Winter ride to the beach. December and January are the best riding months in Thailand, as it's not too hot.
I'm feeling "not well traveled" ... I have been in only 5 US states ... all in the southeast. (GA, TN, AL, NC, FL)... you guys make me want to stretch my horizons a bit 😂I spent the last 7 years in the Philippines, same riding season. Now in Miami, same riding season.
Thailand is a great country for riding, if you avoid Bangkok. The driving standatds are 'interesting' - so you can never relax, and as you'll know, heat can be an issue in the summer, but the roads can be good, and the views are great.Ah…Tropical, your pix are making me miss Thailand. Altho I’ve never ridden an mc there
We switched rides a couple of times. The Honda is set up better for off road, and has better low end power. The seat is softer. The Kawasaki is smoother running, handles better on the road, and has more overall power once you get in the revs.Nice shots, looks fun. How do you feel tHe CRF 300 Rally compares to your Versys?
Useful overview ..... thank you!We switched rides a couple of times. The Honda is set up better for off road, and has better low end power. The seat is softer. The Kawasaki is smoother running, handles better on the road, and has more overall power once you get in the revs.
The seat is higher on the honda... but oddly, your knees are tucked up higher too. I liked the seating geometry better on the Kawi ... even though the seat is extra firm.
If the computer is to be believed, the Kawi got 60mpg and the Honda 70.
Even though the Kawi weighs in 70ish pounds heavier... it doesn't feel any heavier.
I like them both... guess I prefer the Kawi for my taste.
That's all I can think of ... let me know if you have any other questions... we plan to ride together often... so I can do another review if necessary 😉
