motocross bikes in pattaya

Recommended Posts

Can anybody give me any advice on buying a motocross bike in the pattaya area, are there any specialist shops or should i search the classifieds?

 

I will be looking for a honda cr 125 or any similar 2 stroke. I'm not too fussed about the condition as long as it works, how much do you reckon it would cost?

 

Not sure if there are any decent places to ride, i'm moving to sri racha in a few months, i know its no chiang mai but maybe there are a few trails around?

 

cheers

There are several KTM dealers in Pattaya.

 

Most of the big Honda dealers have some Moto models - too many to mention just walk around.

 

The big Kawasaki place on Sukhumvit also stocks Moto models.

Great thanks for your reply, i will be looking for an older model as i can't spend too much and i'll enjoy to work on it

 

Its taken a lot of ass licking (not literally) to my wife to agree to dip into the funds, if i turn up with a brand new ktm 450 she will cut my balls off! :Circle_Sharks: how far do you reckon 60 000 baht will get?

There's a shop on Soi Siam Country Club that sells what looks to me like motocross/trial bike gear, rents out bikes and has several used bikes for sale ranging from about 40-80k baht.

Most of the bikes in thailand in that price range will be crap, you'll need to up it to 100k

and even then you will need to be lucky..........mocy.com is the place to look and get prices.

 

btw thailand is holding a round of the mx gp next year! fck those euro riders are in for a shock!!!

i know they will be a bit crapy at that price but it will spend a lot of the time on the deck as i'm very much a learner off road, i hope to get a better bike when i get better at riding and if things go well for me over there money wise.

 

my uncle bought this from chiang mai for 35k. Honda xr 250

There are tons of trails nr pattaya, I used to live near sriracha too and there are lots of trails near the zoo at khao kheow, the hills there have trails but you need to know where they are, but the pineapple fields behind are endless and lots of fun! But I advise riding out that far to make sure your bike is running well.

Hi, I run a dirt bike adventure tour here in pattaya, I have Kawasaki KLX 250 bikes, I used to race for a few seasons back in the uk in motocross cross country and enduro championships.

I run out of a garage called bike lane, it is the most professional place around here run by Thai enduro champion Kun Ole.

 

He has bikes for sale, there is an old RM 125 that runs well, I'm not sure his price on it?

 

There are no dealers of motocross bikes here, KTM have opened in Bangkok but don't run the off road line.

All other motocross/enduro bikes are either grey import or tax paid.

 

Try to stretch as much as you can because spares are not readily available, so buying an old nail you will end up working on it more than you ride it.

Thanks for your input seven, perhaps i will stop by at your place and take a tour when i'm over there in a few months, whats the tour name? i will try and spend a bit more on something half decent, has to be a 2 stroke though! and i think a 125 will be enough for now. I saw a 2000 cr 125 for 65000 baht on a thai moto website that the guy above mentioned.

 

I rented a crm 250 in koh tao a few years back and had a very scary moment as the back end swung out when i got on the throttle too soon coming out of a bend, in my shorts, t shirt, and flip flops oh and no helmet it could of been a stint in the local hospital. And an empty wallet when i took the bike back!

Hi J77seven,

 

Perhaps you could give us a few more details of your dirt bike adventure tour business. I'm sure there would be a few Addicts interested in a bit of off roading.

Hi, Deffo!

 

Its www.tracksntrailspattaya.com I have been taking a few expat guys out that are starting from absolute off road scratch.

Any one who can ride bikes and has arrived at 30`s-40`s-50`s and never ridden off road has really been missing a special kind of fun!

 

If any one is interested then dont hesitate to give me a ring the number is on the the website. I have new bikes and riding kit, you just turn up in your shorts and T-shirt. If you have completely no idea what you are doing but would like to try then I can get you riding in about 20 minutes and have lots of off road advise and riding tips. I also have a few contacts of other beginners in the area who need people to ride with if you have your own bike.

 

Check out my youtube channel ( Dirtadventurepattaya ) you can see videos on there of rides out with guy`s from complete beginner to full time racers.

 

Here are a couple of links, the first one of some beginner riders and the second of a guy from Italy who races.

