    The best option should be the last weekend of the month.
    Saturday - Sunday November 27 - 28. :thumbup:
    The previous weekend with Sunday 21 November is Loy Krathong & not a really good time to travel.
    However I need to check Chiang Mai Toy Ride events as well.

    Yep, put me down for a room as well please David.

    May I also suggest 100THB per head "joining fee" which can be gathered up as a donation to be given to the temple where the plaques are?

    Cheers,

    Pikey.

    I am trying to talk stonevedder into joining you guys, but he is worried 'cause he only arrives in CNX the night before you leave (and would need to organise a bike from Mr Mechanic) and won't have met any of you until the night before either...

    Might be an extra if the planets align...

    What time does Mr Mechanic shut up anyway???

    Cheers,
    Daewoo
