I booked the Mae Hong Son loop ride from 14/03 to 17/03/22. I was expecting a big group for the ride but pleasantly found out that i was the only person on the tour. My guides Marcus and Tik were the most awesome guides that i have met. As it was only me, both Marcus and Tik were really flexible with what i wanted to see along the way, however i must admit that i had no idea what to expect in terms of the attractions along the way but Marcus and Tik constantly gave me suggestions on what was available. The ride itself was quite enjoyable as Marcus was very knowledgable about the route, and in addition to that, Tik's knowledge about the local dialact and attractions off the beaten path were second to none. As for the bike itself, i rented the Vstrom 650, after a through check at the TBB office, did provide me with a solid and enjoyable ride. Aside from the FI light popping up occasionally on the bike's dashboard, there were no problems at all with the bike. Pre-tour, all my emails regarding the package were promptly replied by Jeff, who was very clear in replying to all my queries.

I would highly recommend those who want to experience an adventure on a motorcycle up the northern hills of Thailand to book with TBB tours, you will not be disappointed! Khob khun jaao! 🙏

Hi Isa, Thanks for the great and accurate review. Marcus and Tik are indeed a couple of superstars and more than made up for my unavailability due to being out on another tour. Due to covid, the bikes have been laid up for a couple of years and the FI light coming on is due to a dodgy sensor. According to knowledge on the web, Vstrom sensors are notoriously sensitive to even the smallest voltage drop and this apparently throws up the "Check Engine" light and F1 on the dash when in reality there is nothing actually wrong which was proven as the bike performed faultlessly throughout your trip. Thanks again for your review and recommendation and I hope you come back and that we can meet and ride together next time. Take care, Jeff.

TBB Tours (or Tony's Big Bikes, former name) runs tours and rents motorcycles. I completed the 4 day MHS loop ride from Chiang Mai through Dae Inthanon, Mae Sariang, Mae Hong Son (my favourite) and Pai, in December 2016.

The business is run by Geoff and Duncan. Dave is a tour guide. On my ride I met Dave and also Geoff. One of the first things you will notice about the outfit is that all the guys are very relaxed and friendly. The main reason I chose TBB was the personal service that seemed to be available from the start, and I was not wrong. I can strongly recommend them as reliable, trustworthy and professional; they will not let you down.

I can't speak highly enough of the tour itself. I have a sinking feeling I will not get to ride like this again in Australia -- not without losing some demerit points. Thailand's roads have to be experienced to be believed! Not for the faint hearted. But your efforts and concentration will be rewarded.

If the riding isn't enough, you will also get to see amazing places, and try some out of the way food and hospitality, in landmarks which they will put together. The local knowledge of your guide will prove very helpful.

For my part, I really appreciated the down to earth and helpful calmness of my tour leader (Dave). He is a very experienced rider but didn't make me feel like a complete novice. I had not ridden a big bike for almost a decade, I was a little rusty at the start, and was grateful for the gentle encouragement and excellent riding modelled by both Dave and Geoff.

If you are worried that the tour might not be fun, or be a little silly, or that the bikes are not good enough, forget those concerns, you are thinking too much.

You will love the ride and you'll like the company.

I hope to come back in 2017!

We rented two CB300F for one day. A quick day trip up Doi Inthanon, both bikes had good tires, brakes and ran well. Our second rental was two CB500Xs these were outstanding bikes almost bought one when I got home. Both of the bikes I rented were perfect. I recommend these guys.

Also if your on the fence about bringing your own helmet or not, I would bring one. They rent helmets, but they are far from new. Having your gear on a multi day motorcycle trip makes sense.

This shop sells laminated version of the "Golden Triangle Rider Maps." Really cool maps and a must have for your trip.

Yes they will keep your passport for the duration of your rental.

One final note if you have no experience on a bike, this is not the environment to start in. There is a lot going on in the traffic, there is a system but it plays by very different rules. We saw a lot on bandaged up tourist throughout our trip.

Safe riding

Me and the girlfriend did the 7 day Golden Triangle tour and could not rate it high enough, it was 2 of us on a VStrom following our guide Jeff, however it felt like he was more a long time friend than our guide. The tour goes along some amazing roads and it was great fun, Jeff stops at some nice places to add in a mix of culture and good food and All of the hotels we were put up in were of a high standard so you were refreshed for the next days riding. Jeff was very flexible with the route and if the weather was changing he knew which roads may not be safe. Very highly recommended.

