    OK Roi Et is behind and it was so fantastic to see so many familiar faces and made few new friend's on the side as well :wink:

    First of all, let me say that it turned to be really nicely organiced and coordinated, A LOTS of bikes as you can see from few of my pix and clips.

    and NO entry fee :shock:
    only problem seems to be for few of us, i cant say that every one agree on my observation, but Music, Commentators and bacically anything what came out from the Speakers where LOUD, there is no change to communicate or talk with any one, unless you keep on shouting directly to they ears.

    ok,, pictures

    There was lot's of nicely modifyed bikes and surpricingly large police precent,, they where intrested of many bikes and had a good looks on them, but nothing more, was told by one of the organicer lads that there is no worries from the cops :wink:

    They even went and inspect my bike and one of the "chief" sat on it and as shor leg thai man, his shoe scrached my seat leaving nasty mark on it, so i went and gave him little bit back and lesson how to "treat thebikes and showed to him 'correct' way to sat on my bike if he want to still tryed,, i gave him few minutes speech and he apology very nicely,,,"that" was good pay back time for all what some of them doing for us on the roads,, :wink:

    KY (I have same name Gel for sale :lol:)

    Yes it was fun and there was tons and tons of people wondering around,, they made a good efford to get it up and running and as far i could see all booths where filled, or there might be few empty one's.

    They had only few accecories, t-shirt's,Buddhas and some tyres and HD stuff for sale, not much but some.

    Lets see what next year will bring...

    Thanks for sharing those pics Marco.

    Good to see bib calculating the tea money on that red one!

    For anyone interested, if like me you like to see the whole image on screen, when someone posts a large image on the forum, the following might be of help.

    Using 2 fingers of the key board at once :wink:

    Ctrl button held down and then press the minus button a few times, downsizes the the browser.

    Ctrl and the plus button increases the size

    Ctrl and the zero button takes you back to your original size.
