RECENT VISITORS TO A COFFEE TRUCK

Saturday 26th Nov 2022

This young Dad arrived with his two sons.
I think the Yamaha M Slaz is now discontinued.

A senior Thai gentleman arrived on his new electric bike and was pleased to show me around it.
He said the manufacturer claims a 70km range but he will not travel more than 50kms between domestic recharging.
I am seeing many new electric bikes humming around this area.
I believe this sells for around 42,000 baht.

Wed 7th December 2022

I thought I had spotted a new model bike at the Coffee Truck today.
However, closer inspection revealed that the 'P' from PCX had fallen off.
The other side said the bike was an 'X150'!

And a nice little Kawasaki D-Tracker called in also.

This Honda arrived today, wearing a Sukhothai plate.
We didn't recognize it at first so had a closer look.

It turned out to be a VT250C.
Going from the size of the barrels I had thought it was a 750!

You certainly see a variety of motorised two-wheelers.
I always enjoy seeing your posts - Thank you..!!
Wishing you a Happy (Occidental) New Year.
Cheers
 
Yes, a nice variety of bikes.
I think we haven't seen "occidental" on Rde Asia until now!
Best wishes.

There haven't been any interesting bikes for a couple of weeks but today a young chap
arrived on this Yamaha R15, which he loves and uses frequently to ride to Mae Hong Son
and back; which would be quite a buzz!

The star today was this Honda CB650F; it sounded wonderful.
Note the car horn (good investment)!

Wow one of the old 2 stroke Honda Phantoms, thats got to be at least 20 years old

Here's a rare one.
A Thai friend arrived on this delightful little Honda Giorno yesterday.
50cc two stroke.
Japanese import, bought in Bgk.
It sounded lovely as he zoomed off.

A Thai rider rode up from Bangkok of this (to me) superb KTM 390 Adventure.
But I cant afford the 260,000 baht!

thumbnail_IMG_20230303_111846.jpg


Little K9 here is a daily visitor. She never eats; just happy to be with humans and watching the passing parade.

thumbnail_IMG_20230303_111831.jpg


Yes, appalling smoke pollution (aka 'dust') today. :sneaky:

thumbnail_IMG_20230303_111815.jpg
 
And here's that earlier GPX Razer all cleaned up.
Oh, and our magnificent new fence.

thumbnail_IMG_20230303_132558.jpg
 
The KTM looks to have a number of modifications. The seat looks to be one of those but I am not so familiar with the 390 Adventure. Say hello to your K9 friend for me. I always enjoy your posts - thank you. Cheers
 
Interesting observation Ah Boon.
OK, a pat on the head for K9 from you. Thanks for your encouragement.

This new Vespa 150 arrived with its proud owner.

thumbnail_IMG_20230301_123856.jpg
 
I'm no authority but I believe the new ones are 4 stroke, single cylinder, three valves.
Anyone?

This senior gentleman arrived on his colour-matching Royal Enfield Meteor 350 today.
The bike is one year old and only covered 2,300 kms.
He did all of the bar work himself, being a retired engineer.

Saturday 10th Sept 9pm.

Almost every day I sit beside an excellent Coffee Truck in Doi Saket (retirement is like that!),
observing the passing parade whilst sipping on an iced Americano.
Its a good chance to meet interesting locals and, sometimes, chat about the bikes they arrive on.
I will add pics here as I get them.
Sometimes I am unable to get adequate details about the bikes so I am hoping subscribers to RA will be able to
add accurate information and/or interesting anecdotes.
Anyway, here goes.



A Thai rider on this little Honda Super Cub 110cc arrived today after riding up from Bangkok.
He tours on it regularly and stores his camping gear (including tent) in the panniers.
The one improvement he has made is to fit YSS shocks.
He love the little thing, which has done 22,000 kms.

No doubt there will be more bikes tomorrow.

A man after my own heart. Small bikes are the best touring bikes IMHO. If I see something along the way on my 500X, I am a lot less likely to stop and look than I am on my Wave.

I have a Honda Wave 125i that I am setting up for touring. Just waiting on the YSS shocks to be installed and then I'll add the panniers. Three major trips planned for the year - to Laos, Cambodia, and finally to Singapore the last part of the year. I'll keep an eye out for him on the road.

Thank you Two Wheels. I got off my fat, tired backside and looked up one of the many Vespa models (a 150cc) and you are correct. Single cylinder, 4 stroke. Hopefully, next time I won't be so lazy.

Hi BigEnso.

I agree with you and I have recently moved to a Honda Cub!

We hope to read reports of your riding adventures in Laos, Cambodia and Singapore.

Looking forward to seeing your bike when it is set up.

Best wishes.

This is my last Wave set up for touring. I just replaced it with a 2023 red Wave 125i and it will be fitted out the same way.

And a CRF 250 (but what model is it?)

NB
Notice how the current smoke pollution is affecting images.
And note our very expensive (530,000 baht!) fence.

The special guest of honour yesterday was this KTM LC4 690.
