  2. Will put out the info to the CR group. Woraphat and I will be there and are looking forward to it. Thanks for the invite and for meeting us halfway (or thereabouts).
  3. David, have you fixed a meeting point and time?
  4. Meet & depart from the PTT on R1001, just north of the outer ring road R121.
    Departure time 9.45AM.
    That means arrive 9.30am. Fuel up & be ready to go 9.45AM.

    It should be about 50 -60 mins to Phrao = arrive Phrao approx 10.45.
    Stop & regroup at the PTT. Take a 15-20 mins break.

    Depart Phrao 11AM approx.

    Ride 53 kms across R1150 to R118 & turn right to Cabbages & Condoms.

    From the Junction of R1150 & 118, C&C is 6.5 kms south. & on the left - east side heading south.

    Arrival time at C&C should be about 12.15 - 12.30 PM.
    Lunch 1 1/2 hrs approx.
    Depart C&C 2.30-3PM?

    If you would like to come please post here, so we can get an idea of numbers for catering at C&C.
  5. Going to try to make this one. Just rode the 1150 last week from the 118 to Phrao and it is in great shape but a bit of slick moss in the shady areas with all the late rains. One of my favorite routes.
  6. count me in
  7. I will be there.

    Just to confirm ....................... Boxing Day Wednesday 26 december 2012, 0945 hours. (Just that you had Monday 26 Dec).
  8. Thanks Dougal, OMG don't know where that came from, but yes Wednesday 26th December 0945 hrs.
  9. Sounds good David count me in

  10. Will join too, maybe my partner also but not yet sure. Rgds, Franz
  11. David, what is the cut-off date for reservations/numbers attending? Not sure yet how many from CR will go but can I publish the cut-off date and maybe get some numbers for you.
  12. Maybe David is busy, as not replied yet. I think if we can get an idea of numbers by Sunday am, it gives us time to give enough notice to C and C.
  13. Hi John. Thanks for stepping up. I'll see if I get this nailed down by Sunday.
  14. Just in from the Mae Hong Son Loop & it looks like we have 30+ riders.
    A big thanks to John & Tukta for helping organise for GTR.
    If you want to join in, please post here asap. We need to confirm numbers & food at C&C in advance.

    For those unaware GT Rider Christmas Rides & Lunches have been ongoing since 2005.

    Starting here in 2005

    The more the merrier.
    The PTT gas station is on R1001 - 3 kms north of the outer ring road R121 / 2 kms south of the Mae Cho traffic lights.
    Left (west) hand side heading North.
    GPS Waypoint: N18 52.520 E99 00.916
  16. Hi guys, we're just back from a week riding around the North. Would love to join you for the lunch if it's not too late? We're back on cheap little Honda Waves at the mo, though, so will probably just meet you at C&C rather than slow you all down on the ride out! Unless we can organise hiring something bigger before then...

    OK to see you there, or are we too late?
  17. Definately not to late, leaving at 9.45am Wednesday from the PTT or 12.30pm at Cabbages and Condoms would be fine also.
    Have added you to the buffet lunch numbers, and look forward to meeting up tmro.
  18. On small bikes it will be quicker for you, but less interesting to go direct on the 118, Chiang Rai road, we will be coming back that way. However if you like the much quieter 1001, Phrao road and the very scenic and quite twisty 1150, then if still on small bikes you could meet us at the PTT in Phrao, as the last section will be about as quick on your small bikes. We expect to be in Phrao from about 10.45 to maybe 11.15.
    Please do post when you decide what route you will take and we will know where to expect to meet you
  19. Hi John, that's great, thanks! We couldn't get the bikes we wanted till later tomorrow, so will be on the Waves. Not sure what time we'll get going, so best just to say that we'll meet you at C&C - will decide on route depending on getting up early enough for the interesting one!
    Looking forward to meeting you all, Merry Chrimble :happy1:
  20. My partner Neung will also come with his Ninja 250R. See you all tomorrow morning. Rgds, FR
  21. Have a good ride everyone.. Wish I was joining you for this one...

    My busy day will be to buy a new rear tube for the KLX....

    Have a great ride.

  22. Thanks for the invite, guys. T'was a nice time. We should do that more often.

    I was glad to catch up with some previous acquaintances and to meet some other good folks for the first time. And it was perfect weather for a day jaunt out and back.
  23. Well despite missing the ride and the lunch in such a spectacularly crap fashion, we enjoyed our wild waves ride out, and it was great to chat to those of you we got to meet - maybe next time we'll get our act together and be in on more of it! Keep it shiny side up :mrgreen:
  24. A very pleasant, relaxing & enjoyable ride out & lunch today.
    Many thanks to John G & Tukta for rounding up the troops.
    Great to see the guys from Chiang Rai joining us, plus the guys from North Comets.
    It was a pleasure to ride with you, meet, enjoy the chit chat & lunch.

    Some quick piccies

    PTT / 7-11 Phrao





















    Again, Merry Christmas & Happy New Year..

    Maybe there should be more rides & lunches like this?

    Anyone else got some photos.....please post them.
