@kennyzz It's my dream to take my XMAX to Phuket..

With the massive underseat storage + a top box on the back, should be more than sufficient space to bring all the barang barang along for a 1 week trip provided you pack light. I've seen other overlanders do the trip with much less space.

Here's a good article from MCN on touring on an XMAX in France:

I took my Tmax to Phuket with just a tunnel bag of clothes.. Xmax definitely have more than enough space.. 

Underseat was all tools and spares.. to me, that should be the way to pack.. 

when I go Golden Triangle or China, i'll just add a tail bag.. Travel light is way to go..

If the bike condition is good, rider's riding habit is good. even a 2B can travel up north. It's only a matter of how much time it will take.
As mention by member, travel lite with essential is important.
Pack what it's needed, Plan your accommodation & route, get workshop address, emergency contact & refuel station.  Lastly ride with a buddy (experience one will be better).
No rush, No fuss, you will enjoy it.

@notoriousj Bro have you taken your X1R up north? A Lot Power GIF by DreamWorks Trolls 

I have never taken my X1R up north although it could be done. I just felt it was unsafe and uncomfortable for me in traveling long distances using a cub.

Our mind is the will to do almost everything you or anyone thought is not doable if you want to. 

Once you ride out our border you are on you own, be prepared with the unexpected. Would be good if you get to know your bike well with the common periodic problem and keep maintenance interval up to date. In the event of breakdown  you could be able to rectify it yourself.

Travel light as much as possible, bring along only the needs, the rest can get disposable during your journey. 

Fully prepared or not you will need to travel with a positive mind.

Good luck... :)

It's not the destination we conquered but ourselves.

hey guys, read quite a few trips traveling but I don't see any much using this bike, any comments?

 

thx :D

(First trip) I ridden a Kawasaki Kips 150 (2 stroke) up to Hatyai before.

 

(2nd trip) Originally wanted to go Golden Triangle/Laos but was met with accident near Jitra thus I u-turn back alone. (too many weird incidents happened) The rest of the group did continue and went to Lao but skipped golden triangle as the dateline is too tight.

 

-Weird incidents-

- bike struck at RPM 7 (retify after 4th round of R&R) (wash carb and settled despite I wash it 2 weeks beforehand)

-GPS went haywire and wire came off thus low batt (check when back in Singapore, wire snapped)

-Separated from group Lost alone in wonderland

-Whole group went into KL city.

- one of the bike overheat issues

- one of the bike have FC issues. 

Kindly read thru at least the intro section first before decide to post any comments.... thanks... :cool:

 

Please proceed to this website/web link if you guys have any technical issues on Kawasaki Kips/KR150, I'll update the 1st POST as and when there's a new question. Newbies questions on the top as well. :)
