Hi all!

We want to practice to ride offroad, pls, share any info about offroad motorbike tracks/schools/gear rentals/clubs in CM. Looks, like this part of motorbike life is hidden for farangs.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for but try Transmoto Sport (http://www.transmotosport.com/). They do have a kind of moto-cross track where you can practice techniques as well as do rentals, can organize off-road trip for novices up to hard-core off-road trips and so on. On their website they do have a few tips on dirt bike riding which you may find useful. See http://www.transmotosport.com/dirtbike-riding-techniques/riding-dirtbikes-101-part1.asp (Fundamentals) and http://www.transmotosport.com/dirt-bike-riding-techniques-part-2/dirtbike-riding-techniques-part-2-cornering.asp (cornering).

Yes, they are CM based or to be more precise they are located in Mae Rim almost opposite the X-Centre on road 1096. Coming from Rd 107 go about 100 meter past the X-Center and turn right (north). A few hundred meters onwards you will find Transmoto Sport on your left hand side.

I'm always open to get together with fellow offroaders. Pick up a few of Davids GT Rider maps of the areas as they have correctly laid out a portion of the tracks we have done in Northwest Thailand.

I'll probably head out to Transmoto Sports track today in the afternoon for a spin on his well prepped motocross track if you want to get together.
