Almost every day I sit beside this 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 couple of days ago this MZ (which I had never heard of) arrived.
The young Thai owner told me that it was "after the war" but didn't know if it was WW1 or WW2.
The fuel cap, which he says is original, gives a clue.

Nice one. I've got an MZ250 back in Oz - but it's a bitza - bits of this, bits of that... Ducati 21" front wheel, Postie bike rack, Suzuki alloy tank, Harley aftermarket seat and so on.

Keep sharing the interesting ones mate

The MZ 250 was an East German motorbike and was reasonably popular in the UK, they were better made than other makes like CZ which were Czech built.

A Thai rider on this Binelli TRK 501 arrived for a snack during a tour of the north.
He said the bike is 'very good'.

I'm seeing quite a lot of these little battery powered scoots whispering around the area.
One lady told me she can ride hers from Doi Saket to Chiang Mai and return without having to recharge.
That's at least 40kms; and that's almost unbelievable. But that's what she told me.

A few local outlets here too.
