Interesting Scooter Pics from THAILAND!

Postby AussieHelix » Sat Dec 07, 2013 7:47 pm

Hi Guys;

We just returned from a month vacation in North Thailand. we rented a Honda PCX 150 and rode 2200 km around the North reminiscing of our time living and teaching there from 2007-2009.

They have superb scooters in Thailand, where most of the 2 wheelers are now scooters and the population is very imaginative in their use and decoration.

If you have the time and interest I think you will enjoy these photos I put up.

Nice photos. Too bad scooters aren't as appreciated here in the US!

Like most things, scooters could be appreciated more here if it was more of a necessity like there. :shock:

Yes I maintain after visiting 45 countries and motorcycling in 25 of them, that North Thailand is the BEST place in the world to go on a motorcycle vacation.

Great roads, no traffic, great places to stay for $15 a nite, fabulous food cheap everywhere and great scenery.

Cant be beat.

No where else in the world can 2 people and their luggage have such a moto tour on a bike perfectly suited to the conditions that one can rent for $10 a day!

Hope some of you THINK of trying it out.

If people in this country had higher fuel prices to pay I do think scooters would be ridden as they do there. Maybe after we are gone and gas prices go higher they might be forced to buy them. Who knows what will happen. I know it can't keep going like it is or the roads will be like parking lots and no one will be going anywhere fast.
