I have been told that it should happen end of February.
A guy at a bike shop in KK, called Jo Modify, (Thai guy who builds and modifies bikes), seems to be in the know. I will see if I can get a definate date from him

Met a Thai guy called Jo today, (not same as shop Jo Modify). He lives Pimanchol 2, and runs a club in Phuket. Rides a red Harley Low Rider.
He said he was one of the organisers of KK bike week and that it starts on Saturday 29th March.

If I hear any more details I will post

Hi guys.
On the subject of bikes and Khon Kaen. Does anyone no if there's a Kawasaki dealer in KK.
Ive checked out the Kawasaki web site but its all in Thai.

Thanks Rex

Hi,
I tried to find a Kawasaki dealer 3 months back. I was led from shop to shop all over KK, each one had sold Kawas before, but not any more, they then told me where to look next. Never found the last one, allegedly near Lotus.
I concluded that selling Kawasaki's in Khon Kaen was not such a profitable business.

On the original topic, of KK bike week, I believe there is a Bike Party, on the University campus on Saturday 29th March. Not exactly a bike week, but better than nothing. Not sure what time starts, will try and find out.

Below is a pic of a large poster in Khon Kaen giving details of the bike week. Sat 29th a show up at the University, seems Yamaha and Harley are there plus various others like Coke Cola!!. Sunday a bike ride starting at 10am.
As the poster is all Thai, that’s all I have understood to date. Several phone numbers for more details. Maybe some Thai speakers can add more detail.

This is the infromation given to me by a very busy man
translating from Thai on the telephone. So if I
misunderstood lets chock up to olde age and forgive
me.

There will be a party at the University, with a party,
Harley Davidson and Yamaha are supposed to be
represented there. There will a bike show, and prices
awarded by the Governor of I believe Khan Kean.

There will also be the usual number of bike gadgets
Ect represented. That all happens on the 29Th.

On the 30th there will be a Charity ride to a poor
school somewhere in the area.

I'm told the fee is 200 baht

From all I can tell this is not the Khan Kean
bikeweek, but a first time event sponsor in another
fashion. I don't know what that is.

But hwhoknows not me for sure, in any event looks like a good deal

:roll:
200 for good couse :) That's fine if the money gets to the needy instead of ending up in the pocket of some local Poo Yai.

Most of these events have an entry fee, to pay for entertainment, and expenses.
