dont buy USED the pitfalls that come with used are serious,try and buy new.

 

who was that guy on here who wrote up about used moto's ?, the Thai idea of a recon engine is a new coat of black paint.

 

im sure you cant insure anybikes over a certain age,maybe a year for theft.

A brand new Honda Wave 110i will only cost you 38,000baht so it's better to buy new than used as someone already mentioned some don't take care of their bikes, change oil or service.

Good luck

I spent a lot of time looking into this and the decision became very clear that you are by far best to buy new.

 

Some of th eprices they want for secondhand bikes are not far off the new price.

 

I stopped to look at a fino the other day and they wanted 37,000 baht for it to which I said is there any discount as a new one is only 44,000. The lady just turned her nose up at me.

“So I see this Thai girl in a bar. I ask her, would you sleep with me for 1 million baht? She says, YES! Then, I ask her, would you sleep with me for 20 baht? She screams, NO WAY! WHAT KIND OF PERSON DO YOU THINK I AM? So, I tell her, we’ve already established what kind of person you are. Now, we are just negotiating the price.â€

I think you will probably find that prices come down outside of Pattaya... maybe somewhere like Satahip?

I think a used scooter is fine. Dont let people tell you how bad the service is here as it is very good. I purchased a 2005 nuovo for 14000 baht and have only done general maintenance in 6 months...

You are far better off buying new if you can afford it, the Honda Wave 110i starts at around B34,000. Used Scooters are around B20,000 for a 3 year old bike. Stick with the four major Japanese brands, avoid the cheaper Chinese bikes.

There are so many shops but you don't know who is good or who is bad. This guy helped me just recently get a good quality one. I was going to rent but he advised me of a shop he uses. He's a poster here and I renting from him before and such he's an honest straight forward guy. I'd try to get advice from him (and if I were you I'd listen to his advice).

After just buying a new Kawasaki KSR for 68,000 on road still on red plate and spent another 9000Baht on mods i have now decided this bike isn't for me so it is for sale with less than 500km on the clock!

 

Any offers?

 

guess i will take some pics soon and post here

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
