    No lucky enough the chain just dropped straight of no damage to anywhere on the bike,,,chain had only been fitted 2,000 km previous but it was a cheap crap chain and was giving me constant hassle kinking and stretching,the guy bought me out a heavy duty o ring chain and it’s been all good for last 1000 km.

    I’m on day 18 of my adventure ,2 days ago chain snapped at 150 km/r,,,stuck in the middle of nowhere on the roadside for 3 hours ,,,,a friend managed to contact someone who rode 180 km to bring and fix on new chain for me.......got back on the road and within an hour stopped at police checkpoint and fined 400 bht for excessive speed,,,first time in 10 years I have ever been stopped at a checkpoint,,must have had bad karma that day,,,,anyway that was enough adventure for that day and still managed to make it Chiang Mai to south side of Bangkok in a day........journey continues today Kaeng Krachan to maybe chumphon today.

    Synthetic oil.

    It’s only a little scooter engine not some highly tuned high revving super bike,just stick the Yamaha oil that looks red in colour and comes in clear see through bottle,,that’s what goes in all my scooters.

    Fault car accident....bill way too high?

    If you self insure ,,,bit the bullet and pay the bill....I would be absolutely fuming if you done that much damage to my car,I would also want it repaired at the main dealer. and no it doesn’t really happen to everyone in there lifetime...driving into parked cars....tut tut. maybe you should opt for insurance

    Not sure how long they will last ,,they are pretty soft rubber so not a long lasting tyre,if they was on an in-line 600cc 4 cylinder would be lucky to get around 4,000 miles from the rear,,,the versys hasn’t got loads of power so maybe 6-8000 km..of on a big trip in a few days should total around 5000 km so see how they look after that...the front will last twice as long as the rear anyway. you can ride these tyres pretty hard they have a different 2 differen rubber compound A bit harder on the Center and soft on the sides.

    Honda Warranty

    1500 km is a crazy time frame that would be a service every month for me,,,,,usually once a year enough for me , probably equals to some where between 8-10,000 km

    ^ previous owner had fitted the angels,think he even done a Trackday on them they were really worn on the right hand side,,,,,think he was happy with them,so I only done 850 km on them....... difficult picking tyres for versys nice to have something for a bit of dusty off road riding..this time went for pure road orientated tyre ..next time probably get something with more of a tarmac /off road mix.
