The Honda Big Wing construction in Chiang Rai has been getting favourable reports for a long time now & with the premises finally open it was time for a quick inspection.

The premises are large and impressive, bigger than Chiang Mai?

Check it out sometime for some nice air conditioned comfort.

Apologies for the lack of workshop / service centre photos...next trip.

Captain Wally and myself had a look around the new showroom in Chiang Rai last month, very impressive and had plenty of stock, including a few of the new 2019 CB500X with the 19" front wheel, even had a new Goldwing on the floor. Only minor issue we had was that none of the sales staff had good English, maybe we went on a day where there was minimal staff ?


Beware of the bollards when parking out the front of the premises, looked dangerous to us.

When I called in around the time they opened in January - the manager had some English, I wouldn't say he was fluent but not bad!

Honda Cub............. Gosh. Beauty in the eye of the beholder....?
Looks a total mismatch of ideas to me. Leg shields with alloy wheels.. really..?
Guess I'm old fashioned....

Our Mate Patrick was there last week! His ABS light was on all the time on His Africa Twin so called into get it checked. He said no one knew anything and they don't even have a Diagnostic machine yet so couldn't do anything! So told to go to Chiangmai! He had no better luck there either by the way but that is another story Ha Ha! Needless to say He was disappointing!

That's pathetic - if two main dealers cannot sort out the problem! Slight excuse for ChiangRai - only been opened two or so months but no excuse at all for ChiangMai.

I bought my new bike from Honda Big Wing Chiang Rai just over a month ago and again none of the sales staff have much English, there is a lovely young girl who works in the coffee shop next-door (Honda Cub) and they ended up getting her over to help translate. I had the bikes 1st service a couple of days ago and again they had to get the coffee shop girl to help, she is fantastic and should be on there sales team :)

Speaking with another falang on wed and he said exactly the same, just get the coffee shop girl over to help you ;)
