This was partially work related trip for me and i statred from home on Tuesday Feb 2 and was back home Sunday 8 Feb.

Mostly empty road and my self and thought...

Bfast time, thai style at 9.30am just after Prakhon Chai.
IMG_0414.jpg

Checked in to Welcome Plaza in Pattaya, mainly chose that as it has very huge rooms and large secure parking area. room was at 8th floor, looking over pattaya beach.1350thb inc buffee bfast(not the cheapest but close by beer joints)
then on Thursday noon time me and Peter hit the road and end up to Korat and picked up latest edition of our group,,Harri,,,we put harri to walk and he complanes that in his 20yrs in Korat he hast walk so much,,55555 Harri life is full of surprices as you meet new people..

We eventually end up to 2nd joint in Korat,, name was sotheing to do with Dragons,,,,nice small place and well lots of beer.

While i was cheking the sights, i felt that something very cold has entered to my pants from behing and our dear friend harri was pooring down beer to my arse,, so all hell broke loos and beer and soda water WW II started.
IMG_0458.jpg

She got whole soda washed her hair and while i sat back down, harri has got one more soda and just simply pored that ALL to my head,, and i was complete soaked with beer and soda,, harri teamed up with girls against me...

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:

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!!!!
