I'm interested to know whether I can buy a semi-reliable (I have to keep it interesting) motorcycle in Thailand and get it into Cambodia, Lao and back into Thailand.
Does anyone have any insights, suggestions, comments on getting a motorcycle in Thailand (cost, type etc) and any hassles I can expect in terms of registration issues, boarder bribe sums etc.
Any info, much appreciated.
Assuming you legally buy the motorbike and have the bike passport and other associated paperwork then no problems. GT Rider (http://www.gt-rider.com/) is by far the best resource for motorcycle riding in the region. Check their FAQ on buying a bike so you know all the steps required -- nothing too onerous.