Did the 7 day golden triangle tour with Jeff as guide and Nat the support driver. Jeff was a really easy going guy with lots of tales to share and Nat was ever dependable support driver and translator. After the first day it was like we were touring with mates and by the end we were partners in crime. The scenery was amazing, the endless curves were fun and challenging. Every day was completely different in terms of places to see, road conditions and different types of thai people. I had a small slide half way in and the guides were very accommodating and changed the itinery to cater for my daily hospital visits and reduced capacity to ride. Thailand was the perfect place for an adventure and a big bike is the best way to experience it all. Travelling with TBB tours gave us opportunities we would never have had if we just hired a bike and followed the GPS route. There were so many characters we met along the way and places that would not show up on a google search. We had planned for a trip of a lifetime and TBB tours delivered beyond our expectations.

Hi Hue, Thanks for the great review and I'm glad you and Yutarvie enjoyed the tour so much. Myself and Nat did too - you were both funny fellas and easy to get along with. I hope your knee has completely healed and that you'll think about coming back with us again sometime in the future. Cheers to you both Jeff.

Thanks to Jeff and Nat for giving us the best bike experience we ever had.

During the 7 days with them we were guided professional and top safe around the Golden triangle , we were taken places that we did not think existed, Jeff and his team have done their research to show us the best of Thailand.

It was a pleasure to meet Nigel and all the rest of Jeff’s mates , on the tour.

Everyday we were met by a fantastic positive attitude an perfect sense of humor , once again thanks to Jeff Nat and Nigel.

We will definitely come back, 👍👍👍

All the best from Jacob, Holger and Svend from Denmark.

Thanks guys. We all had a ripper of a time with you and would love to see you back here. Nigel says that you never gave us a Thai address to send your tour t-shirts to but also reckons you're the best Danish w@*#ers he's ever met! Cheers, Jeff.

We did a custom 5 day tour with Dave so we could do both the Mae Hong Son loop and see the Golden Triangle region. It was an unforgettable experience. Everything was very well coordinated by Dave and Nut, they even took care of the weather for us. The riding was great, Dave rode at just the right pace to keep it exciting but also enjoyable. Also added in alot of site seeing. He also knows where to stop for the best coffee shops in northern Thailand.

Thanks for the great time! Gerrie, Wazza, Shahin and Zain

I did the 7 day golden triangle tour and had a fantastic time, Geoff and Baz looked after us really well. Nothing was a hassle and I highly recommend these guys. great food stops off the beaten path and Geoff even took us to some great little pubs for a drink in the evening. A really good mix of culture scenery temples. I am trying to talk my wife into letting me taking another tour with them.

A trip-of-a-lifetime. We emailed to arrange for a two-day guided tour from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai -- it turned out to be the highlight of our trip in Thailand. Email communication was excellent to coordinate the trip beforehand, and all the rates were reasonable (far cheaper than renting bikes in the US). Jeff, our guide, is a British ex-pat living in Thailand who really set the standard as a friendly, knowledgeable, and safe guide. It was like riding with an old friend. The ride was *beautiful* -- truly a bucket-list trip, thanks mostly to Jeff's knowledge of the small 'secret' roads that twist and wind through the mountains with almost no traffic.

The bike was practically brand new and in great mechanical condition. They provide helmets and riding jackets (you'll probably want to bring heavy pants and shoes/boots). Overall if you are looking for a reputable place to rent bikes and/or book a guided tour you should look no further. If we ever return for another motorcycle trip through Thailand this is absolutely where we'll go.

A few tips we discovered while researching and riding in Thailand:
-Many of the bike rental shops in Chiang Mai (and all over Thailand) charge low rates and then ding you hundreds of dollars for scratches and fees (that you didn't cause); they refuse to return your passport unless you pay up. Tony's Big Bikes is solidly reputable and doesn't engage in this shady practice (that seems to be pretty common throughout Thailand). Do your research.
-Hire a guide! Thai roads are pretty good, but the traffic and rules (or lack thereof) are crazy. There is no way I would have attempted this trip without our guide Jeff. And a guide can show you the best roads to ride! Unless you are a seasoned motorcycle rider from a country with no real traffic laws, having someone to guide you through the chaos is recommended. Don't forget that they drive on the left side of the road here.
-Get trip insurance. If you crash in Thailand medical expenses can be extraordinary. Book trip/health insurance prior to traveling so you will be covered in the (hopefully unlikely event) that something happens. The insurance is usually cheap, and it could save you from going bankrupt if something happens.
