Renting a Honda Motorbike in Mae Sai
Renting your own Honda 125 cc motorbike can easily be done at the one & only Honda dealership in Mae Sai which is located less than a mile from the Myanmar/Thailand border crossing on the main road in Mae Sai. All that is required of you is that you leave your passport, fill out some short paper work, and pay the rental fee which is about $3 usd per 24 hour period. It seems to be a bit harder to rent the bike if you're a Thai citizen so its best to use a foreign passport when renting from them. They will provide you with a map of Mae Sai and a helmet.
