    Well guys i'll compose this report by using Opera browser and hopefully there would not be a problem to you guys to read it.

    There will be typos as i dont wanna copy-paste from word so bear with me ya'll :wink:

    This was partially work related trip for me and i statred from home on Tuesday Feb 2 and was back home Sunday 8 Feb.

    [​IMG]
    Mostly empty road and my self and thought...
    [​IMG]
    Bfast time, thai style at 9.30am just after Prakhon Chai.
    [​IMG]
    Checked in to Welcome Plaza in Pattaya, mainly chose that as it has very huge rooms and large secure parking area. room was at 8th floor, looking over pattaya beach.1350thb inc buffee bfast(not the cheapest but close by beer joints)
    then on Thursday noon time me and Peter hit the road and end up to Korat and picked up latest edition of our group,,Harri,,,we put harri to walk and he complanes that in his 20yrs in Korat he hast walk so much,,55555 Harri life is full of surprices as you meet new people..
    [​IMG]
    We eventually end up to 2nd joint in Korat,, name was sotheing to do with Dragons,,,,nice small place and well lots of beer.
    [​IMG]
    And what would be tour with us with out coffee, i think we have done quite exploration of Amason coffee joints now in last few tours.
    [​IMG]

    Few hrs before arrival to Udon,saw this from the distance,,talking abt polution...
    [​IMG]
    Udon is different town,, there Dogs dont walk, they have they own Tuk tuks
    [​IMG]

    Took Dinner in Irish Clock and end up to opposite of it, joint called Meeting point and met few tourist"friendly" girls

    [​IMG]
    While i was cheking the sights, i felt that something very cold has entered to my pants from behing and our dear friend harri was pooring down beer to my arse,, so all hell broke loos and beer and soda water WW II started.
    [​IMG]
    She got whole soda washed her hair and while i sat back down, harri has got one more soda and just simply pored that ALL to my head,, and i was complete soaked with beer and soda,, harri teamed up with girls against me...
    well,, everything closed at midnight so we end up to next join(dont even ask that name,,i have no idea) but in there lads stayed and i hit the sack,,,next morning i was up to ride with Ray and 130 othher bikes(i count all of them)

    We have decided Marco needs an "Award" for his efforts in teaching hill tribe people how to cultivate steep land in between banana trees without leaving the seat of their motorcycles. His favoured steed being a Bavarian Moscowitz, we have decided to grant him use of the following number plate:

    Harri that's a beauty!!!

    Great stuff guys!

    Marco, it's better to have hollow legs than a hollow head, nah?
    When are you guys planning a "beer/soda" rematch?

    Franz, all I can say is that if that bike had been for sale we may have bought it for you!!!!
