Up North


Recommended Posts

Hi, anybody interested in riding up North once boarders are open? We are planning to bypass Malaysia into Thailand. Traveling from Hatyai to ChiangRai than to Udon Thani back down to Tra. Its all rest and relax ride, no marathon or hard riding needed. Along the way, we will visit attractions and temple stay in motels and eat road side stalls. Any interested riders can reply to this post. Thanks

Hi5! I'm also already making plans.. hahaha.. I believe alot of people is also planning.. 

I believe might take another year or 2 (hopefully).. we have to factor in a few things.

1) Situation/volume in Malaysia

2) Situation/volume in Thailand

3) Risk level of traveling to these countries due to lockdown for long period.

4) Group size need to be at least in groups of 3-8 (bigger numbers better but unable to balance speed between bikes/bikers) (also due to risk factors)

5) Vaccine for every group members done. (you dun wan anyone to be down with Fever)

Lastly, please please... make sure every single rider KNOWS HAND SIGN and mirror is usable! I had an accident because the rider doesn't know hand signs (pump petrol) and mirror cannot view back riders.. One more thing, learn how to slowly down and stop at expressway as a group.. 

Please test your riders irregardless of experiences. Racer or tourer bike, test their knowledge just 1 week before rushing off to the borders.. :) 

Kindly read thru at least the intro section first before decide to post any comments.... thanks... :cool:

 

Please proceed to this website/web link if you guys have any technical issues on Kawasaki Kips/KR150, I'll update the 1st POST as and when there's a new question. Newbies questions on the top as well. :)

The MOST MOST important is slow down, refreshment stop and Fuel.. Slow down hand sign is the most important, the rest can stop and discuss.. :) 

Slow down hand sign

Signal left or hazard light on, hand sign out, check mirror make sure at least 1 person behind you is doing the same then slowly come to a stop.

Need Fuel (Fuel light on) low fuel.

Make your hand into a gun, point to your fuel tank.

Refreshment stop

Point to your head, this mean, next R&R stop.
