    Oh awesome! Damn, was planning on going to Nan that weekend, then heard about the MC Lobo Bike Party in Nong Khai same weekend and decided to go there, but now I hear Marco can't make it so I'm tempted to change plans again... Decisions, decisions- so many great places to ride! :mrgreen:

    My info is the main party is on the Friday 15th, but that actually strikes me as odd, because I would "naturally" figure it to be the Saturday 16th; but then again the dates are 14 -18th.

    It would only be a gay chopper scene if you were only focused on "gay choppers", but so what.

    Luke "any info appreciated" good idea, when are we going to see a trip report from you - you must be getting tired of lurking after all these months.

    I will be heading out of Cnx tomorrow late morning. Riding in on R1091 again. PM me if you want to ride over together. Moto-Rex is in Phayao tonight & will be riding in on R1091 as well.

    Yes Marco- that was the 1268 along the Thai-Lao border- very cool road through some stunning valleys.

    Poor Spud couldn't join us on yesterday's fantastic ride-
    011610SpudsTireSm.
    It's the second time he's come to Nan and been unable to ride :roll: (Last time was a broken clutch cable...
    Fortunately Bakerboy was able to get in touch with ShowPow in Bangkok and they sent a new tire up by bus that arrived last night. Now Spuds trying to find a shop here in Nan that can install the tire on a Sunday morning...
    Ha ha! Wonder what time we'll get back to Bangkok :lol:

    Well it was called the Nan Country Music & Biker Festival, and the emphasis seemed to be on the "Country" Music aspect with the Bikes second.
    Different it was, but none of this was negative & I positively enjoyed myself all weekend such that I'll be back for sure at the next one.

    the moral of the story - watch out for the mud under the grass (if you can.)
    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    It was a pleasure meeting up in Nan with you guys: Tony, Tony, Gerhard, Slash & Moto-Rex. Thanks one & all.

    The Nan Country Music & Biker Festival was indeed an extremely pleasant change to the regular noisy bike festivals. Well done Nan! 8) 8)
