  1. Gary, I am glad you posted this as I have the same problem. The speedometer bar itself is visible, but not the numbers. I brought it to Mityon Honda in Pattaya, and was told it needed a NEW SPEEDOMETER assembly. The "bulbs" are small LED lights on a printed circuit board. Yes, papa al, an experienced scooter tech might be able to fix, but I think it would require soldering bulbs on a board. Anyway, I was told I needed a new speedometer. The cost from Honda: 5,000 baht!!!! I hope someone has a more reasonable solution.
  2. Sheryl, I'll cop to one of yours. I was trying to send a private message that you do a good job moderating the Health section. I couldn't find a way to do it. Thanks.
  3. Aliexpress has lots to choose from, but it takes a while to get delivered (usually free). 10-20 days in most case. Solar panels plain, and solar panel backpacks.
  4. I guess it depends on how many you want/need. I was not trying to play hard to get. If you send me your address in a private message, I'll mail them to you on Monday.
  5. I have 14 of them, but I am in Pattaya. See if you can get some closer to home, but if you need them, I have them.
  6. +1 for Pattaya Optical on Pattaya Klang. I tried many who were cheaper, but some had difficulty even fitting a frames to my head. They know what they are doing at Pattaya Optical.
  7. No and yes. I did have my current insurance which is good through September, but I did NOT have one for the coming year Sept 2016 to Sept 2017, because I have not purchased it yet. I apologize for not adding that to my list of papers submitted.

  9. They said it couldn't be done, but I have a new green book. Duplicate Green Book. Whatever. I brought in a 20-baht lost item report from the police, a copy of my passport, and a copy of one page of my green book...and was charge 155 baht in total. Came back the following day to pick it up. BUT...I was now registered until September of NEXT year. So, 100 baht of that fee was for the next year sticker. Despite driving 45km round trip TWICE to the Land Transport Office, I am happy. I will try to track down the owner of the Vespa Green Book.
  10. At first, I thought it was a wonderful idea. Saturdays, close to home, and same price as Land Transport Office. But, alas, it's causing me problems. But less than an hour and you COULD get a tax sticker...but do check it.
  11. I went and handed in everything for my Honda PCX on a Saturday last September. Copy of insurance, green book for PCX, and money. They said come back in an hour. I did not look at what was handed to me. Until a few days ago. I received Daryl Lindsay's green book for a Vespa 125, and his tax emblem.
  12. Thanks for the help. I did find the address, but alas it's in "post office code" that gives the address, but does little to help you find it. I have someone helping me in trying to locate that person.
  13. I went to Big C last September to re-up for my 2559 Tax emblem for the my Honda PCX, and got it all right, but I evidently was handed back the wrong Green Book. I will proceed to the Land Office to try to straighten it out, but if someone in Pattaya with a Vespa also got the wrong book, it might speed up the resolution. It's very possible that we didn't get each other's books, too. But, I thought I would give it a shot. The name of the Vespa green book is Daryl Lindsay. I just looked at my envelope so I could get ready for the renewal, and found the error. Thanks. Send me a message.
  14. I renewed my license 3 years ago and got 6 years. I was on time. It was explained to me by someone at that time that they were in the process of adjusting the expiration dates to match your date of birth. Not sure if that was true, or it's still going on.
  15. Thanks for that. I looked up on the Thai Department of Land Transport Office. Dilligad, you are right. If less than a year no tests at all. If more than a year, you must take the theory (written test). If more than 3 years, you also have to take the road test.
