Thailand best motorcycle roads

I have completed four motorcycle tours to Thailand and whilst by no means am I an expert I have enjoyed riding many of the top rated motorcycle roads in the north of the country. I marked them all on a map for my own reference in planning my next ride there and thought this might be something other riders thinking of going there could find helpful.

Taiwan Moto Tour

I have been wanting to do a motorcycle tour in Taiwan ever since I watched Charlie Boorman ride there in his By Any Means television series back in 2009. Not an easy task when there is no regular motorcycle rental permitted for foreigners. I decided eventually to follow the title of that show and ride Taiwan by any means.

Okinawa

I recently went to Okinawa. Japan consists of 47 prefectures or states and this is the only one I had not seen. At nearly 3 hours flying south it is only a little bit less than to the Philippines and quite different to the rest of Japan.

Black Dog Adventure Club ride Thailand

I decided 2017 should be a year I try different things. So instead of my usual solo travel I joined up with a bunch of like minded blokes to ride around Thailand.

GoPro Hero 5 Session Vs Polaroid Cube

My goal with having an action cam was something I could quickly pickup, turn on and aim while riding – to capture things when not able to pull over or just randomly for fun. I enjoy the size and shape of the Polaroid Cube which is easy to hold and operate while riding my motorcycle. The main issue I have with the Cube is it’s long shutter delay from pressing the button (can be a couple of seconds). This means many times the photo captured is of the handlebars as I am putting the Cube back away having pressed the shutter a few seconds prior. Enter the GoPro Hero 5 Session.
