We have written some travel guides for travelers in Northern Thailand. Before you go, be sure to read the riding tips. We also recommend using a motorcycle with an engine capacity of 125cc or more to explore Northern Thailand, as there are places where a less powerful bike will not be able to go.
Also make sure you know how to use the brakes on an automatic motorbike on mountain slopes. Scooters with automatic transmissions do not have engine braking or downshifting, so improper use of the brakes can lead to brake failure due to overheating and subsequent boiling of brake fluid.
