    This years Bangkok Motor Show to be held at BITEC

    Public March 28 to April 6
    Trade March 26
    Press March 27

    (No doubt Ian Bungy will sneak in before me again, using his Trade Pass, and post his report first)

    There should be most of the motorbike dealers represented here this time, unlike the zero showing at last December's Motor Show.

    Sorry for my ignorance but where is BITEC?
    Would be good if there was a comprehensive showing from the bike manufacturers.

    Dougal, very simple, once you come from Sriracha, drive the Bangna-Trat elevated highway and go down to level one at the 'Bang Phlee' sign, carry on in direction Bangkok, after passing Central Bangna Store on the right side, keep left and you'll soon find BITEC, huge building on the left side with a big parking space in front of it, it's shortly before the intersection Bangna-Trat//Sukhumvit-Samut Prakarn. If you come on the motorway turn left in direction Bangna (not BangPaIn !!) until you meet the same highway, right for Bangkok and same as above. Rgds, FR

    Yeah. At the Burapa Bike Week, I saw only a Harley stand.
    Hopefully Triumph and Ducati can make a showing.
