Elephants and Royal Enfields (Thailand)

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us. Most people who live in or visit Cambodia have also checked out nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and you can get to most of these countries by traveling overland, so put any travel plans, reviews or questions here. Discussions about dirt bike trails in here as well.

Both Rolls Royce and Bentley cars have hand painted pin stripes and incredible to see the clips that Andy posted from You Tube to just see what craftsmen are still around these days.

For your info Andy -

In Australia for the 2019 models and converted to US dollars -
Bullet 500 $6,000 (AUS $8,690)
Classic 500 $6,200 (AUS $8,990)
Classic Chrome $6,350 (AUS $9,190)
Continental GT $6,900 (AUS $9,990)
So just based on the GT we are paying a fair bit more than in the States but then again that may be down to the numbers that the USA imports and thus can gain a significant overall discount whereas Australia is a smaller limited market. Ask a lot of young blokes about British bikes and they won't have much to say which is a shame considering the history of the models that came out of England. Think BSA, Royal Enfield, Vincent, AJS, Sunbeam, Norton, Triumph etc whereas the younger generation just wants something that goes fast and basically looks like every other bike in the street.
