1. Easy, walk in and show passport and choose a bike.
2. They are professional.
3. Had to call because I didn't know that to start the bike, one also needs to hold the brake lever.
4. Please, please be extremely confident of your riding skills, Pattaya traffic requires some confidence.
5. Ended up renting for 2 days to see 2 others on my bucket list and if I might say, this was quite an adventure.
