    Its not far away now and its Songkran and hotels may be problematic.

    I'm on the Eastern Seaboard and on a prvious thread (Esaarn) some of you guys were talking about going down.

    I'd like to go down and Franz indicated he might go as well. So, any of you guys from the North and North-East planning to go?

    If so, what day and where to meet South of Bangkok?
  6. Marco

    Marco Ol'Timer

    Hi guys

    As Dougal said some of are going down,, NOW it's time to put your self for a list,, If you are heading to phuket from KK,Sisaket,Ubon Udon aor any where else on this part of TH,, tell us so we can set up A meeting point where ALL of us can drive to Phuket same time (if you wish t do so)

    We coming from Ubon and have not yet desided where to meet every one, but 1 choice is Nakhon Phatom after BKK, but as many guys are staying in HH we might end up to stay night there,,,

    WOULD be nice if we could get huge convoy either after Bkk or from HH if one wish to stay over night there...

    let us know...

    It's sad when people drinking in they work place and then will be terminated, eventually distroy other vacation.......

    But I'll BE BACK
  8. Franz

    Franz Ol'Timer

    Peter, I'm not yet sure if I can go as the coming weeks I have the yearly shareholdermeetings, they will be here until early Saturday 12th, then I'm still waiting for both my new numberplate & 2 original sidecases for the FJR, if I get everything in time I might leave on Sunday 13th. Will call you early next week. Cheers, Franz
  9. Dougal

    Dougal Ol'Timer

    OK Franz. I'm planninig to start on Thursday 10th. April and not sure when I'm heading back. I think it will all be over by Sunday.

    Total disappointment! I will definately not be going to the PBW next year.

    Apart from the long boring highway riding to get there, it appears the organisers fell out with one another and the Bike Week as such got split into 3 locations. No clear info on that either. One was on the beach, one in the OTOP center and the third in Phuket town. There was hardly any bikes at the OTOP or beach and if it was'nt for the Malaysians and Singaporeans they may as well have closed it down.

    Next year I'll be heading North.

    Dougal, if it's any consolation, I went from Phuket all the way to Chiang Mai for their bike week last December, and that was a complete shambles as well.

    Did you get to see bike expo at Junceloyn, any good.......

    Seems all Bike Weeks are like Inter-Hashes, Everyone Competing to Be the One to Get all the Money!!! If the Idiots would Concentrate on the Object of it all instead of trying to Make a Business out of it everyone would be better off. From every Report i have heard from anyone Pattaya still seems to Rule the Roost for Organisation :!:

    So Guys

    Anyone going to risk Chumpon Bike Week, next month.......
  14. Dougal

    Dougal Ol'Timer

    Guys you're right. The bike weeks in Pattaya, Bang Saray and Bang Saen were excellently organised.

    The bike expo in Phuket I visited in the morning and from The Motorshow pics from Dave not nearly on a par. I only saw BM, Yamaha and a couple of Suzukis and noone seemed to be able to answer any questions. Oh well.

    So TJ, what about Chumphon?

    Marco Ol'Timer

    Dougal and guys

    It's seems like i was lucky to be called back to work and not riding down below,,,but really sorry to hear that PBW was totally meesed up..

    Well,, now work until August and then will see what is going on in the Roads of thailand.

    Adios from Panama canal now
  16. Dougal

    Dougal Ol'Timer

    Yeh Marco you did'nt miss much.
    August is still the rainy season but I could certainly get out for a weekend.
    What is your rotation? I'm still planning a big trip in December.
  17. Marco

    Marco Ol'Timer


    I'm going to miss the tour,, if everythnig is going as it's lookign now, im off back to work on November to Feb 7th..dammit,,,, :cry:
  18. Dougal

    Dougal Ol'Timer

    Hey, the weather is still nice and cool in Feb; I could always get away for a week plus 2 weekends, so a 9 day trip.
    I'll be going North in December anyway so can plan a nice route for Feb.
    What do you think?
    Maybe better PM or e-mail me as we are going off the thread here.
