Our. Group rides over but it's not over for us let's go. I'm. Sweating, bookies, I love, Tyler. No. God. Monsoon. Time is, hooking. Me down. For. This adventure I'd head back to Thailand, in Asia to discover more about this wonderful country. My Ride will be on the awesome Ducati Multistrada, 950. And I will join it with the dart Asia adventure, touring company, to explore the gorgeous, northeast region. Data. Is your adventures, is the brainchild of this man kevin, is an avid motorcyclist, from the US who, fell in love with this country I wanted to share it with the world others. On the ride will, be some of his friends and colleagues from the US and Jakarta, Thailand. Personally. I was just excited, to be back in Thailand, I'd had a brief taste of it when I rode the road of a thousand corners it's a magical, place and I was eager to discover more. It's, also a country that just loves motorbikes, the, men we all ride low powered, cheap to remembe I step, through and, sometimes. You, see many family members on just one by it's, just a way of life here and I absolutely love. It. Our. Ride will quickly take us out of the city and into the countryside and, that's, when the magic unfolds. As the, roads get twisty or less traveled, and you get to see the natural beauty, of this country. This. Is incredible. Just it's endless, endless. Valleys. The. Beauty. Here is, outstanding, the. Hillsides, you seems like everybody's. Farming, their land what. Do you think it's pretty damn good. We. Then continued, further up the valley and towards fresh local, food and more, astonishing. Views. So. You just enjoyed the beautiful ones we've just come to this coffee shop, Hugh. Is our standing. Here on, the table these. Little balls of fruit. Come. With quite a hard shell peel, that back okay so this is the limey eye. It's. Got a hard pip in the middle don't either. Commands, the taste he's just like a melon, I can, like. Cantaloupe. So this is summer. This. Is like an orange with no skin, it's. Not oh. My goodness, me that's good oh wow, so I just. Like. Really peel it oh I get it now really. Skinny. Sirte. Wow. This, is unbelievable, this is. Hard. Work to get into worth. All the effort this is stunning. After. A great lunch we then met some locals, and took our time to enjoy the scenery. In. This region the roads are just fantastic. The endless farm valleys, and roads that run through them leave you gobsmacked, around just about every, corner the. Landscape, is incredible, and it's just a joy to ride here. But. We're also here in July in its peak monsoon, season, so a daily downpour, or two is to be expected, and when it rains it really, rains which gives you two options ride, on and get wet or calling, it the nearest coffee shop and, we happily chose the coffee shop option most of the time. So, the heavens have opened but, it's not all bad news it's, still warm and the red is, hot it's kind of like having a shower we're here at the Magic Mountain cafe I've, got myself a coffee, looking, out what a view. Thailand. Is gorgeous, we're, right up here in the east corner. Of Thailand, and everywhere. We stopped is stunning. After. The shower of pass we then headed back towards town to go and visit the first of three temples as, we wanted to get a closer look at these incredible structures. And learn, more about the Thai culture. Just, come into a town called now holding, here a local supermarket, look. At this, this is motorcycle. Parking, at the supermarket. In Europe, in America what would we see cars. Everywhere, and, probably wanted to buy explorable game here, in, Thailand, the parking lot is just full of bikes and there's not many cars I look, Thailand, the brother they ride so provides, is, incredible, everybody, ride. So. Here at work Lankan Thailand's. Most famous, Chapel as you can see is the only one with no color totally. Magnificent. And it looks something out of a fairy tale apparently. This is actually been in construction for over 50, years. Oh. Man. This. Baby well. Oh yes. It was well worth it look at that. After, visiting some, fantastic. Mountain ranges and temples, we then said goodbye to the group as the Thai riders would now head back towards Bangkok, and the Americans, would head home, Kevin, gave me the tips on places to ride and now I would go it alone. So, that's it our group rides over the guys are heading back to the airport now but it's not over for us we've still got a few more days here in Thailand, so we're gonna carry on and explore, Seoul can't.

