  2. There was a live band playing outside to attract the punters & drinkers

    300433=19844-IMG_1590.

    300433=19845-IMG_1600.

    There weren't many around midweek, so we helped out with the Jack Daniels
    In the bar

    300433=19846-IMG_1593.

    & out the bar

    300433=19847-IMG_1778.

    the only action for awhile was the lighting stand at a booth next door falling down

    300433=19849-IMG_1596.

    more than once!!

    300433=19848-IMG_1598.
    funny for us, but not for the staff of the booth.

    Amine Ara from Asia Riding Adventure & Bike Rental in Bangkok had a booth

    300433=19850-IMG_1653.
    Amine is a cool guy & looks after his customers well.
    If you want to rent & ride / tour from Bangkok he's the man to go to.

    300433=19855-IMG_1932.

    The Alpinestars red white black mesh jacket for 6,500 baht was a steal I thought.

    300433=19854-IMG_1931.
    300433=19858-IMG_1936.
    but I'm not sure on the new touring jacket, as it still looks too hot here for me. Maybe it's ok for the cold season &/or the very end of the wet season when it has cooled off?

    The V-Stroms 650 + 1000.
    I was keen on the 650 but had a close look at the 1000 & wow.
    I'd love one, but at the price wanted, no thanks. The 650 is still the value for money way to go I reckon.

    I hope some of you guys enjoyed the pics.
    There's a lot going on out there in the booming Thai motorcycle world - indeed these are good times to be here in Thailand - living & riding motorbikes.

    Thanks to Bungy, Brian & Frank for the company & good night.
     
  13. It was a great night indeed.

    The two towers of beer at the start certainly helped.

    Good to see you and Bungy in the Big Mango.

    Cheers
    Brian

  15. Yes thanks to everyone who attended Top stuff. Spent the Afternoon with Ron then within 1/2 hour of Him leaving Brian, Frank and David Turned up and the rest was History so to Speak! So Great Bikes the V-Strom 1000 was very impressive as was the Honda F6B! The Motorcycle World is Changing Rapidly and I heard some Impressive Rumours at the Festival but I will keep them to Myself and see if they actually eventuate? Way things are going We will be spoilt for Choice soon. What a Contrast to a few Years Back!
