Lol better prepare for some stops on the way. It takes me 11 hours by car with 2 stops. Bike is not the same. big bike doable, scooter 3 days.
Its doable in eight days at 100+ km per. But finding a decent rental set up for touring is not easy, most rental bikes are best for city rides.
The road to south has been under construction for 6 months and still going. Drivers to south and back north are silly. Ur best bet is day time. Night time so many big rig trucks with the stupidest smallest tail lights. I would say not much to offer as well. Better fly or catch the bus. I drive south every 2-3 months irritating.
apnariya, maybe you should look at a map and read about Thailand's traffic accident rate for bikes..Edited: 19 September 2017, 13:24
Easier to buy one and sell it on arrival.
You'll get a good second hand one for around 25-30,000 baht. And almost get you money back.
Better than renting, and saves ranting!
if you eventually get there of course.
And if you succeed in your planned journey we look forward to you posting a rant about driving standards, bad road engineering and any other negatives. Good luck.
I thought he was going to rant on about a bike he bought or rented or something...
To rent or rant? That's the question. LOL
