    I think I still have 3 motorcycles waiting for me in Thailand. With a little luck and a lot of effort due to Covid restrictions (7 day quarantine, Covid-19 health insurance requirement, expensive flight and lots of visa hoops and hurdles to jump thru), I hope to be back in Thailand by the end of the month.
    Today, I was looking at some bikes currently for sale there.
    See anything interesting? I do!
    Can't wait to kick off this next Edventure

    Ed, that is quite a price spread 60k to 280k?

    $1,800 to $8,200 is a large range or is the 8,2k a wish list price? How do you even find bikes listed in Thailand for sale?

    I'm in for the next Edventure, either end of your price range it will still be an adventure I'm sure!

    That Repsol looks hot! And whatever that bike is with a mono-fork. Looks futuristic.
