IMG_1147.jpgHi Brandon here, I'm from the US, Cali.. I've been in Thailand for 11 years now and decided I needed a new hobby so I bought my first big bike and been having lots of fun riding around Chiang Mai. Im married to a Thai and have a daughter we have a house in the wife's village between CM and CR off the 118, but we stay in Chiang Mai

Thanks. I don't have much to compare from as this is my first big bike but I learned real fast. It's a lot of fun fast easy to turn around on small roads and balance is perfect, abs on and off. They try to advertise as an off road bike but it's a bit heavy and shocks bottom out off road but i wasn't taken it easy. IMO great first bike or ladies bike as it's not that big 80% street 20% dirt.

I really like it. At my old age (69) I really didn't want a sport bike as I have a bad back and need to ride more upright. I love a big single and always wanted a BSA Gold Star but could never afford one. I like the Yamaha SRs but the are expensive in Thailand and don't have an electric starter. My top end is about 145kph and I can cruse around at 110 all day long.....fast enough for me and for the price (116,900) it's a good deal.
