    Hello from Bangkok, Thailand!

    Hey everyone  :031:

    I just upgraded from a BMW f800 GS to a NOS 2018 Versys 1000. The wife and I love sport touring around Thailand and SE Asia when the borders open fully again. The GS great, no question, but I never really did much off-road and itís too vibrate-y for fully road touring. Love the smoothness and broad power band of the 4 cyl.

    Got a great deal on the new 2018 base model, so was able to add crash bars, sport lights, a taller windscreen, hand guards, USB power, full OEM panniers and top case, radiator guard, and quad lock phone mount!

    First tour coming upin Feb: 1500 miles around NE Thailand exploring temples, waterfalls, and following the Mekong river. Pics to follow.

    Cheers to all.  Jeff

    Welcome
    I have been to Thailand many times and would like to go back again beautiful country and a great place to ride. I spent most of my time there around Krabi and Ao Nang beach. I would rent a scooter and do some exploring occasionally.
    I love Thailand
