Operating in the far North west and North of Thailand and into the infamous Golden triangle region these tours offer a great balance between Road Touring and Off Road riding. Think about Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman in the 'Long Way Down' TV series and this should give you an idea of what it's about.
Suited mostly for experienced road riders who have little or no off road riding experience, our philosophy is to take you deeper and farther into some of the lesser known regions of Thailand much deeper than you could ever go with a road bike, but combined with some of the best roads in Thailand.
We love these trips as we see a distinct change in the customers after just a day or so riding. With road touring on sports bikes you are pretty much stuck to well, "Road Riding", yet considering Northern Thailand has more stretches of dirt trails than blacktop you are only seeing a small percentage of this amazing country. Once we have introduced the group to some dirt and 'Adventure" usually the group want to stay on it.
An 'Adventure Tour' will open your biking horizons, visiting more places and gaining valuable off road riding skills that can also be taken onto the road. You will gain satisfaction from each days ride knowing that roads are no longer a boundary and the only barrier is your adventure spirit or ability but after a few days with us your ability will improve and with it your pioneering attitude!
The off road sections are classed as fairly easy though we gauge the riders ability on the trips so able to kick it up a notch or two if needed. If you are comfortable on road you will not have a problem on these tours. If you are after more severe dirt riding may we suggest looking at our dedicated dirt bike tours.
Though we mentioned Ewan McGregor etc, we do not use heavy Adventure style bikes as where we go is not suited to them plus the bikes will end up wrecked and you will need every ounce of strength to keep it on line. Instead you will be riding an all terrain bike such as the Honda CRF or Kawasaki KLX with all terrain tyres fitted. These tyres are unbelievably sticky on road and good off road. Do not think we will put you on road with knobbly tyres, this isn't going to happen.
