    AP Honda Thailand have Just built a Massive Training Centre. It is Located on the 118 Road heading towards Doi Saket it is on the Right hand side of the Road a few Kilometers past AJ'S Harley Davidson shop. With Spectacular Premises and also Tracks, a Tarseal circuit which has different Areas to teach Road Skills, traffic Rules and Bike Control. This actually looks more Geared towards Newer Riders and Riders moving up to their First Big Bike not so much a Race Track! Inside this Area is a Dirt Area with Jumps and Mounds etc for the Dirt Riders. They have a Fleet of Bikes for all these different areas including CB500X, CBR500R, CB650F and for the Dirt CRF250L and also the Full On CRF250R . I was all Excited as I was taking a look around until they told Me that the Entire Beautiful Complex is for Training only No Sales!!! So We are still stuck with having to go into Big Wing Honda in there Shitty Location in the Middle of Town if We want to Buy or get any Service! Oh well so be it! Great to see this in Chiang Mai though! Grand Opening will be in June and the Manager Khun Somboon Will let Me know when!

    They will also have a Large Merchandising Area at the Front so You can Buy Your Honda Kit there just not the Bike Ha Ha! But Fingers crossed they change there Mind and Actually Sell Bikes Later it would be a Great Location!

    Actually I just thought I should of Posted this Thread in the Honda Big Wing Forum but never Mind. General Discussion it is I guess? A Significant Investment by Honda so I hope they make Full use of it and as I said before I personally think the Location would be a lot better than in the Middle of Town for a Sales outlet! If any of You have been to the Beautiful Honda Big Wing Dealership in Udonthani it is similar to that with the Added addition of the Track Areas. I forgot to mention it will also have a Big Cafe / Coffee Shop in the Building!

    any idea what / how it tests you?
     
  6. When they were first working on it the manager at Big Wing in the city told me they will eventually have the Africa Twin there too to test. That will be great if that ever happens. :)
