Thanks for the advice amigos. It looks like I'll start my Thailand tour solo for about 2 weeks on a Honda Wave 125i. I decided on this bike(if you can call it that, scooter really) because it is the most popular vehicle in this country, great fuel consumption, quite versatile, easy to fix and easy to sell at the end of it all. When in Rome.... I'm working on my route currently and I'll get going in about a week.
