Not my type of bikes personally,i have always ridden sportsbikes.Would love one of these.

I got my Bonnie back on the road last weekend. Looking forward to the UK weather getting better so I can take it up to north Wales for the day.

A couple of  classics I've owned over the years:

Is that shop on Soi Buakhao?

If it is... I used to rent bikes long term from them when I rented a place on Soi 15 back in 2011...

Here's an interesting pic from back then.

A couple of motor cycles seen around Pattaya. BM @galenkia to review

The Honda Africa Twin was owned by the guy who owned the motorbike shop on Soi Baukow opposite the city hospital. He was trying to sell it for 495kb.

It took my interest as I have the same bike. Because I was stranded for 6 months, I used to look at it every time I went by to reminisce.

Hondas always look best in red, white and blue. 

That Repsol paint only suits sports bikes IMO.

Oops, I did it again - saw a deal I couldn't refuse and jumped on it. This is a 2017 Yamaha WR450F with only 228 km on the clock, barely broken in - its original owner left the country and gave the bike to a friend to sell for him but the friend knows almost nothing about bikes and put a really crappy ad on Facebook and the machine sat in his garage for a few months with no takers. Knowing the potential of this model, I had a look at it the weekend before last but of course the battery was almost flat and we couldn't start it - tried again this past weekend with more success and I closed the deal and brought the bike home night before last - spent yesterday doing maintenance and easy performance mods and went out for a short and scary ride on our treacherous local trails just to get the oil warm enough to change - it's been freezing at night the last week or so and the trails are really greasy, was sideways more than once with the power that this thing has. Last night it snowed and with the current forecast I think it might stay, so I timed things just right  - the machine is now put away for the winter but I'm glad I had the chance to try it out once this year before it was too late...
