Hello biker friends!
Beeing new to this forum I will just tell a little bit about myself. 68years old, former owner of 3 Yamahas , 2 BMW K 1200rs and now one Honda. Just found out after having seen the 2014 Ninja 1000 at a shoppingsenter here in Thailand that I just MUST have this bike. I will get it in mid november and try to prepare myself. Before I moved to Thailand last year I were living in Norway and drove about 25 000km a year. Here in Thailand no winter so maybe drive more here. I am sure the Ninja will live up to my expectations. I will inform you later when I have tested it for some kms.

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?

Having lived in Norway and visited Thailand, I can say you are better prepared for riding in Thailand than the average American. Despite that, you're a brave soul to be without an air-conditioned protective metal cage in that part of the world.

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.
What are you riding?
