My name is G I'll be 50 next month, I'm living down here for 15 years now, always love bikes, did a bit of racing in the 80s with yamaha cup and endurance races.
Just put a deposit on a new black xr, can't wait to get it.
Very nice forum
I've got the project to visit Thailand very soon (next holidays on july - august). Could you tell me if there is any interesting bike's shop in Bangkok or another city where I could find some products for the XR ?
Hi there thanks for the welcome
There are plenty of bike shops in Bangkok, there is one official Harley dealer too, but big bikes or big bikes accessories are not cheap because imported here's a link on some bike shop in BKK http://www.geocities.com/bkkriders/shops/index.html
I've ordered my Xr from MCW in Phuket, it is closer to were I live Samui, and Marc one of the owner is very helpfull and know a lot about bikes, there are plenty of (parts) in his shop, also kind of pricy, here's a link on their web site http://www.moto-cycleworld.com/index.html
I make sure to post some pictures about (driving) in this country...
Greetings G man,
Thailand is a beautiful place and very good people.
I really enjoyed Chang mia & Mai Hong Son.
I think it would be quite a challenge to survive in Bankok on 2 wheels. A good place drive a Hummer.
It is something to drive here, the rule is there is no rules. As most expat we could each of us write a book about our experiences on the road, that said once you know and accept the danger it is for sure a pleasure as nobody bodered you if you ride a little fast or if your bike is not standart etc, because of the nice weather I'm very fortunate to be able to ride a motorcycle most everydays. But sure it could be dangerous.
