Virgin post. Have enjoyed GT site for some years. You guys are obviously dedicated to its success. Thank you. Wanna buy a 2nd hand tourer of around 400cc. Find myself north of Sukhothai for a week each month. Been shuttling my 135 BKK bike on my pick-up and touring solo a bit from there. Need a proper bike as think I've got my throttle wrist seized in 'flat out' (110kph, downhill and head down like V. Rossi) Experienced with big bikes. Have had a '78 XS1100 since 1981 in Oz, and also have a Trophy 1200 there. Rented several bikes out of CM over the last few years. Thought 400cc seemed adequate with some gear work to have a scratch on the twisties, 120-130 on highways, and passably nimble for a bit of dirt(god forbid) or a creek.. Before you tell me a BMW... I have 70,000. Think that puts me in the market for: *CB400- think leaning this way. Good for a pillion and luggage, but 1-up fun when worked. *Steed or other twin? Had a CX500 as a youngster but no experience of twins since. Are there advantages - less gear changes - lower down power? Am I being academic with 400 size? *Not sure about a 'soft' chopper style. Always thought myself a sports tourer but rarely confident to hang off the saddle in Thailand. Broke my foot on a dead wombat once. Hate to try a water buffalo or even a small elephant. Guess I'll need to rent a Steed or similar to see.Are they comfortable? Pillion? Can you still 'ride' them? *SR400/500? Read an old thread saying most don't have green book? Any comments or suggestions please? Also clubs Sukhothai area? Met 'Wood' at Wood MC in Mae Sot recently who said they have a club. Nice guy. Info on web seems to be all Thai. Problem for me. Thank you. PS - I look forward to a beer at GT's watering hole. PPS - Better to get shot out of a cannon than squeezed out of a tube.
