Re: New bike models in Chiang Mai

Engine looked great as you would expect on a big new bike, comes with engine guards







Seat looked cheap








As an around-the-world, tarmac gear hauler, might be ideal.

Re: New bike models in Chiang Mai

The bike that really caught my eye this year was the Yamaha XT660Z Tenere

We must have seen about 6 of these new bikes coming through Chiang Mai on a round-the-world ride & every single one of them had said they had no problems with the bike at all. Most if not all of them had ridden all the way fro Europe.

Real shame this bike isn't available here, I would buy one
