Hi, nice collection there!
Ha ha ha!!! I don't know what's funnier, the Kawasaki in front of the Honda building, or your outfit! Classic!!! (How was the school btw?)
I look forward to meeting you one of these fine days!
Yeah, the outfit's pretty uhm... I would prefer my own gear
You can run what you bring, from a Harley to Hayabusa
I've been to most riding school, this is one of the better ones, Yamaha does have better tracks and facilities but their course is only for their imported bikes customers (Yes they do sell them
The normal course is two days, one on CBR150 and another on your own bikes, or you can rent the school's bike for 2000 baht, they have well maintained CBR1000r or Hornet 600 or a whole host of other bikes in their collection from police cruiser to scooters. Pretty good deal, you can have a blast all day without worries about crashing.
The only thing similar is there's a couple of trackday organizer based at Bira track that have gixxer 750 for hire.
You wouldn't happen to be the guy guy I was... riding at a brisk pace next to for a few miles on Rt 1 from Kao Yai a few weeks back were you?
Just got word from work about an hour ago I may be coming to Thailand for at least 6 months. Maybe as soon as the 25th :eek1
I feel a little overwhelmed. Advice? Insight? Thoughts?
Keep an open mind and prepared to be shocked
Perfect timing- the rainy season will soon be over and the cool dry months of November-March are the best months for riding in Thailand and SE Asia.
Where in Thailand will you be based?
You're not going to believe this but they haven't told me! All that was said to me yesterday was that I could be leaving as soon as October 25th to go to Thailand for 6 months. They're in the process of filling out the paperwork so I'd imagine that will take them at least a month or two. I'm pretty excited though.
No matter how many travel books you've read, experiencing Bangkok's streets will blow your mind.
Don't expect it just to be another city you can move to, but it's best to take it in rather than ignoring it
So as of right now I am going to be coming to Bangkok within the next two weeks. Assuming my work gets all the visa shit right (this has been a nightmare)
Does anyone want me to bring anything from the good ol' USA?
It sounds like I will end up staying in Pattaya. I guess it is about an hour outside Bangkok.
Good luck and give a shout once you get settled. A good website for us Farang is thaivisa.com
I will be in touch once I get settled in. It sounds like I'm staying in Pattaya. Not sure if anyone here is familiar with the area.
I can't help you there. I am familiar with the north. Good luck to ya...
I'm in Pattaya! it's one of the easier city for a westerner to settle in, with most places catering for the tourist and expats, unlike Bangkok where you're never sure if the people you're dealing with will speak English or not.
Culture, on the other hand...,
I'm staying in Pattaya. If anyone wants to meet up lemme know!
Gents (loose definition) I've been out of the loop for a while. Anyone planning any rides?
I recommend storm riders - I did the Phu Hun Rong Kla run with 110 GS and the Um-pang run with over 50 GS with them - fantastic fun. Posted some pics below...
I am getting an HD helmet cam - latest and greatest. Anyone who rides with can now get quality footage (ok, it will be your backside, but hey!)
p.s. what happened to my pics???
I'm thinking about a ride on Sunday. Nothing big, just something to get out of town for a few hrs. You in?
Sunday is tough, and on top of that I've noticed a significant deterioration of my rear tire. I've been puckering up powering out of corners all day running chores in the rain...:eek1
anyhow, call me 084741 4212
