@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.
