Khon Kaen Bike Week.



I blasted down to Khon Kaen on Friday and arrived early Afternoon after a Great Ride. Checked into our Hotel the “Pullman Raj Orchid”. Long was waiting for me after Flying there from Bangkok where She had been on Business so we were making the Most of Our Weekend away hence the Great Hotel i normally stay in more modest Rooms when i am alone!!! It also happened to be where some of the Harley Guys from Bangkok were staying! John Gooding and the Other Organisers of the Event turned up to Greet them so it turned into a Big Night but unfortunately I can’t Publish those Photo’s!!!

Next day we all meet at the Site for a Ride Escorted by the Tourist Police so My Better Half Long Rode along with them!!! 
It was a Fun Day. Nice Ride around the Area. I meet up and had a good Talk to Erik Svensson who is the Owner of Harley Davidson Bangkok , He is a Real Nice Guy and was staying in the Same Hotel as Us.

With the Heat we retired to the Hotel late afternoon and relaxed before the Evening when we went to the Party for a Quick Look.  A Guy I had Meet earlier Renzo Ambrosini had Entered His Ducati in the Bike Show which He won!!! His Ducati was Really Tricked out and Hard to Pick all the Changes unless You had a Sharp Eye. Top Stuff.

This Photo doesn’t really do the Bike Justice, It is a Stunner!!! 
There were also lots of other Bikes to See, Check out the Size of this Rear Tyre, Got to be Great for Cornering??? 

There was quite a lot of different Entertainment on Stage as well.

We headed back to the Hotel to the Ground Floor Brewery and loads of other Guys turned up as the Party started to slow down. Ended up a Fun Night! Sunday was an Easy Day for us relaxing until the Evening when we were meet by John Gooding and a few other People still Present and West Who just arrived that Morning! 

Developed into another Good Night! Thanks to John who took us all out for the Night! Monday Morning had breakfast and Rode Back to Chiang Mai with West. Great Roads on the Way but it was pretty Hot and everywhere was Smokey and Char-coaled from all the Burning. This is the Length of Thailand as i saw it all the way last week when we Rode down to Burapa! Pity these Idiots didn’t learn the Alternatives instead of Burning everything!!! Great Weekend all the Same. Thanks Guys.
Cheers Ian
