    David,

    Yes I did call 6653617107 this afternoon, around 5 pm. The lady said Rice Hut was fully booked. She offered Bamboo Rooms. I took this for 1 person. I also said I will come with you and other bikers.
    Looking forward to Sunday
    Cheers

    Proposed Ride - day trip to Doi Inthanon "the back way" in the revered tracks of Captain Slashand Ally

    Day - Sunday sounds good but when ever works - but the sooner the better

    Starting from (and returning to) - Chiang Mai - I like early starts but 6 am doesn't seem to go over to well in my limited experience here.

    Why - need a getaway from pretending to be busy and currently seeking cleaner air.

    Me - cautious rider on a D-tracker. Feel a return daytrip to Pai, this Sunday, is a bit much in this weather.

    Cheers,
    Kevin

    Count me in; had such a great time yesterday can happily shuffle around chores to free that day up.

    8 am at the Newest Miguel's (map); I'll have the coffee on and a batch of 'custom' breakfast burritos for any brave souls.

    Otherwise we can meet at 9 and set sail by 9:15

    Hi friends!

    Would like to be "in", but:
    Please, at what pace the 25th trip? And for around how many kilometers?

    In the past few months I've been invited in some thai bikers' racing trips and it was not at all for my riding capabilities... As I didn't enjoy, I'm a little "refreshed" by group biking...
    No offence, but my style is more "legal" limits speeds... And I like to enjoy the scenery as well as the riding...

    So please Captain and al, what's your "riding style"?

    Cheers,
    Gobs

    The links below are 2 trips I have done recently that each include parts of where we will journey on 25th.

    The style of the ride will more likely be @ 80kph and stops for water and relief (Captain Slash lives up to his name alright there !)

    Bearing in mind the mentioned 2 trips are not quite the same as the routing of the 25th, I would hazard a guess the 25th ride will be in the region of 350km.

    The Capt will be on a Honda Phantom, Fishenough will be on a D-Tracker and I will be on my Dragstar, so quite a diverse class of bikes.

    Are you up for this?

    Hope to see you and anyone else who wants a group ride on Wednesday morning for breakfast.

    Ally

    9.00 am eh? I will try & swing by to send you guys off. Too busy right now- preparing for Oz + plus a whole new website design + starting the update for the 4th edition of the MHS Loop map.

    Sorry guys...

    Can't be in for tomorrow! Just had a dating this evening for tomorrow afternoon...

    However, as you are not racers, your future one day trips could fit me as well.
    Hope to meet you and have a ride together a next time...

    Have a happy trip!
    Cheers,
    Gobs

    If it could be shifted back a few days or postponed to the following weekend I will definitely be there in Johnno's honour as I'm working until 26/4 then off for 2 weeks.

    Cheers,

    Pikey.

    My apologies, I'm not going to make it tomorrow. Got injured last night, went to Chiang Mai Ram today and won't be riding again for a week or so. Next time.
