  4. Great report and photos Marco!

    It was great riding with you and Harri again. Great to meet Ray and see him mobile and on the road again.
    Also Tony BKK and the BKK hoodlums; only remember Anthony & Andrew.

    Loved the beer and soda fight!!

    No reply from Franz yet on that lovely bike we picked out for him????
     
  5. Marco, very nice report & lovely pictures !!!! Sure you, Peter, Harri & Tony enjoyed that one a lot !!!!!
    Well I hope you mean the KSR135 in pink :wink: , YESSSSS !!!! That's how one of my not yet bought bikes will have to look like, haven't yet decided which one will be the new No. 6.........maybe a C90 or C100 but NO Vespa...... :oops: , cheers, Franz
     
  6. Yes Franz, he ment this

     IMG_0505.jpg /Tour Mainly fucused Udon Thani bike week/N.E. Thailand Motorcycle Trip Report Forums/  - Image by:  "Marco" at GT-Rider Motorcycle Forums

    But i still dont understand what peter ment, when say that i have hollow leg's :?: :?: :?: :?: :?:
     
  7. We have decided Marco needs an "Award" for his efforts in teaching hill tribe people how to cultivate steep land in between banana trees without leaving the seat of their motorcycles. His favoured steed being a Bavarian Moscowitz, we have decided to grant him use of the following number plate:

  8. HARRI
    55555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555

  9. Harri that's a beauty!!!

    Great stuff guys!

    Marco, it's better to have hollow legs than a hollow head, nah?
    When are you guys planning a "beer/soda" rematch?

    Franz, all I can say is that if that bike had been for sale we may have bought it for you!!!!
