The website also has a few sponsors, for example Sunrise Property Thailand who foot the bill, and Joe's Biker Rings and Pins (Eastern Ages) and Canopy Adventures, both of whom provide you with some form of discount on their products/service, so click on their sponsor logo to find out more.
We also have members such as Thaitrack (Graham) who organizes the Highside Tours track days at the Bira Circuit for those who want to learn from an expert how to control a bike or just have fun blasting around the racing circuit.
Thanks for joining - I hope you will find it useful and interesting to be a TMT member!