Wait Let's, go. It, was now time to enjoy these brilliant biking, roads and right towards our first scenic stop. First. Off a beautiful waterfall. And it, didn't take long before some, other local bikers came over to look at the mighty Ducati, and they, just loved this adventure, machine. Further. Down the road and we pass by one of the many paddy fields, are here in Thailand, it's, amazing, to actually see how they farm the field and produce, the rice. When. I stumbled, on a local outdoor food market, I just had to stop let's, go and see what they sell in and try some of these local, delicacies. They. Really, do eat just about every, part of the animal here in Thailand, very, little seems to go to waste, oh. Look. At these insects, well. I guess, I should try some, Bon. Appetit. Stop. That BAP think, I'll have another. Different. Quite. Tasty. That. Book wasn't too bad job as I tell the others. Home, just popped in my mouth for like as it is. Not. Good. As I. Wrote past the local village it was a great time to slow right down check. Out a neighborhood, and see what's around. Roadside. Snack we have deep fried banana, greasy. Fried. Crunchy. Polly, just take a really, healthy fruit to make you unhealthy delightful. Pick, me off coffee she, didn't even ask me if I wanted sugar but I definitely got a ton, of that. Well. That puts Starbucks, to shame that is amazing. Sweet strong. After, a little pit stop I then continue through this national park area and just enjoyed, the roads. In. Each in every village there's at least one, motorcycle repair shop as they have to keep all of the bikes running in town so, I coordinate one for a quick look around. Just. At the local garage look. At them for brake pads no. Meat on those at all they definitely got the bull is worth these. Bikes they're everywhere, it seems that a lot of parts are interchangeable. Amazing. To see so many motorbikes and. Look. At it spare parts everywhere. Turning, roads in scenery link all of these small villages, haha. What, fun. Riding. Out of town and once again I wrote past loads of paddy fields, but this time the workers were on their lunch break so, I thought it was a great time to stop see, if I could somehow communicate, and see more of this line of work and how they do it. It's. Sweltering, hot super. Humid these. People have just given us a banana and. Some gorgeous through here fantastic. Lunch time on the paddy field. They. Just start back at work and they're planting, the rice check. This out. No. Job. Thank. You, I. Was. Now getting close to the Laos Thailand, border and about as far north as I could go now. We would head south and right towards more hidden treasures. So. In the northern part of Thailand, the with the Lao border. That water border, control, look how cool that looks we're, not going to be going any further we're going to be seeing in beautiful, Thailand, the countryside, in this northern, sector is, dramatic. It's just absolutely, beautiful to, ride around here non-stop. Beautiful. Scenery. So. One thinking that you're not short of in Thailand, is temples, but this one seems to be quite quirky some, Bartha large statues. And some interesting artwork let's, go take a look around. There's. Beautiful. Carvings, everywhere we've, got a local guy here who's just chipping away making, the stuff and he sells as this is what he's made earlier, look. At the attention to detail in this an amazing. Amazing, just, creativity. Here people just working away with their hands it's, beautiful, to see. We, found more statues, by the side of the road as the end of the day Aeneid and, he had been a wonderful day great. Roads and scenery, and the experiences. In the market and the paddy fields was just unforgettable. I can't, wait for tomorrow. Rural. Village life welcome, to the next morning, and, once again I got back into discovery, more as we now made our way south then back to was Chiang Mai oh. It. Was a humid, day which, of course meant win at some point but, right now let's, enjoy these gorgeous, roads. I'm. Sweaty book it's humid, it's sticky, at times but. There's loads of places just like this where, you can get awesome, food, awesome, drinks, and stay, hydrated so, we're just going to pop in get a feed definitely.

