1. Welcome to Thailand Vapers, an English language forum for members in Thailand and the rest of Asia to talk about vaping.
    Commonly referred to as e-cigarettes, vaping is really about the use of personal vaporizers (mods) and atomizers (tanks, clearos, RBAs, RDAs, RTAs) filled with e-liquid.
    Are you looking to get started or an old hand at vaping? Everyone is welcome here so sign up today and talk vaping with us!

Another thing to keep me busy

    You can actually order it for 519,000 Baht. It looks impractical to me unless you're going to do mainly dirt track riding.

    Yes and there are cheaper options and certainly lighter readily available as well. It sure looks fun tho.

    oh, looked at the CBR when it came out but restricted to 47bhp I think, think the ER6n at 72bhp is still top of my wish list only I would love something a bit lighter with more power. There no reason why the CBR500 and the CB500x couldnt give 60-70bhp, I dont know why honda like to restrict them so much.

    Sure it is not as powerful a an ER6 but way more comfortable. I did a 900km trip already and it was a breeze, very smooth up to 150kph on the highway with 2 farangs on its back.

    For the money I think it is truly one of the best buy in it's category if not the best as an everyday bike.

    Small update, did a 6xxkm trip from Chiang Mai to Nan and back.

    The road from CM to Nan by Phayao is just one of the most beautiful roads I did in Thailand, totally worth it!

    Low traffic is worth mentionning also.

    On the topic of the bike it is still going strong after 25 000km with very minor repairs, disapointed by Honda dealership tho and I will get my bike fixed by another mechanic in CM (Piston Shop).

    Still very happy with it and I start to see more and more second hand ones available as cheap as 120k thb, definitly no reason not to get one if you plan to ride in LOS.
