  1. Advice appreciated! Re travel insurance for a 70 year old visiting U.K. AXA and Bupa seem to have an age cut off at about 69! Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect

  4. Thoroughly recommend using A380 aircraft. 777 noisy and cramped. Be aware some UK car rental companies require Thai international driving license. Booked 1 series BMW 16 days, July 345 pds, they allow 70 year old driver. Note much cheaper if you are ok with a manual car! Sheridan LHR good rates and that's where you pick up the car. Many do not hire to over 65's. Malaysian offer great fares ex BKK ,then do the airport night stop. No need to go through immigration etc. About a 9 am dep the next day. Can be a minefield at this age, good that you are getting great advice. Pm me for more info. Cheers Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect q

  8. The 'sting in the tail' re this 10 year proposal, is the 10,000 USD health insurance requirement! Once retirees pass through 65 years of age ,this rockets in cost! The 3,000,000 baht in the bank, would pale to insignificance ,compared with this cost. In fact many folk would find this unobtainable . Please correct me if I am wrong , but laying out 1,000,000 baht for a 20 year Elite Visa would have to be the only affordable option for elderly retirees.
  9. Can anyone advise how much a visitor would be required to show in her bank account for a ten day visit? Cheers.
  10. Fun for sure, having owned a K5 with the same engine Fantastic bike!!!!
  11. I think we compare similar priced motorcycles, that are available in LOS!!!
  12. Apologies, but just to clarify. Ducati Scrambler, and air cooled Monsters valves at 10000 km. Plus belt changes. 820 Monster about 170k above MT 07 price. Interesting that Moto USA rated the MT 07, above 820 Monster! Just great the MT 07 and Honda 650 F are available for hire! Just ride and compare. Everything is subjective!
  13. Test rode Honda 650f, a heavy barge, sure great engine.Quality yes. Honda CB 500 way less power and heavy again. Nothing like the light weight fun experience of the MT 07. Ducati, been there done that, harsh forks, not a comfortable riding position.High maintenance costs, belts valves etc. Kawasaki 800 heavy, 80 k more. Just saying. Read the reviews of the MT 07!
  14. Big , friendly Yamaha dealer CNX , can't speak for the rest of LOS. My only gripe with the MT 07 would be , not the best of color schemes. Otherwise, yes Yamaha have a winner, for sure! Front fork softness , not a major drama to sort, if you ride that fast!
  15. Make no mistake, the Yamaha MT07 is a truly awesome bike. Hired a new one in CNX , rode down 118, through the mountains. Great power and torque. Smooth engine , great gearbox and brakes. Very comfortable. Useful gear position indicator. Confidence inspiring handling. Sad to take it back What other bike in LOS can compare with this? Just saying.
