Lunch was at Khrua Thep on the lakefront, where we were joined by the legendary Moto-Rex, homeward bound from everywhere in Thailand after weeks on the road... He'd arrived minutes before us, inbound from Nan :thumbup:

Photo: courtesy Phil Gibbons) Tucking in behind them at the traffic lights was amusing.... watching the astonished looks on the faces of the male drivers as it dawned on them that these were GIRL BIKERS!!! Priceless!!! And blast-off on the green lights was impressive, I have to say "Well done, ladies!"

NB: I have NO idea why The Goddess was trying to 1.) kick me, or 2.) attract my attention

:lol-sign: I have no idea either. Could this be a clue?

Perhaps she was applying her sole to re-direct your soul to the appropriate one of the 5 hot birds :take-that:

All these great trip reports are making me impatient.
Only three and a half weeks until I arrive in CNX for 3 weeks of "dental work" :happy4:

Glad they all returned home safely . Apparently Chaing Rai suffering the effects of a tsunami after their big night out yesterday.
Eurodiner happy to sponsor the girls T-shirts but knowing the girls the only criteria will be that they are '' super tight " . Might be better to paint them on.

They are already talking about another ride and hoping that some more " lady" riders will join ..

Had a chuckle when looking at the pics, most of their luggage tied to the bikes but a few very large looking back packs also - make up & hairdryers perhaps ?
