    Yes I will be in a pick-up.
    SWMBO and HWILTBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed & He Who Is Learning To Be Obeyed) out-voted me at the recent family meeting. To be honest I think either one without the other could have achieved the same result!!

    AND 2 other GT boys have asked for a lift from hotel to house in anticipation of being incapable of riding bike!!

    Anyway, that aside.........................I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Franz ,with all the bikes coming this is certainly a good way to make yourself a name in HangDong. How would a Thai translation look =


    Where do we start lining up the many bikes ?
    Any police cover ?

  9. Pikey



    Your timing is impeccable sir. For only the second time this year, I will be away from Thailand and unfortunately, it will be over that weekend :(

    Have a great time!

    Just a reminder

    Saturday 24th of October

    it would be appropriate for all you guys to turn up wearing a GT rider shirt. ... t5001.html

    Please do so for a nice group photo.

    If you have not got one, pop into Mr(s) Mechanic on Moon Muang & pick one up.

    David, you're right, and for the cheap Charlies, they still can borrow one from me.... :oops: .
    Marco, FHP already ordered.......have a save ride tomorrow !! Miss Dougal is already up to Sukothai and whining he's not allowed to drink one more beer, well it's not his Master Ohm that forbids him but the young goreous little lady from Ubon (dooeeyy) that made him suffer..... :wink:

    Anyway, as I have no idea on how many guys & gals are coming, just for you to know: grills (sausages, pork, chicken, fish, salads, dressings, breads, for the local gals some northern food, flied lice and of course somtam dooooeeeeyyy...... :? Snacks, coffee, tea, real Beer, Jameson, coke fanta soda, Spey Winecoolers, anyway if we run out there's a good shop some 100 meters away. Yes and if somebody runs out of cigarettes, I'll have some......all that you need to bring is good mood and hunger/thirst. for some who have eaten too much, I still have some 3 bottles of fathers plum medicine from Austria, always helped me to fall into a coma like sleep...... :shock: .......
    Looking very much forward to welcome u all, see you on Saturday & ride safe !! Cheers, Franz

    Eric & Auke, you are most welcome to join, Auke I still owe you some beers for the successful installation of software onto my antique Streetpilot 3.
    Eric, you won't believe what I just found this weekend on my SRX600's engine. A screwup that goes beyond my understanding: as obviously some local 'mechanic' fitted a SR500 sleeve & piston into the SRX600 cylinder. Piston obviously touched the valves, so grinded it down with an angle grinder and also grinded a little on the sleeve. F... up the threads of the mains for cylinderhead fastening while drawing the 600 sleeve and inserted some other threads with imperial values. Cylinder is 'glued' to the housing with some kind of 'superglue' not silicone. Just found out the 500 problem when I checked the head and the strangly bent main gasket between head and cylinder. Exhaust Valves by the way didn't close even once. Inlet valves were missing the sealing caps, valves were completely packed in 'puss'........I'm gonna take pictures of that and post it. Especially the piston&sleeve in 500cc is what blew me out of my shoes, you can see yourself tomorrow. The bike took me 2 months, the engine will take 4................and I still don't know what awaits me inside the housing, gears, oilpump..............engine was bleeding oil like a pig at the slaughter's when still in one piece.........see u on Saturday !! Cheers, Franz

    Franz sounds like you are organising a ripper party. I trust you and other GT Riders will enjoy yourselves and you have organised a few surprises for all. The sooner I am home the better, working sucks and the rebuild on your Yammy SRX600 will be completed before I see LOS agian.

    Regards to all

    Franz, I would love participate in your hospitality but I fly out tomorrow to meet a mate flying over here from Aus,
    Then R&R at Patters for a few days...Bugger!! Only redeeming factor is i have got him to fill up his bag with a few nice bike goodies!
    Anyway have a good one guys.

    Ouh la la... The SRX 6/SR 500 saga seems very interesting indeed. Should be recorded for future researchers.
    Just a short question as I don't use GPS and am not that familiar yet with the Hang Dong area: how far is "Koolpuntville 9 ('The Legend', Arcade 4, first soi left, No. 88/87)" from Airport Plaza?
    Just approximately (500 meters, 1 km, 5 km...) so that I can open my eyes when I 'll have to turn.

    Sorry to disturb you with that as you might be busy.
  23. Franz

    Franz Ol'Timer

    Eric, should be around 5 kms. you go onto HangDong road from the airport plaza big junction. There's the first trafficlight under a pedestrian bridge just in front of Tesco, straight through, then you pass the next one near BigC, straight trough, then comes a PTT station on your left, next traffic light where you could go to CNX night safari, straight trough, then another one where you could go to Samoeng, straight trough. then you pass another traffic light and KP9 comes approximately 700 meters on your left; there's a roundabout with a big pillar in orange-brown before it, a fountain in its middle. The rest is then simple as above. See u 2morrow, FR

    As I hosted, fotos I didn't take much on my own but here's three of them with the usual comments about my favourite subjects; now one has been added..... :lol:

    "The 3 Monkeys" ...... anyone finding differences between what's in their hands and ........... should give him/her kind comments :oops: :wink: :

    A small Group of GT Riders discussing the serious things of life such as food, drinks and motorbikes, well yes also women....... :p , that was really serious.........:

    That's what was left on survivors at 22:00:

    It was a pleasure again in meeting all you guys and, many thanks for the three + 1 monkeys :roll: , what did they want to tell me I wonder :cry:
    Cheers, Franz
