Congrats on the wise choice of rides. That's quite a journey from Norway to Thailand.
I retired , so maybe you can say pleasure. My wife is Thai and we were tired of winter. Big bikes are admired, but few in number. I missed my big bike so much and was looking around. New BMW too expensive because of import tax. The Ninja 1000 is produced in Thailand and therefore very good priced about 20 000$. I also always liked the Ninja and the special green color. The riding position,integrated bags and the powerful engine, all is perfect for me.Welcome world traveler, glad to have you.
If I may, did you relocate for business or pleasure? In USD terms, how much does a N1K cost in Thailand? Are larger sport bikes popular in that country? Seeing the N1K, what caused lust at first sight?
