    With our show going correspondent [TJ] first breaking the news last year that Yamaha & Kawasaki were going to start selling new big bikes here in LoS, the 2008 offerings are of interest.
    Mike Rust's form from Kawasaki suggests that we may see the new '08 KLR on sale sometime in the new year.
    No news about Honda or Suzuki deciding to compete, as of yet.

    Today this information was posted on the Yam euro website about the 2008 XT660Z Tenere.

    Hi Rhodie,
    Now we are Talking some Real Bikes!!! I am Just hoping that If Yamaha do sell Big Bikes in Thailand we can Place an Order for what we want ,ie: XT660 ??? I would rather Pay 500.000 baht for that than 600.000 for the BMW 650. Even the KLR i could consider? If they are the same price something is up as in every other Country BMW are much more Expensive than Jap Bikes.
    Keep up the Good Work Mate and look forward to the Time when all this is not just a Rumour!!!
    Cheers Ian.
