Transcon: Northern Thailand Motorcycling Paradise

Northern Thailand is a paradise for motorcyclists, especially those with an adventurous stomach 😉 We got the bikes serviced in Chiang Mai and now my Bullet is feeling crisp!

Noel and I are just swinging the bikes from left to right as we glide through the mountainous north of Thailand. We swung by Chiang Rai and its weird White Temple, which is most stark against a clear blue sky. Last night in Thailand as we continue east…
