The 14th annual Burapa Bike Week at Pattaya Stadium It was even larger then previous years. More retailers, displays, distributors...and more attendees. The parking lot was jammed with cars and bike and there were more bikes than ever parked within the stadium. Sign at the entrance, greeting visitors A detachment of the Thai army and numerous police provided help and security During the morning hours the crowds were small... A Monster display...with bikes for Monsterman to drool over... A Buell disgraced with a sidecar and horns... Left: 1HP, solid waste, great off-road; Right: Sux off-road, makes smog The Stage is ready for the night's festivities By Saturday evening the crowds were overwhelming. More attendees that prior years. Some estimates indicate there were about 200,000 people in attendance! The music starts and the masses are rocking out to the beat, some were rocking just from the beer.. No bike or car, so these young girls had alternate transportation... Sunday morning, Pattaya Stadium was once again a ghost town... Last month, at a local shop, I saw the finishing touches being put on a custom chopper. I was surprised it wasn't on display at the show as, IMHO, it was superior to anything I saw at Burapa, due to it's creative design and exceptionally fine metalwork.
