    Sorry, would love to be there (really appreciated the messages announcing the races) but I will be in Laos around that time either in the far north or in the south depending on the latest weather reports from these parts of the world.

    Yamaha have arranged Big Bike rider training in Chiang Mai for Sat 6th and Sunday 7th. I will find out what time this finishes on the Sunday and then confirm attendance at the BBQ. Very generous of Ian and Long to provide the food. Thank you.

    Hope to be not so jet-lagged as to be able to roll down the mountain to join you all for a little while at least.

    First of all a big thanks to Rong and Ian for their generous offer :mrgreen: :mrgreen: .
    Guys, that's a freebie for food and in order for the Ambassador & his wife to provide a perfect set-up & enough munchies it is only clear that all of us who will join, post their planned attendance too......... :clap:...........cheers, Franz

    Will be there...
    However being vegetarian won't make much damage to the BBQ... With your blessing could dig the ground around X-Centre to secure some roots and grab leaves from the trees...
