    Hello All,
    I live here in CM and have just opened a new motoshop/Bar down by the night safari/Royal flora grounds.
    we have a hydrualic lift table and a couple of roll aways full of tools.
    we sell new and used moto gear. we will also take on consigments sale if you need to get rid of anything you want to sell.

    we play motorcycle racing dvds in our bar and have cocktails and draft beer below city prices.

    If your out on a ride and down this way stop in to have a beer and use a tool.
    Hope to meet some other riders from the area.

    Happy Feet,

    we are located just off the 121 about 200m on the left side, right before the turning circle.
    Follow any NIght safari sign in Chiang Mai and it will lead to the Pitstop.
    I have just installed UBC and will look into the getting the channel for Moto GP and other racing.
    We will be closed today and tomorow (2nd &3rd) due to some cement work being done, but open back up on Friday. We are normaly open from 12 to 12, 7 days a week.
    Come on buy for some bench racing.

    Short of getting B&T to guide me in, which may be an issue
    - do you have GPS coordinates and post a pix for those of us who are visually challenged.

    But well done in doing something that many have thought was sorely needed.

    You may need to add in the courtesy songteaw and overnight parking!

    Welcome to the GT rider forum.
    It's always good to see new guys on the forum & in the area riding.

    But I wonder why the change from highonthai to pitstop?

    Have you given up on
    and are now concentrating on the bar, or doing both with the bar on the off season?

    Well done and I'll definitely show my ugly mug at some point. For the MotoGP, if you have any of the UBC packages you will get MotoGP - channel 66 I think.

    Thanks for the welome. I had tried to login to this new forum with my old screen name, but for some reason could not.

    The highonthai moto/Jeep thing is ready to make a come back at some point. I'd been very involved in my Racing in the States and Mexico so had litte time for the tour thing here. Now that I will ony drive 3 or 4 races of the series, I will have more time for my projects here in Thailand.

    Hope to meet you soon

    This is what I call progress, forget about western toilets and highway building. A bar that caters to the gearhead, hats off to you Scot for putting it together. Will astop by for a chin wag when I'm back in a few days.

    I have been racing the Baja 250/500/1000 races (SCORE series) on 4 wheels for a few years now.

    You opened on the Samoeng Rd near the canal and then quickly closed it.
    Now you've popped up in the new location! What happened there?

    Without getting into the detals.

    I sub-leased that location and after doing all the upgrades to the property things went sour. the landlord was into substance abuse and some other shady dealings which I did not want to be around. So, I cut my losses and learned a lesson. Opened in the new location which I like even more.

    Stopped by the Pitstop bar on Sunday.

    As Scott says, take the Canal road (121) , turn west on the road that goes to the "Night Safari". about 100 meters up on your left, even had a sign in the road for us blind gits. About 25 meters before the roundabout.

    Loved the set-up, he's got three shop stalls combined to make his "Pitstop". One section a retail outlet with off road riding jerseys/gloves/goggles and a proper bike lift that had a Yamaha WR on it with his rollaway toolboxes in the rear.

    The other two stalls are his bar, complete with flatscreen telly that the lovely lady flipped on World Enduro coverage when I rocked up. Great stuff watching David Knight showing us all how to ride a bike properly.

    I rocked by to watch the 125 cc and 250cc GP bikes on Sunday. No dice as the channel was not avialable. The gal said they are going this week to get UBC coverage that inlcudes the channel to watch moto GP. Talk about patron satisfaction!!!

    He's got some of his racing pics; SCORE buggies, MC trials, etc. and memorabilla decorating the walls.

    Love to see this type of venue and wish him nothing but success.

    He's also got "on any Sunday" if any of you louts want to stop by for a beer and watch this classic let me know as its been awhile since I've seen Malcolm Smith in action.

    Scott you got "Dust to Glory" by chance?

    Thank you for stopping by, sorry I missed you. I'm glad you like the place and understand what I've tried to do. I just thought it would be nice to make a place like everyones garage where we all seem to end up in at a party, and talk motorcycles.

    I do have the "Dust to glory" dvd if I can get it back from the person I lent it to. (don't know if you noticed but, my old race car was sponsored by IFC films/Dust to Glory)

    It would be great to have a "On Any Sunday Night", a must see for any (Dare I say , BIKER) motorcyclist...

    Your from california? Where about?
    Hope to see ya soon.

    I'm from Venice Beach, California.

    Let us know if you get the UBC hook-up for moto gP. A lot of us love to yell at the telly whilst the boys battle.

    if snyone wants to get together for a perv at On any Sunday, Dust to Glory or any other bike stuff at the Pitstop i'm game. Post your film desires and lets drop by for a "Pitstop".

    Cheers Scott.
