The newly opened motorcycle themed Rider's Corner Bar, Restaurant and Hotel in Chiang Mai, Thailand, has announced:

"ALASKA MOTORCYCLE NIGHT IN THAILAND" for February 16, 2011. HU Travellers and serious motorcycle riders in the Golden Triangle have recently made the Rider's Corner a motorcycle meeting point in Chiang Mai.

Famed Golden Triangle motorcycle driver and global adventurer Dr. Gregory W. Frazier has accepted an invitation to bring Alaska to Chiang Mai on February 16, 2011. To do so he has incorporated an antique film depicting the first motorcycle ride from Alaska to the "Lower 48", done by Slim Williams and John Logan in 1939, with a modern multi-media show reflecting what motorcycling to and in Alaska is like today. Frazier, well-known moto-journalist and the author of the best selling book and complementary DVD, ALASKA BY MOTORCYCLE, has been to Alaska 27 times and ridden the Dalton Highway to Deadhorse/Prudhoe Bay 10 times.

This is a one-time only presentation to welcome HU memebers and other serious motorcycle travellers to Chiang Mai's traveller friendly meeting spot and share in a night of Alaska motorcycling since it began.

The evening of ALASKA MOTORCYCLE NIGHT IN THAILAND will start at 6:30 PM with a Thai BBQ, for 200 THB. The multi-media show is free, but reservations are required because space is limited. For directions and contact information for making your reservation visit the Rider's Corner

Thailand, and Alaska with BSA -Way cool in hot Thailand

Hi Bob:

Owner of Rider's Corner says ramping up for HU Travellers. He has a "hot" new map of Thailand so fresh the ink is drying. Trails and roads not found on other maps and he said information is "correct." GPS download now. Wrote he might have it in print version that night to announce it being available.

The free Alaska Night in Thailand was his way of saying "Welcome serious travellers to Amazing Thailand."

Asking around could not find a 1938 BSA to ride to the event. Maybe on the way up from Singapore you could find one and bring it along... there were reportedly a bunch left in Burma, maybe some filtered out to Malaysia?

See you.