 

 

 

Yeah the honda 2 stroke sounds OK you will be able to keep it going, it will be needing a bit of an overhaul probably with bearings and gaskets, but if you give the old 2 strokes a bit of care and love it will be repaid to you in off road fun!

 

Hit me back if you need anything!

 

Good luck and have fun!

Gotta love the sound of a 2 stroke! Where is the track at the end of the 1st clip, would'nt mind practicing on there? I'll pop in when i'm over there maybe do a tour and hopefully i can get hold of a half decent bike fairly sharpish. I'd like to go out riding with other people, i'll be a billy no mates when i arrive and could be risky riding alone.

 

Is it difficult to get parts like someone mentioned above? I would of thought it would be easy

Hi Mickey,

 

The track is at my friends place where I garage out of, it's called bike lane, you travel to the end of soi nurnplubwaan until you arrive at the temple wat sutawat ( it has a football stadium next to it ) you hang a right and head toward and then past the elephant village then do a left shortly after heading for siriporn? orchid farm I think it's called? Follow the road until you see bike lane, which is like a large industrial unit, blue color.

 

That is where the track is, it's good for practice and you just bung Khun Ole a hundred or two for riding as long as you like. He also has a few bikes for sale. He is without doubt a great mechanic to, if you live around here he is an important person to know.

Order parts for dirt bikes through him, he can get spares for hondas yams and so on. So they are available.

 

I know a nice guy from the UK who came on my tour a few times he is just beginning with dirt bikes and is up for riding so you won't have to go out alone.

Your tours look great. Will have to book up a day trip when I'm next over. What range of helmets do you have or is it wise to bring your own?

 

Cheers

Jon

I've been out 4 times now, the first tour was my first time riding off road after 20+ years road riding. The tours are geared towards your ability and are great. I've ended up buying my own KLX after being bitten by the dirt riding bug. I was out last Monday and we covered a fair amount of distance including a stop for lunch I think we ended up out for around 5 hours. Dirt, sand, hills and single track up in the hills North East of Pattaya.

 

I'd highly recommend this for complete novices and experienced riders alike. All the supplied gear is good quality and the bikes are all in very good condition. Johnny is a great guy and has a wealth of knowledge of riding and the local area. One tip I wouldn't do this after a night of heavy drinking, you lose a lot of fluid in the heat especially in the woods.

Wow. I didn't know you existed. I've hired trail bikes all over SE Asia and the last time that I was in Pattaya was thinking that maybe there was a niche market for trail bike riding there too!

If I'm ever back in Patt's a tour with you is definetly on my to do list. On your website, you mention 'smaller bikes for women', what other bikes do you use apart from the KLX's?

If you import a bike that is not supposed to be street legal,

just to run on the track or in the woods.

Will you stil have problems with the customs and with taxes?

this is what i was going to do, i reckon though unless you know someone on the other side then it's too risky, you could end up losing the bike or paying a daft amount of baht to get it through

 

i think its safer/less hassle to buy one when your out there and don't rush just wait until you find a good one

 

its very tempting though, i've seen so many good cr 125/250's go for around the 1500 quid mark on ebay, doubt you would find those kind of deals in thailand and the trust issue with buying off a thai e.g engine blows up on 2nd day what then?

Try Edy's dirt bike shop on Soi Siam. Head over the railway away from Sukkumvitt, about 300 yards or so on the right is a 7/11 and his shop is about 50 yards past that. He has used bikes for sale and advertises on Baht Sold.

i was wonder the same, i guess even if you send it in parts, you'll be paying some level of tax to get it through

You will have to pay import tax on any bike if you declare it. regardless of on road machine or off road.

 

its possible to sneak them in as parts, which you will pay a small amount of tax on as second hand spares. (this will be minimal fee) but thats not really allowed and you are then at risk of having the bike impounded and you won`t get it back, but its unlikely to happen unless you are riding your CR125 down pattaya beach road.

 

Lots of people bring them in as parts, and if you are riding these parts off road only then generally nobody would ever know.

 

Yes the police can catch you so you need to know the trails and how they link up with pattaya or you need a truck/van to take the bike back and forth.

 

 

 

 

The Tour is here and taking booking for anyone interested in riding. go to the website-----
