  1. Well, I finally made to Thailand to live. I live North of Bangkok, but will make a trip to CM soon. I just received my bike from Peter at Siam Superbikes. It's a Yamaha TDM 850. Peter was a big help and delievered as promised. I recommend his shop to anyone in the Bangkok area. Once I get use to driving on the "wrong side" of the road I hope to make a few trip reports and meet many of you.

  2. Welcome Dannie and let us know when you are in the north. I think you picked a great bike 95% of the riding in Thailand and Laos. There numbers are growing. I just put my TDM through a grueling 8,000km in Laos doing things they were not meant to do and it pulled me through without hesitation.

  4. If you - or anybody else - plan a trip to the south, let me know, I live 400km south of Bangkok in a small village. It's a good stopover on the way south (if you don't prefer 1000km daytrips) and I can arrange accommodations for a night. - Had 30 (used) bikes in the last seven years before I came to Thailand, sort of a hobby, but ride a Phantom 200 now. Well, things change! - Enjoy your TDM, one of my favorite bikes, right after Suzuki's SV 650.
  5. Hi Klaus, what about on the way North?
    I am planning a trip from Singapore going to Loas in January 2005.
    If you are staying in south of Bangkok, most properly I will pass-by your area, since I have to make a right turn to the east after Bangkok.
