I saw a V for rent at Mr Beers in Chiang Mai last week. I didn't get a chance to take it out Best to book in advance!
I'm sure I will go to Chaing Mia during my "Winter Project". I will try to check out Mr Beers.
I'll also be heading your way soon on bike swap to AU. So I suppose I will fly into Sydney. Probably come in late 2013 or 2014? My swapmate is coming here to use my ST in May. Sure beats rentals IMO !
