Hey everyone!

Having a great time in Bangkok and will get back to riding a real bike when I get back stateside on Saturday. I was stuck riding a 250cc dirtbike around Cambodia so at least I'm curbing my addition.

Being that it's over 30 degree's Celcius here, I could see our bikes really overheating and not surviving.

Also, I guess trying to teach a newb how to ride in REALLY heavy traffic was a bad idea....

Riding in Bangkok. You are brave. If you want to find a fun road go to chiang mai. There's a mountain that's a national park right outside town. We rented Honda Dream (brand loyalty) motorbikes and took it up the mountain. The road is amazing as it snakes up the mountain. Very tight. Maybe too tight for our bikes to really enjoy. You'd never get out of first gear. It would be awesome on something smaller like a kart or minimoto bike. Maybe a 125 or 250 GP bike. I saw a NC30/VFR400rr in a shop there but it was a customer bike not for rent. Now that would have been fun. Anyway we were draggin pegs on those scooters. It was too tempting. If you are up near Kachanaburi there's an outfit there called Tyga Performance that specializes in NSR250s and some of the small V4s. Maybe they'd let you go for a spin.
