Every day, we will offer advice on the best things to see and do, but you're under no pressure to follow the (small) crowd. You can strike out on your own at any time and simply meet back up with us when you're ready. We obviously have preferred routes – but anyway you choose to arrive at the booked hotel is up to you.
However. As mentioned in Terms & Conditions the CDW only covers you for group riding and putting the bike through normal, lawful conditions - within manufacturer's recommended guidelines. So if you're out on your own, you're on your own. Sorry!
Well... It'd be a first, lol!
Actually, it's happened once before, on our longest tour, a fortnight into the three-week Around Thailand Loop. Which is why that one is, and always will be either; Previous guests / by invitation only (we'll have sized everyone up already), or a single group, a crowd of you who are used to spending long periods of time together & able to get over any minor spats.
In other words, if you're a sole rider, or a couple who haven't been with us before? Not a hope I'm afraid. We don't know you, can't be sure you'll mesh with the group dynamic and I refuse to spoil a dozen people or so's damned expensive month, not really fair of us to gamble so heavily with their dreams, really?
Talk half a dozen of your mates into it & don't worry, Organiser's always receive the lion's share of the discount, because we all know how much hard work it truly is pulling an event like this together! We're more than happy to assist of course, I find group email / chat a wonderful way to keep the excitement bubbling, more ways to assist than you'd believe!
Not for me, well it is I suppose, happy wife happy life, lol!
The missus, my better half, Bpuk. And the rest of the Thai Staff. She nearly kills herself on a weekly basis, running around after people, waiting on them hand, foot and finger? Absolutely runs herself ragged, and I'm under no illusions she's the one reason our little business has become such a resounding success. She's not in it for the money, extra tips or anything, but you'll be treated like lords & ladies, at the very least. The favour? P's & Q's, that's all, basic manners, nothing special, for God's sakes don't kiss her arse, she'll be bloody impossible to live with! Rofl ! I only ask because in the past, very occasionally, one or two guests have managed to get a little, carried away with their newfound, elevated status? Fine at first but after a few days requests begun to slip towards demands, expected, slightly irritated if acted on much later than immediately... And so incongruous, because NONE of us would ever dream of acting in such a boorish manner! Ever!! We're only human though, and forget ourselves pretty easily, especially when having a rollicking great time, the alcohol knows no end, tomorrow's hangover is a million miles away... 'nuff said eh? Ta much!
