Hi everyone, I had a m-bike accident in Victoria, Australia in 1991. 21 years ago.
Ive build the ass ends and fabrication, welding and motor trimming of many vehicles including 2 HARLEY TRIKES...Sold now 10 years ago.
Lim looking a Building a Trike in 4-6 months and basing in Thailand. Ive back packed mostly on my own for the last 3 years. Mainly philippines, but also Thailand 4 times, Vietnam 2 times and 1 time Cambodia.

Im looking at building a motorcross/ ENDURO type TRIKE.

IS THE HONDA CRF250L a good bike? Easy to register? Well made?
Or is there a better bike new like this that may be another option?

I want to travel dirt roads offroad, but nothing crazy offroad. I want it to be strong enough to sit on 90-100 kms with say 30 kg of luggage in an Aluminium TRAILOR and 10kg sporty w-chair strapped to the trike...

ANY INPUT SO MUCH APPRECIATED... I'm just learning how to use a forum. :). Thx

Gday & welcome.
It sounds like you must know what your doing building bikes / trikes then; & it would be great so see a few pix of them.

Re learning the forum, take it easy....there's a starters thread here for you
https://www.gt-rider.com/thailand-motorcycle-forum/showthread.php/25861-WELCOME-Important-Read-this-first!
with links to info answering many of the questions you've asked.

As a para you must have had some interesting experiences backpacking alone in Philippines, Thailand & Cambodia the last few years.

The best guy for building trikes here would be Joe at Joe's Bike Team, [email protected] to get the right info direct from the horses mouth.
