In 2017, head to Thailand with Vintage Rides!


Let this new adventure be part of your New Year's Resolution.

Chiang Mai is at 310m altitude, the city has around 250,000 inhabitants and the old part of the center occupies a surface of 2.2 km2. No snow was there on Christmas day, only sun and a 25° temperature – perfect for a 25th of December. In Chiang Mai, there’s also 10 Royal Enfields, which have crossed almost 8,000 kms each. 36 riders, including 6 British and 3 Australians, blazed the Golden Triangle’s trails at the border of 3 countries: Thailand, Laos and Burma. Since the beginning of the season, Francois and Guillaume have tasted 52 pad thais – and surely as many Chang beers. For the new year, we have summed up the 10 reasons why you should go for a motorcycle trip to Thailand.

1- Ride through Asia’s most beautiful roads
Go up, go down, go up again and take the exhilarating curves and turns of the Mae Hong Son loop! Your Royal Enfield takes you to the secret roads of North Thailand.
