Honda Summer Festival at Hua Hin

It seems that Honda and a few selected quality sponsors have hijacked the summer and held a musical festival on the beach at Khao Takiab. There were very few farangs there - probably because they only advertised in Thai. But the whole of Hua Hin and half of the population of Bangkok under 25 seemed to be there. If you were in Hua Hin and missed it, you missed a great party. If you were there and you are reading this on Thursday, it's probably because it took you that long to get out of the car park.

I got there early so I could park easily. Here is a shot of the stage before the crowds started to arrive.



There was lots of scurity - private, police and army.



All very necessary to keep this bunch of potential rioters in check.

This lot, on the other hand, were definitely selling beer. And rather nasty gassy watery stuff it was too; no wonder they need such ladies to part the punters from their money.



For some reason there were also lots of motorcycles and scooters on the beach - I'm not sure what this has to do with Honda. Maybe they were trying to revive the scenes from Margate and Brighton in the 60's.



Note the AA and RAC badges. I wonder how long it would take them to arrive if you had a breakdown.

A few more er.. bikes then -



The owner of this one told me that his speed dropped off by 20kph when he turned the lights on. I wonder why.

A BSA Goldie wannabe, one of a number there. I don't fancy that front tyre in the rain.



Still, it's better tjhan this rather grotesque CG125 turned into a BMW



What must it handle like????

A couple more bikes then back to the girls.

Why do this sort of thing to a Vespa? If you get any sort of power out of it you need to sit over the front wheel to stop it flipping.




And why even bother to do this to any bike?

Some girls like having their picture taken, some are less keen.



These girls are marketing a condo 'Buy a Malibu condo and your life will be enriched beyond the bounds of your imagination' .... I'm on commission.

Well all the prettiest girls seemed to be with the ugliest men - so that rules me out. Back to the bikes then.....



You don't see many of these in Thailand.





And I'm not sure I ever want to see one of these again.

Thanks BH. The music was a bit mixed, Ska, Reggae and an American band that I couldn't tell you what they played, amongst others - but I'm hopelessly out of touch with contemporary music. They did have one side band playing excellent rock and roll though.

Aye! 'Twas a good time! Loads of young Thai things running around, frolicking drunkenly, listening to and loving the rather decent Thai pop.

I got there quite late and yeah, it was hell getting there...so much traffic.

But playing in the watery effluent with all these hot ladies giggling around me was so much fun. And I met this amazing hot Spanish chick who, sadly, declined my invitation to marry me, but was super sexy regardless.

Good times.

Normally, I do not like to brag.

This is our car, some Honda Civic. Notice the number. Yes, hillbilly has contacts...



Yes, we are #1 in the race.

How did we finish?

I think we were 47 out of 60 some cars.

Something about following directions...
