I agree man, I agree.KZ wrote: And on it goes!! Super deals!! A brand new 250cc Suzuki scooter - only ten thousand bucks!! A five year old Gold Wing, a steal at 30 grand!! Or the three year old KZ 10 R, maybe crashed, but fixed up very nicely - now only 15 thousand dollars!!
Paperwork - no paperwork? Who cares at these prices!!
Excuse me, folks, when I get a bit ironic here, but BIG bike prices in TH are a red flag for me. Don't want to make Red Baron look bad, I've only had good experiences with them, good luck to them. But at these prices I'll ride my little bike that costs as much new as the registration of one of these BIG bikes.

If you can afford it, go for it, that's fine with me. "Nothing is expensive - you just don't have enough money", as a friend of mine once said in my general direction.
Lots of posters say: This is the way it is, love it or leave it - fine with me, I do the latter - but: Why is it that way? Why can you get a decent 250 in Cambodia and get it registered for a few bucks by an employee of the hotel where you're staying while you're having a beer in your favorite bar? Would anything change if nobody would pay these outrageous prices for used bikes?
On the other hand: How many more happy bikers would there be in TH if bikes could be had for realistic prices?
Lots of "ifs" and "buts" - I know - but I'm looking forward to your responses, even though most of you don't agree with me.
