    An event like this needs proper preparation for smooth execution..



    Full album here..

    Phil took some cracking shots too... Personally it was too hot for much shooting.. Even the Thais were dripping in the morning heat.

    Loads of really nice Trumpets.. A few absolute crackers.. And WOW Britbike has sold a lot of these up here..

    And a few nice oddities too.. W650.. A Honda GL400.. A nice Custom super4..

    One absolute magic moment was when this arrived.. Flew in flat out.. Parked it in the big bike ranks and strutted off LIKE A BOSS !!! Too cool..



    He was also the lead bike when we finished the days ride into Good View Restaurant too..

    now that looks like a really cool day out...I love those events here where Thai's and Falang join in together with a common interest and everyone just "gets on" with smiles all round...some great looking bikes in there as well...as you say Triumph was surprisingly dominant

    Must have been a big one for you Sef...proper shoes and a Tie...555

    What a fun event! It's great to see all the cool bikes. Wonder how that one guy got a hold of an old police hog in LOS?

    Next time, are you actually going to ride the bikes or will that be a photo op at the gate as well? 5555

    One of the subtle but very appealing things about Chiang Mai, or in some ways being out of a tourist dominant economy.. Is the integration and natural casual acceptance socially and all around.. Outside of the Loy Kroh girlie bars everywhere in town is a mixed or at least welcoming scene, your always getting smiles and raised glasses from the local lads not stink eye, its just natural and friendly..

    Theres lots of mixed groups and clubs, some charity stuff (care for dogs, chiang mai toyride, etc) hobby and interest clubs (mountain bikes and cycling ones, 4x4, CNX photography group, etc etc).. Just people who have shared interests who get along which reduced the farang / Thai vibe...

    Its subtle, its not something that your going to see obviously as a tourist or short visitor, its not something that would even be important as a tourist or short visitor... But its a nice feeling and helps with the quality of life.

    The keystone of the event is the mantra: “If you’re daft enough to race it, we’re dumb enough to let you.”

    Actually my favorite aspect of CM as a tourist is you can mostly go about your business without anyone making any sort of special notice.
    No one makes a fuss

    I also would think there is more integration because it has to be one of the most highly concentrated areas of educated Thais?

    I found India to be the most integrated place I have ever been to. Go anywhere and it is always a mix of Indians and expats and it seemed mostly because they all were in the working industry

    Looks like a fun day out and some great bikes.

    One of the things I liked most about about living in CM,Is although there is a lot of expats and tourists its only a very small part of whats happening there, ordinary daily life with most Thais
    just living their lives without having to be servicing the tourist industry.
