    Bike buying question

    I'm looking for a mountain bike or hybrid with 27.5" or 650b wheels I've tried a few shops, found a bike I liked but it's only available in S and M frame sizes I'm 183cm so the correct size is likely L but the guy called his supplier and they only have them in Medium, Is there any place that sells bikes in larger frame sizes? In bkk btw
  2. Where is the best place to pick up these things normally in bkk, Thailand? Probably they're around if you have fluent Thai enough to describe what you're looking for but I'd rather a big shop you can walk around and find if possible (local homepro was pretty crap tbh)
  3. I'm thinking about one of these or a Yamaha mt-10 Never owned a BMW in thailand before but I like the s1000r Hows the service intervals, quality of work and price if you've already got one compared to other brands? ... Are BMW dealerships as well trained if they have to diagnose and fix a problem? Do spare parts take several months to arrive? I'm in bkk so probably not too far from a dealer most of the time

    Yamaha Aerox 155cc Launch

    People are averaging At least 150km range on the Aerox forums before the gas warning starts flashing but if you to be cautious better get the pcx with the 8 litre tank Doesn't really bother me, I'd never be 150km from a gas station on my scooter.... On my big bikes, sometimes

    International Drivers Permit

    I don't need to trust you. I don't need to go check I just went through the bullshit necessary to get Thai licences.....

    International Drivers Permit

    You're looking for the answer you want at this stage rather than the truth/reality .... Ask those police who told you to put it in writing and sign it with his name and badge number
  11. They are worried that they might not be the crow, but the pigeon....
  12. He put a lot of faith in conventional fortune too which has served him quite well Billions and Billions I read somewhere

    Coins.co.th?

    It only gets worse when you start trading in tens of millions.... There is exchange opened recently I expect a lot of users will move over Can't remember the name of it but by 2020 there will probably be at least a dozen exchanges to choose from so bx can enjoy their monopoly while it lasts

    Coins.co.th?

    Bx is good but the fees are a bit greedy sometimes for cash withdrawal but they have a practical monopoly at the moment which will evaporate when the market has now competitors (if you sell a bitcoin they take fees for the sale like any exchange would , but when you want to withdraw the cash, they ALSO charge 10thb per 10,000thb) and we are talking about a free kasikorn to kasikorn transfer before someone suggests it's the banks fault (it isn't) This is not the case with other cryptocurrency exchanges and it may not bother people who trade small amounts but it gets excessive when you want to trade larger amounts or only profiting from the daily swings etc

    Start with crypto now - Should or not?

    You could also count From 2009-2013 onwards so the number of positive days to buy it would actually be even higher than 95% and I predict in the next economic crisis (coming soon apparently) more people will run into cryptos and maybe gold as a "safe haven" when the sky comes crashing down on stocks etc It matters less what the outgoing generation don't like than what the upcoming generation DO like and 2/3 of millennials surveyed would rather invest in cryptocurrency than stocks and they distrust banks and financial institutions (deservedly so) after witnessing 2008

    Driving License not on Computer.

    In my opinion, all Thai driving licences should be reclassed as "fake"
  17. I don't know if they will let you renew your licence until its within 90 days of expiry date That's what they told me anyway in bkk

    Start with crypto now - Should or not?

    If you stayed clear of bubbles, you would have to avoid investing in stocks, bonds, gold and the currently overpriced property market...... Not. Only. Cryptocurrencys.... There are no certaintys and no investment instruments worth doing with 0.0% risk, in my view the risk/ reward ratio in crypto is higher than anything else and therfore worth the risk but as always, stay well diversified in a broad group of asset classes

    In Thailand, they do things the Thai way Whether that makes no sense to your home nations policy is irrelevant while you are in Thailand

    Try explaining the Geneva convention to an angry Thai cop if you get in some accident or type of trouble..... Good luck

    Yamaha Aerox 155cc Launch

    You're right in that regard There is 25 Litres of underseat storage and I would be much happier with a 10 Litre tank or even larger and sacrifice some of that storage space but yamaha don't consult me before they make a bike for some reason Would be a good DIY project if anyone knew how to connect an additional aftermarket tank in the 25litre storage area to the primary tank? ..... I use mine in the city anyway so it's not too bad to stop for a bottle of water and check phone messages sometimes BTW You can get 45km/pl if you ride like grandma going to market..... But if we going to worry about saving fuel you could buy a wave 110i and get 70km/pl....

    You could reshape the seat very cheaply and remove the bump and get it covered so you could sit further back I thought it would be too small for me but I rented one anyway but I'm only 6'
