Where do you ride, in Bangkok or outside? I'll be heading to Thailand toward the end of November and plan to spend most of my time up north, but am curious about places to ride near Bangkok.

I've been to Bangkok, and I can't imagine riding a bike there. Do they still unleash all the trucks at 9pm? (Earlier in the day, they're illegal on the street.) Craziest traffic I've ever seen.

I'm not sure about the trucks, there seems to be a lot during the day so...

Most of the time i see large group (10+) of riders hitting the main roads of the city after 10pm, usually good to great bikes, mostly fixed.
