At this time of year the weather in northern Thailand is yelling at us "Get on your bikes and head for the hills", so we did.
Three of us (all on Hondas) headed north from Chiang Mai into the mountains betweenhere and the Burmese border.
Here's a bit of what we saw along the way.

First stop at Chiang Dao, into the mountains along wonderful twisty roads, past ethnic folk (Lisu), into a Shan refugee camp with Burma in the background
(we were invited by the village chief), to Wat Fah Wiang Inn on the border, to a cave Temple (Wat Tham Pak Piang), to the ancient ruins at Chiang Dao,
closer into Chiang Dao then home.

This was my first 'tour' on the Rebel 500; lasting only 3 days.
I really like the bike.
Comfortable, enough oomph for these riding conditions, good in the twisties. :grin2:
So if anyone is considering a Rebel; get it.
And if anyone is considering northern Thailand; come!

This looks simply breathtaking! I wish I could come join you for this trip also :(

I have a question for you. I like your rear rack, where did you get it from? Would you mind sharing the details?

Hello Boki.
That rack was actually purchased from the Honda dealership (Big Wing) here in Chiang Mai.
I've been considering top boxes, saddlebags etc but decided a back-pack on a rear rack is the right set-up for me.
Best wishes.
