    I can confirm that we are now firm for Saturday 13th November 2010, for Volume 3 of Khon Kaen Bike Week. Really ought to call it KK Bike Day, but that would not fit in with Thailands thinking for these events.
    Expected venue is the University Exhibition hall surroundings, same as Volume 1 in 2008. That and other details to be confirmed shortly.
    Forgive me for separate topic for this post, but the existing bike week threads are rather long and unwieldy. One calender, just for the current year would be great.

    There are at least 3 seperate groups riding Chiang Mai to Khon kaen, with different schedules.
    I will be leaving 8am Friday morning for a relaxed ride, arriving before 4pm. I will probably have to stay thro Monday to finish some business there, but others will return on Sunday morning.

    All packed up and ready to ride to KK Friday am.
    Really looking forward to my first KK bike week as a visitor to the town, although still been pretty much involved with the concept of this one and the early planning, not so much later organisation.
    Also looking forward to meeting buddies from various parts of the land, ride safe, see you Friday pm at the Kosa beergarden, or Saturday at the event.

    Hardly been home since then, and was waiting for more pics to be available from KK web site. One group had a couple of Bob's, Gary and Well and maybe others. Unfortunately one of the members had an accident and spent a few days in Loei hospital, now back in CM recovering well from some broken ribs etc. Ian and a good few others rode down and suffered 2 accidents, causing one rider to have to return to CM, and Ian himself was delayed with a bad puncture.; not related to the accidents. One of his group members also had a rough night when he decided to argue about wether or not his bar bill had been paid. My group actually went there and back having good trips with no incidents. The bike week itself and the morning ride to a school both were very well attended and went very well. Tony promised a report, and I will make sure something is published soon here. Plenty now on khonkaenbikeweek.com if impatient.

    Sorry for the Delay Gentleman but this should appease the Situation on Photos!
    From CM we started off Late and at a Frantic Pace for reasons I won't go into now! This lead to Mike on His Harley to Crack on ahead from the Lampang Shell station to get some Lead on Us so as not to slow Us down! Anyway once We left heading to Denchai around a Corner and this is what We came across!
    Harley Down!

    The Skid Marks!
    [​IMG]
    The Damage!
    [​IMG]
    The Cause of the Crash, Some sort of Oil Slick of Something spilt on the inside of this Corner! Very Slippery as West demonstrates by sliding along in His Boots! Not Much chance of Saving it once You have hit it!
    [​IMG]
    Unbelievable but Mike Road it back to Chiang Mai only to find He had a couple of Broken Ribs and a Broken Wrist!!! At 72 Years Old just goes to Show this Ex Navy Seal is Still One Tough Bastard!!! I take My Hat off to You Sir!
    From here there was a mixture of errors etc which resulted in Me getting Separated from the Group and As Fate would have it getting a Puncture in the Middle of No Where!!! Something Stabbed My Rear Tyre and I had a pretty instant Deflation which is Extremely Rare for a Tubeless Tyre and Quite Scary for me Trying to come to a Halt!!! After Much Waiting and Cursing My Luck I was finally Rescued By a Nice Thai Couple who managed to go off and Find some Local who came trundling back about an Hour Later with a Plug and a Compressor! Unbelievable!!! Off I went again cautiously testing the Repair but after 50kms or so started picking up the Pace and ended up Blasting towards KK. I actually caught up to John Gooding and His Group on the Way and when I finally arrived at the Kosa Hotel I was the First of Our Group there!!! Anyway checked in Showered and Time for a Beer!!! Had quite a lot of Guys there from all over Thailand including the Secret Soi Guys!
    The Kosa Beer Garden.
    [​IMG]
    Good Night had by all! Next morning once I had got up I found out Our Mate "Crazy John" had gotten into a Disagreement with a few Thai Guys about 5 am in the morning? This was resolved with a Quick Beating with a Bat and left John with several Stitches in His Head and Multiple Bruises all over!!! Sort of Put His Weekend to a premature end? Not to be Disheartened We carried on in Fine Form and Washed Our Bikes!
    West's Multistrada in New "Pikes Peak" Livery!.

    As I was Leaving I saw this Low Rider Pickup.
    [​IMG]
    I was walking past it and happened to look in the Tray and Check out this???
    [​IMG]
    Far from a Professional or Safe Modification??? As He was driving away the Tray was actually flexing in the middle and bouncing up and down!!! Bizarre!
    Anyway next morning We were up early and headed back to CM. The Ride Home was smooth and Uneventful by comparison to the Previous two days so nothing to report from that! Cant Wait for the next one!!!
