Burapa Bike Week to be held on the 15th and 16th February. The event will take place at the Pattaya Sports Arena in Soi Chaiyapruk, off Sukhumvit Road and will hopefully include 3,000 bikes from around Thailand. The event hopes to encourage the public about road safety and the wearing of helmets. There will be a number of bands playing and an antique American car show. Some of the proceeds from the event will go to local charities.
Looks like at there are a Few Bikes going down from here in Chiang Mai if anyone wants to Join Us :?: At this stage there will be:
Mike on His Harley Dresser. Robert on His BMW Dresser. Me on my Tiger. and i think another Harley. Rough Idea is leave CM Thursday 14th and stay at Nakon Sawan or somewhere?. 15th arrive in Pattaya. 16th Bike Party. 17th Head home either all the way or stop off for another Night?
Easy Riding no racing, So if anyone is interested let us know .
Hi Ian, Nakhon Sawan is as interesting as Novosibirsk in deep siberian winter; try to make it down to Lopburi, recommended Hotel: "Lopburi Inn Resort" (not the Lopburi Inn which is a fleabox) its a little outside of town in direction of Saraburi. Nakorn Sawan-Chainat-Singburi turn left to the 331 to Lopburi. After overnight stay continue from Lopburi to Saraburi, about 10 kilometers from Saraburi turn left to Nakhon Nayok route #33 down to Prachinburi, follow this road until you come either onto the 304 which southward merges with the 331. Carry on on the 331 until you meet the 36 that means Bkk-Rayong highway, and just follow the last kilometers to Pattaya. With this you avoid Bangkok, any tollways the motorway on which you cannot drive anyway. The 331 is 4 lanes (2+2) with little traffic and next to no police, if you drive via Kabinburi there's sometimes some guys in brown with real radar ! More interesting is the small road via Si Mahaphot, sorry I don't have the roadnumber because have driven this one for many times and remember by sight. If you choose this road, please email or call me as I'm living on the 331 at the area where they just expand it to 4 lanes, place called Bowin, if the timing is ok I will join you from there or even go up a little on the 331. Least you can get some refreshements at my house. Looking forward to see you again, cheers Franz
Ian, one more recommendation for a way back to CNX: Same way on the 331 up to Prachinburi. From there on take the route #3077 described in the Eastern Thailand-Khao Yai post up to Pakchong via Hua Khao and Ko Ta Moi, take workpermit or Thai drivinglicense with you for local National Park admission. Pak Chong up to Chai Badan, it's a small but scenic road with next to no traffic, join the #21 via Petchaboon to Lomsak, #12 to 'Philok', #11 via Uttaradit Denchai to Lampang and CNX. Overnight stay recommended: Khao Yai 20 kms before Pak Chong. Around this area a lot of good winerys and steakhouses. Cheers, Franz
