Hi everyone, I am ready to purchase my first bike ever and it happened to be in Thailand. Everyone has been telling me it is not a good idea to start riding in Thailand but I have been postponing to buy a bike for some time now and I feel like the time has come. Maybe it will be harder to learn in Bangkok traffic but I have to start somewhere... Although I reside in Bangkok I found this great deal in Pattaya and I will make the trip to do the paperwork and pick up my first bike this Friday. There are some spare parts come with the bike (original exhaust, etc) and then there is the ride from Pattaya to Bangkok, which I am not keen on taking as my first task due to my lack of experience on a -bigger- bike. Could you please give me some advice on what my options would be? Is it possible to rent a pick up truck to transport my D'tracker and the spare parts from Pattaya to Bangkok? Also, any advice for a new rider would be very helpful. I have been looking for a riding school in Bangkok but it seems like there is only AP Honda's course and that is in Thai. If any of the experienced riders out there would like to give some tips on riding safely in Thailand, I will appreciate it. If anyone in Bangkok has some time to ride together, that would also be great. Cheers!
