I did try to order but they wont take it, probably because i'm not a local.

I'm 5.6 but i do feel the need to get some bar risers for the more GS sitting kind of position which i find is the most comfy.

Miji, most of the prices are about the same especially the european and american products.  The only thing i would say is of a big difference is the centre stand. Bigwing quoted me 2100bhat which is about rm220 including installation.  Back in kl the same part is selling at about rm400 to 750 depending on your luck.
Unfortunately twice i went to bigwing phuket and twice they dont have the part in stock.

Yup I do have a few more shots but I'm in the process of selling the adventure to a local website. So until it comes online there, I cant post more details or pics just yet.

Ride Reports, Trips, and Touring / 2000km to Phuket and back
« on: April 21, 2014, 04:35:02 PM »
Hey guys, I finally took the girl out for a proper ride. A 2000km return ride from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, all the way to Phuket, Thailand.
The ride there was broken into two sections at the midway point which is in the town of Hatyai, just 30 minutes after crossing the Malaysian/Thai border.
Nothing much to be said on that part since it was purely on grade A highways.
The exciting part was on the second day, part highway, part B roads and theres even a gravel stage as the highway was still being built.
Overall the CB500X is just what I needed, no more no less as it takes me to Phuket and back.
Ok I do wish for a bit more power but I really appreciate how light and maneuverable this machine is.
A taller windscreen and a handle bar riser is definitely in the list of add ons for the future along with panniers and a bike gps unit.

lots of rain yes, but heat wise, I thought Malaysia is hot but that was until I rode across czech republic in 2012, 42c and it was dry.
Still if I'm riding long distances in hot climates I do recommend having a camelbak with you.
400x, message me if you are heading up to kl.

its really bad here, but I have a feeling its not Boon Siew's fault, its more of the supply.
