    I finally got the wife to take some photos as we were traveling the funny part she got into it ate up the memory before we even got out of Udon. :roll:

    Gotta watch it now the boss is around, we were riding the 535 in those days it was so small that we are standing next to it and you can't even see it. Fun bike for a solo rider.

    Grouping up for the next leg to Nom Som and where the camera ran out of memory thank goodness. This took up an entire afternoon, so the next time you see those hudreds of Photos from Capt. Slash, this takes a lot of work.

    I will try Bangseang Bike week next but first I have to let the smoke clear from between my ears.

    I have to tell you this event was put together great and was really a fun day. Didn't happen this year, Supposedly it will again next year. If it does I really recommend going to it, you will have a fun experience

    Great pics Ray. I've been to Udon many times as the 51% Shareholder originates from Ban Dung.

    Did'nt know there were so many bikers up there.

    Look forward to your next installment.

    Dougal i had a 51% from Ban Dung also once, She ended up with 100% and i ended up going back to NZ and Starting again :shock: Be Very Careful Mate!!!. And Ray they are Not Tough Bosses they are Quite Possibly the Most Ruthless Women in all of Thailand, Down Right Evil :twisted: 90 % of the many Guys i know who got Ripped off in Thailand have a guess where the lady came from :roll: I was fortunate enough to be able to Start again and found a Decent Woman (from CM) Most Poor Buggers don't get that option!!!

    Hi Ray

    I think and as i heard from some other's UBON bike week was crap.

    Maybe because i was left behind with my virago that time what broke down and not even they service car's could not care less, and when called to Tang Moo (The big lad,and main speakerorganizer) told stait to my face, take care your selfs... :cry:

    any how was nice to see you guys and im sure you guys had good evening there.

    Ian,
    I never ignore advice from us "Old Timers" like us, out here. Thanks.

    I hope I learned my lesson when I divorced the first one. Just celebrated our 17th. wedding anniversary on the weekend.

    I fear I have grown old and sedate enough to accept living under tyranny!

    Dougal there are a lot of bikers in Udon, several group actually, but in this event here were bikers from all over Thailand.

    Ian mine is iported from Chaing Rai :wink: Tough enough though she needs to be with me. I'm lucky I decided after my first year these Udon girls were just to smart for me :lol:

    I won't go so far a to say Ubon's meet was bad I will just say that I enjoyed Udon's much more.
