Motorbiking in Thailand has long been a passion for many people for a number of reasons. For some it is the dream of heading out onto the open road through some of the most beautiful scenery in the world and touring throughout the country at a comfortable pace. For others, it is the chance to satisfy their desire for adrenaline and go off road through untamed countryside, jungles and over mountains.
Whilst in general motorbiking in Thailand is not as popular as other activities, perhaps due to the traffic congestion around Bangkok or the lack of rental equipment in more remote areas, there are a number of dedicated individuals promoting motorbiking in Thailand, as well as dedicated locals who head off each weekend to go motorbiking. Often in more remote corners of the country there will be local groups of motorbikers cruising along the roads, provinces in the North and North West, Khao Yai and Kanchanaburi for example are perfect for motorbiking with quiet winding roads and stunning scenery. The proliferation of scooters in most areas means that rentals are generally limited, but if you look hard enough, there are a number of motorbiking companies in Thailand, offering a range of services. Popular activities include motorbiking tours which can last anything from 2 days to 2 weeks, travelling through several provinces depending on where you are based.
Operators will offer a number of touring bikes depending on requirements and all equipment is provided. There are also motorbiking companies specializing in off road and moto x biking. This is a relatively new activity in Thailand, but with more people looking for adrenaline fueled activities dirt biking is becoming more popular in the region. Enduro Madness is one of the leading dirt bike tour companies in Pattaya for example, offering guided tours around the hills and mountains around the Eastern seaboard of Thailand. There are also moto x tour companies in some of the more touristy regions in Thailand offering rentals or guided tours.
