Hi Joko,

I'll be riding down with a bunch of guys, both Thai and Farang, some are members here on GT-Rider, but most aren't.

Not sure where we're staying yet- others are organizing the details, but would be cool to meet some fellow GT-Riders from Malaysia and Singapore!

Happy Trails!

Tony

I should also be around for the week. Let me know what the events are and where people are and I'd love to meet up for a ride, a beer or both. Feel free to PM me.

Cheers!

Hi All!

I'm planning to join a Yamaha organized ride from Bangkok to Phuket for the Bike Week. I'm not 100% sure what the ride schedule is. Bard's out of the country working and Trent's bike will not be rideable for another 6 weeks or so, and I hear Peter sold his XJR1300 and is looking for a new bike so I'm no longer quite sure who's still going at this point.

I will try to swing by the Yamaha Big Bike shop tomorrow to drop off some parts for Bard and to double check with K. Ek or Mr Man about the ride. Might be a little weird for me to show up on a Kwacker if my usual Yamaha "sponsors" aren't there... But then again- those guys are so cool they probably don't give a crap about it.

I believe the ride is scheduled to depart Bangkok on Thursday the 9th and we'll overnight in Ranong the first night and continue on to Phuket via the Coastal Highway 4 on Friday. I'll double check tomorrow and let you know if I can get more details, ok?

Anyone else is thinking about going from Bangkok area? Chime in!

Happy Trails!

Tony
