Hello all, Any of you wanna/can help a fellow biker out? I'm badly in need of help/advice as I'm in the (painfull) process of buying a motorcycle in Thailand. I'll try to be to the point: I am in Bangkok buying a motorcycle to ride around Thailand, Laos and Cambodia. Back in Bangkok at the end of februari I want to sell it again. I have been around some shops in Bangkok and decided to buy a 12 year old Honda Bros 650 cc for 50.000 Bhat (after a testdrive that went okay). After I bought it some technical problems have surfaced. I am not happy with that and the people from the (Thai) shop agree that I should swap it for another bike. They suggest that I take a registered Honda Phantom 150 cc that's three years old and has done 31.000 kilometers. It seems to me that 50.000 Bhat is a steep price, so I would really like some good advice on this. Should I take the offer or bargain for a better one??? I had the Honda Bros registered in my name, so I could take it to Laos and Cambodia. Now the people from the motorcycle shop want me to take the Honda Phantom without registering it in my name. They'll give me some papers that will get me across the border. I have two questions on this: 1. Will I have problems at the border if I show registration papers that don't have my name on them? 2. Is it a problem that the bike is not registered in my name when I want to sell it in Bangkok? I'm afraid I will have no other option than to sell it back to the same shop, which will decrease my bargaining position a lot. I'll have to make a decision soon. I hope someone is able to give me some good advice. It will be hugely appreciated. Maarten BTW: I'm hoping to meet some riders when I get to Chiang Mai and have a few beers together. Anybody thirsty up there?
