triangle & surrounding region) works. No matter what, or where, or how far you ride, you are welcome to join & contribute.

but please note: On Importing Your Own Bike. All the advice is don't! It is not worth the time, money or stress. The local Thais don't do it & they speak, read, write the language, understand the culture & system & they know it is NOT worth it = DON'T DO IT. We don't know how to outsmart the system & can't advise you how to. Our advice = buy LOCALLY!
