There's a very good riders venue here.
Might be a bit smokey then though!


Rider's Corner! The owner has a 250L as well. Lovely folks and a great place to eat, beer, and meet other riders.

Yep Taranaki, that's the one I was thinking of.
Excellent venue.
And owner Phil and wife Khun Som have a whole stable of bikes inc Harley, Dakar, Triumph Triple, many KTMs and the first 250L in Chiang Mai.

So that's where they assemble Bonnevilles! I assume Triumph executives are there all the time checking their factories...

The KLR would be perfect for Thailand. The Versys is very popular here, as is the KLX250.
I enjoyed that succint analysis which brings to mind the endless moaning in the US about emissions regulations here that are barely a flutter in the face of the gale force winds of change elsewhere around the globe.

Is that coffee shop near a waterfall? I was in that area about 6 years ago and we came across a place that looked very similar right beside a nice waterfall.
beautiful pics, thanks for sharing! I might be headed back there sometime in the fall.

I haven't been getting email notification even though it's marked, so have just now noticed some latter comments.

Thanks Casey; indeed SE Asia is a wonderful area for riding, mainly because each country is so very different from its neighbour yet so accessible. Hope you do it.

'Bikerfish'.; no, that particular coffee shop is not near that particular waterfall but I know the one you mean so will include a pic later.

Thank you 'PapaYolk'.

'Bikerfish', I believe the Coffee Shop you are recalling is the one on the Chiang Mai to Pai road and is named 'Pankled'. If you went their you would most likely recall their Indian Chief.



The nearby perennial waterfall is named 'Mok Fah' and if you went there you would recall the track.




Regards.
