37th Bangkok Motor Show

This year the Motor Show had some really nice bikes. I was particularly attracted by the Triumph boot and must have stood there half an eternity to admire the new Street Twin and the T120.
Also this year, I didn't spend much time on bikes I would never consider buying...basically all sport bikes (MV F3 would be an exception, but they didn't even have a stand at the show.), all modern transformer styled abominations, cruisers and adventure bikes. What is left, you may ask. Well, classic styled bikes like the Triumphs really work for me. I also have a soft spot for small displacement bikes, the likes of GPX and Stallion had on show. The BMW RnineT is an all time favourite and dream bike.
So, the pictures below reflect this attitude and only show what I'm really interested in.

 The new T120 looks impressive.

Nice colour schemes too...

 The radiator doesn't look too invasive.

Nice solution for the seat cowl.

That's me on the Street Twin. Fits like a well fitting glove. :-)

15.000Baht for one saddle bag....I'd rather wait for SW Motech

Pretty in red

Absolutely stunning Thruxton R

The future of biking?

Yamaha SR400FI in 2 new colours.

 Very messy compared to a carburetor...

Special SR400fi by The Sports. The genuine leather bag is available @

Stallion bikes

The new Stallion CT400, very similar to the SR, but costs 115k instead of 265k Baht.

Cult underbone Suzuki Raider

Awkwardly styled Raider?

The new Suzuki SV. Overall looks great....

 ...apart from the massive and bulky radiator.

A 'monkied' MSX (Grom)

Honda 300cc cafe racer prototype.

Electro Cub


Now this is interesting. Here we have a Mike Hailwood Replica...the real thing...

And this is the limited edition MH Scrambler. Passable if seen from behind, but the front is terrible imo

 I'd rather have the Scrambler Classic

Still, no match for the RnineT...beautiful!

Welds to fall in love with

And how to fuck up a perfectly good bike

Not a bike, but 2 wheels nonetheless

OK, 4 wheels