Get A drink, I don't. Smell too good either but hey whatever smelly, bike. Literally. Cooked on the side of the road beautiful. Food and a spicy, start to the day I cannot, get sick of Thai food delicious. Got. Some ice, that's. Like condensed milk super, sweet beautiful, cost. Ice-cold. Yummy. Orange, definitely. Get what I need. While great roads after the refreshments, and fun on the road but, when I saw this fruit stand as we rolled into a village, I just, had to stop. There's. Loads of gorgeous, fresh fruit and the owner was super friendly and of course he, loved, the Multistrada. Now. Let's get back on the road and go and visit some animals, that will just love these bananas. So. We're here at the elephant, century, got. My bananas. Let's give them a feed. And some. Sugarcane Oh. Mr.. Sugarcane. No, more bananas, wow. What, a great experience, but, now it was time to get back on the road to search for more delights. As, I wrote through this dense tree-lined, area, I saw something from the roadside so. Let's go take this trail and see where it leads. So. From the roadside deep in the jungle, we saw as tiny, little spike sticking, out and, we followed this path for a few miles deeper. And deeper into the jungle and look at what we found we're, here, nobody. Else is quite, surreal, Thailand. Is full, of surprises. So, one thing you definitely gonna get in Thailand if monsoon, season, is, we. Get it dearly he talks a lot again. Humility, is gone this. Felt dry again we're, running into some weather right now you definitely, need, this, reaches. Of rain jacket, and rain pants because when it dumps, it dumps, big jacket. On let's go for a ride, also, the roads here, in Thailand, when, it's wet are really, really greasy, so. You could pay attention. Take, care and definitely, stay, off the pier. Bong-soon. Time, it, is bucketing. Down some. Of the worst weather I've ever ridden in so we just pulled off the road taking shelter we're. Hanging out here with some locals, this. Might have been an unscheduled pit stop but, it was also a great opportunity to once again meet some locals, and this, guy was also wearing in England Beckham soccer sure so, what's in yours English I was soon in the gang. Or. The real lasted a good hour but as the monsoon winds passed and it began to lighten up a bit motorbikes. Once again hit the road and we were soon on our way. Now. I would write open into the clouds. For. The first time we've come across a cold, spot, in Thailand, and it's because it's the highest point we're, here in the clouds. Spectacular. The really beautiful. On. The way back down it soon warmed up and began to clear so I according to see another waterfall. What. It. Lila. Further. Down the mountain and I were then right towards a very unique place now. Just one hour away from Chiang Mai they, call this the village, of handicraft. So. We're here in the village of banter why now this place specialize in handcraft goods everything. Unique, is here some really interesting things so let's check out some of these stores and see what we can find. Look, at this cool little thing is like a mini cafe racer, superb. Now, as I knee at the end of my Thailand, adventure, this was for sure a great time to reflect on many brilliant moments, as over. The last week I've made new friends wrote. Through endless natural, beauty and tasted, some magnificent. Foods Thailand. Is a wonderful, country with many hidden gems and, riding. Through it on the Ducati, Multistrada, 950. Have been a true, delight. Thanks. Daria for, a brilliant adventure, I will, be back. You. Just see how much I'm swaying here yeah I'm definitely sweaty.

Incredible incredible video. Amazing camera work, fantastic cinematography, super narration, tremendous story. I enjoyed this video so thoroughly. The amazing and beautiful, beautiful country and people of Thailand, they made the journey so much more worth while. Thank you for this.

Brilliant! We are so pleased you enjoyed the video! Thailand is a wonderful country and getting the chance to ride there was an incredible experience. Thanks for watching :)

Awesome on so many levels. Big respect and much love ❤️

I will be riding the Loop in January or February next year. The monsoon rains aren't my cup of tea. Can't wait to try out a Ducati Multistrada! And, the Thai people, food, and scenery are gobsmacking, indeed!

Great video. there's no doubt that if you're looking for good twisty hill roads then the north of Thailand has an abundance, You mentioned one particularly twisty road but not by name, it's actually route 1095 from Chiang Mai to Pai and claims 762 turns, many of which are switchbacks. You nailed everything about Thailand, it's the reason we'll finally retire there although I expect by then I'll have to forego a decent size scooter for the typical low capacity standard for Thailand :-(. I'll definitely be checking out MotoGeo for our next trip out there. I'm currently a touring HOG rider and tried to rent a large HOG on our last trip to Thailand, but it wasn't easy to find anything, and when I did the prices were crazy. I'm actually considering moving away from the HOG for an Adventure bike and the Multistrada is on the potential list, so if I do go that way then renting in Thailand will also be very cool. Thanks very much for the video, I'm almost jealous.

Missing the motorcycle engine's rumble inbetween or even while you are showing the motorcycle on the run, the video makes it a bit boring. Otherwise the content is really fantastic.

Jamie, your videos always make me smile! Eating bugs; you are the man!

Laughter and the joy of life seem to follow you everywhere. Much respect.

Beautiful

Did you have a factory mechanic and shop truck with you? If not? How did you manage to keep finding people and parts to get those Ducati's running again and why on earth didn't you ride something dependable like a Honda or Yamaha ?

I wish I have a chance to tour Thailand like the way you do. I missed the food, fruits, everything is fresh.

