Buying Phantom difficulties

Discussion in 'Eastern Thailand - General Discussion Forum' started by billzant, Nov 10, 2009.

  1. Dear Forum.

    I am interested in buying a new Phantom, and I live in Trat.

    I spoke to a dealer and he says he can arrange to have the Phantom in the showroom at a price - OK.

    But I want a backbox and a panniers for touring, and they say they can't arrange this.

    They then tell me I must go to Bangkok, buy online, go to Harley etc.

    My view is if a Thai dealer can't arrange it how can I?

    Can anyone help with this?

    Hope you are keeping well,

    All the Best,

  2. Hi billzant,

    Think about getting into Rayong or Pattaya. Every Honda dealer has Phantoms ready to go.
    In Pattaya many of the bike shops have leather panniers you can buy off the shelf and they can fix/put on a back rack. Givi top boxes can be bought at most of these shops.
    Pattaya would be a 'one stop' solution for you and you could have a nice ride back home to Trat.
