Fastoman Sawadeekrap, Jim and congrats on the new bike. Try to get some riding in on the new bike before the rainy season starts.

Yes, I love this part of the world. I was out that way over the Christmas break - and called in at that very cafe. The views are pretty spectacular from there. I am doing lots or riding right now. The Samoeng loop before breakfast on Saturday, and this coming weekend off to Mae Sariang via the long through the hills route! Love it.... :-)

JimShortz Yes, a lot to like out here - I'm in my 15th year here now! I will get posting pics sometime soon... :-)

JimShortz Thanks Fastoman, what a lovely offer. I will surely bear it in mind. That goes both ways, if you are ever coming this way :-)

Jake Wheelie I think my Versys 300 X is made in Thailand. There are lots of bikes out there and beautiful women but I've never gone there. A buddy of mine is half Thai though and I've heard the language a lot. Sounds cool I wish I could speak it lol. Wow a 650. I'm jealous. Welcome to the forum and enjoy your Versys. Post some pics.

Hi from Chiang Mai Thailand

Hi all,


Picking up my 2011 Versys 650 today (with only 27000km on the clock). My last "big" bike was a CBR600F in the UK back in 2012. I'm moving up from my current Z300, and before that a little CB300F. Both have been fun, but I am looking forward to the Versys a lot!
