Found this on one of the forums relative to Udon. I'm going to check it out.
Ever since I arrived here almost a decade ago, I kept hearing stories about how changing the color of one's motorcycle is either a 'no-no' or too expensive or any number of bad things that can happen if you DO decide to change the color of your motorcycle.Well, after hearing all these stories, seeing similar posted here and there and even having friends warn me with fear in their eyes, I went to DMV today with a friend who is a member of the Udon Police Department as a witness and as a Thai translator. I was determined to get the straight scoop once and for all.Here it is, step by step, as it was explained to us both by TWO members of DMV who certify the Green Books on motorcycles.1. Go paint the motorcycle.2. Come to DMV with the motorcycle and the Green Book.3. Pay 25 baht to make the change in the Green Book.4. Go ride.We looked at each other and laughed. Then we asked again because we didn't believe them. Then they laughed. Same story. 25 baht. I was shocked and hysterical over all the worry I had over this, that I forgot to ask about cars and trucks. Next time I go back, I will ask.DISCLAIMER: We live in Thailand. What happened for me today, may not happen for you tomorrow. It may not happen for me tomorrow, either. But that's the story today.
