second that mate!
When in BKK and in Asia as a single traveling male, you literally have to beat the 10+'s off with a stick (no pun) . They actually as a matter of course, added the women on to the hotel bill as I checked in.

It's poetic justice. longhaired overfed leaping knomes rule the roost, while snooty blond barbies are sent packing.

I make a motion we revoke Beemer Boys handle. He wasn't satisfied enough to let me ride his Africa Twin in Cambodia, just to make me more jealous, he went and bought a second one even shinier than the first. Couple that with owning a KTM and being in the process of selling his GS Adventure, his BB credentials are shot.

You mean the twins here ???



Once again showing that no good deed goes unpunished, here I go and help out a fellow ADV rider by letting him use my bike. And what do I get back??? Bitterness and attacks on my user name.........I was going to let any ADV rider that comes to Thailand use my bike, but now I may have to rethink that..
Hope you can find more night life in KL than I found. Ride safe.

Hey KTM Africa Twin Boy

(doesn't flow as well does it)

nice to meet the twins at last, and great to meet SV in Hat Yai. I steered him out of town away from bandit country. Please don't revoke twin visiting rights just yet, its been a bit busy here. I'll be up there soon !

Glen, Robert should adopt the handle I coined for him back in Phnom Penh: Bike Slut. It definitely fits, don't you think?
What say everyone else? Should beemer boy become Bike Slut?

Am not so sure. Slut seems to imply someone who gives up their morality in exchange for money. I seem to be on the paying end of the transactions........
Follow up story on your Minsk. Instead of being scrapped, the Thai guy who took it told me last week he did some some sort of jury rig weld fix on it, and it is now running around his farm right now. It cannot hit the street, and its life is pretty much up to guess work, but he seemed pretty proud of bringing it back to life,,,,,,,

All things considered, Moto-whore is more appropriate.

Robert, the Minsk lives, eh? Neat--I grew attached to that old girl--was sad to see it go.

I think you should add one to your harem...

Leave what alone??? Did my tongue in cheek attempt at humor get lost in cyberspace??? Watch out for the one speed trap on Borneo, a little south from Brunei. There are a bunch of signs telling you to slow down, and then there is a guy with a real radar gun. My friend from Hong Kong got nabbed there with a hefty fine, and I just missed getting caught , going slow more by accident.

Glen, that music festival looks like an outstanding event. I see the scenery is good there, too.
