As to be expected Pai city & Environs maps have had a massive work over. The Mae Hong Son & Mae Sarieng city maps also have many new places on them.
There are heaps of new dirt trails on the map & many thanks go to GT Riders & others who contributed. In particular thank you • Auke Koopmans the GT Rider (& everyone’s) GPS expert • Dave Dirty • Happy Feet • Big & Tall • Moto-Rex • Silverhawk
FOR DIRT RIDERS New areas you should look at (& explore) are 1. North of R1095 Pai – Wiang Haeng – Mae Lana 2. North of R1095 Huay Nam Dang – Muang Khong / Wiang Haeng 3. South of R1095 the fantastic Doi Mae Ya – Samoeng 4. North of R1263 Mae Na Chon – Wat Chan / Huai Pu Ling 5. East – south-east of Mae Chaem – Chomthong
For inexperienced dirt riders when exploring the 4WD only tracks ride with a mate. Don’t ride alone. The same for the few single track trails. Don’t go alone. Don’t ride them the wet season. Go with a local guide is best!
The topo on this map is a dark colour, black-grey, & may look a little dull indoors, but outside in the sun where you use the map the most the colours & data are outstanding.
Take your time on the MHS Loop, don’t rush. There’s scores of wonderful places to visit & dirt trails to explore.
Happy trails to you all.
Got it @ Mr. Mechanic 🙂 … Kafé does not have it yet! I like the new presentation even so red is a little difficult (for me) to read on green background. Many updates, well worth to get it.
Jurgen Glad you’ve got the map & approve of the updates. The Kafe does have stock on the new map now. Thank you for your support
Headed for the Kafe to pick up the map today. Looking forward to some trail rides in MHS.