Jamie ! Where ever you Go there is no traffic on the roads. Thanks to introduce Beauty of Thailand with us.

Wowww Bro i am your fan from Thailand.

i really get inspired!! big thanks to jamie!! people in rural areas have so much joyful smile.

Hi Jame!~ Let's come to The west-northern of Vietnam this Autumn, It's very beautiful

สวยมากๆ

Hi Jaimie! A northern lad like you, but somewhat older. I've been living in Chiang Mai for the last 18 months and have become a biker as it's by far the best way to get around. I've been to some of the places shown here, but thanks for the tour it's given me a few more places to add to my list.

Superb video. Now Thailand is on my list. Thanks for taking us around.

Today I purchased a Multistrada 950, and your video has heavily inspired me now. I learned a lot of cinematography and storytelling techniques watching your video. You have done a fantastic job of editing and putting together the entire thing nicely in a storytelling fashion. It's so inspiring, and I can't wait to take my Multistrada from the showroom and attempt to do something like you did. I am in India, by the way.

I'd be really surprised if you didn't have a little tummy upset after eating all that..Great tour!

Well done! Have you thought about riding in Vietnam?

จัดว่าเด็ด

I personally don't prefer group riding but this video is convincing enough to change a solo riders view point

Welcome all bikers to Thailand.

Nice

ชอบรายการท่องเที่ยวนี้มากครับวันหลังมาบ่อยๆนะครับ

สุดยอดมาเลยครับพี่

Dear Jamie, this is probably your BEST video in the whole freaking channel. I'm so glad I've discovered you. You know how? March 1 2014. Your Streetfighter/Tuscany/Emilia trip. With THAT video I've discovered you, and I subscribed right away. But this video, the Thailand one, is probably your best video so far, AND, it reminds me of... you know which one, I'm sure you do. Yes. Mongolia. That video and this one are without a doubt your best videos (also loved Baja in 6 days).

Thank-you my friend for subscribing, supporting and your positive comment! MotoGeo is here to inspire you, we will continue this for 2018 and beyond! :)

Another amazing videos. Come to visit Indonesia too Jamie.

Welcome to Thailand

so many awesome moments, excellent video

Fantastic video. Keep them coming!

wow

what a fantastic tour, great jamie

Inspiring. Can't wait to leave GCC and see my own country on a motorcycle.

nice video man!Can sb tell if Multistrada 950 is being produced in Thailand for Asian market?I have no problem with it but I was very surprised when I informed of that because Ducati not mention that anywhere(even google) and the price is the same with KTM 1090 which is made in Austria and has the same price with Ducati in China as in Europe!

Great vdo I'm your fan

You have to go to Puerto Rico ✌

the father uses a helmet, but the kid don't. Jesus how stupid can one get

สนุกมากๆ ผมอยากให้ Moto Geo ได้มาอีกครับ ยินดีตอนรับเสมอ

Very impressive. Videoing is brilliant!

ถ้าเจอเจ้าถิ่นบิดแซงลงเขา จะฮาเลย555

Nice work Jamie, roads look a bit sketchy though., just found you channel and would like to say, you were the first rider I ever saw with his elbow down on your GP aprillia, I had a poster on my wall, don’t want to make you sound old, but that was a few years back now., keep up the good work.

Ha, yeah a little while ago! It is still the same, fun on 2wheels! thanks for supporting all these years! :)

Videos are getting hard to watch because of all the product placement. I know it's hard to earn money, but really, your audience is here not for that ducati train crap. Do a promo video, it's fine. But, please, stop bragging about the thing each second, it's annoying. There are ways to earn much more, without signing some corporate contracts. Every tried crowdfunding?

Fantastic video motogeo, great job jamie , awesome, please come to malaysia for the next trip

Soon my friend... ;)

Top gun

Another great video as always...

Come to Malaysia Jamie!

Yes yes yes!

Great Video. I ride there last year and it was awesome too.... I see more stuff for my to do list. regards Otti

amazing video! I could feel the fantastic scenery and incredible moment there! 4 thumbs up for you and team

22:54 Is that where the Minions got there first word? BANANAAH

Super enjoyed with your video, it's fantastic

Thank you for doing Thailand proud. Love the Multistrada, but will probably buy and modify a Honda CB500X, although the new RE Interceptor 650 and Triumph twins are also on the list.
