Today at around 2pm at the Chaweng lake Pavilion the 2nd Thai Red Cross Charity Motorcycle ride took I went a bit early to take some pictures of the bikes and the gathering of men and women clad in leather and black T-shirts and to smell some burned rubber and gasoline fumes.
If this doesn't sound like a motorbike meet than I don't know what does. The weather was lovely and everybody seemed to be in a good mood and and thee was a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. There was a nice mix of Thai and Western bike riders and after last years successful ride it was nice to meet up again and see them taking on Samui roads for a 2nd year running!
It wouldn't be Thailand if there wasn't a Buddha blessing and although there weren't any monks around, these ladies took care of the good luck wishes.
A group picture of the Red Cross people, organisers and the Samui Predators chapter in front with some of the Samui Pirates on this picture as well.
It was time for a 'Gentlemen, start your engines!'
The first meters of this years ride. There will be a stop in Lamai for an hour or so to get a drink and a bite and they will end in Nathon at the pier where there will be a party with drinks, food and live music by Bob Color!
Later this week some more pix.
