    Just out of interest, is it safer to attempt that with the side stand or the main stand down?

    Doing at least 100kph then hit the breaks just at the right time for maximum penetration.

    Rooting's more fun when it's risky.

I've noticed one thing those 2 dogs have in common though, they were both Bang Kaews and its in their nature to ward you off with glaring fangs

    I had one run at the wife's car today

    Yeah, single cylinders will do that. They're pretty much motocross engines.

    Get yerself a twin cylinder, triple or inline 4 for the road.

    120kmh is plenty fast enough for the roads from Pattaya to the South, as you will find out

    I will have to pay this Ban Chang another visit, I only went the beach when I rode through, which is 10km away from the main attraction there

    Finally, there's hope for this forum yet, place was spammed up with Flouncy Goes To Khao San Road threads for a while there.

    Topped out a Ninja 650 at 220kph early one morning on the road down to Pattaya around 5 years ago. Think we were going to Koh Chang and took cut off road that goes from Pattaya to Rayong, think there were 3 minivans and a truck in the ditch overall.

    You get past Chantaburi, then every fukkin 5 miles theres traffic lights because the conts wont build a fukkin bridge. Yet theyll build bridges under that 7 highway from Bangkok to Pattaya so you can leap like Bo and Luke Duke

    Guess it's a frequent stop for one of my U.K. friends on his golf outings.

    He sez it's a great place except it tends to be full of loud mouth retired military septics ...

    Hopefully there's another good place down the road.

    Banchang has most things you want. Good schools for the kids, bars, reasonably clean beaches, etc. Just bear in mind it's quiet and not on the tourist trail, you will need your own personal transport most of the time. Rayong and Pattaya 20 and 40 minutes away, respectively.
    Banchang and Sattahip was the first posting venue for the US military here, so there is a history.^ Most of those guys are okay.

    Islands off Rayong.

    Besides Koh Samet.



    Koh Man Island Group of Islands
    Rayong
    The Koh Man Island group comprises three islands: Koh Man Nai, Koh Man Klang and Koh Man Nok. These tiny islands remain pristine and have excellent coral reefs. Koh Man Nai (the smallest of the islands) has a single beach and is only 100 metres across. It is not possible to stay overnight on Koh Man Nai because camping is prohibited and there is no other accommodation available. This is likely because of the abundance of sea turtles around the island - through Her Majesty the Queen's conservation efforts to preserve sea turtles there are plans to turn Koh Man Nai into a turtle sanctuary. Koh Man Klang and Koh Man Nok both have excellent beaches. In addition, being quiet and sparsely populated (and by no means over visited!), the coral reefs around the islands are still in perfect condition. It is possible to rent snorkelling, sailing, and canoeing equipment from the islands' few resorts.
    How to get there: Koh Man Nai is opposite Kai Bae Beach and is accessible by private boat from Pak Nam Prasae (1,500 Baht) or Ao Ma Kam Porn (500 Baht).



    Koh Saket Petch
    Rayong
    Koh Saket Petch is a small island off the coast of Rayong, approximately 15 minutes by boat from Bang Phe. Although accommodation is available on the island, it is limited. As a result, the waters around the island remain clear and the coral on the seabed impressive.
    How to get there: Boats on a regular schedule are available from Hat Sai Thong beach near Bang Phe.
    Contact: If you want to stay on the island, a limited number of bungalows and tents are available for rent. These must be booked well in advance. To book accommodation contact (038) 617-002 (Rayong) and 0-2719-6393-9 or 0-2319-7506 (Bangkok).

    Sound like nice places.
