One of the highlights of Bangkok entertainment is the yearly Motor Expo. My mate Pek at Shop Steaks gave me some free tickets for this year’s entertainment so I invited Robert and his wife to join me. As with past years, the traffic getting into the parking area was crazy. I really don’t know who comes up with the traffic routing plans, but they really need to find someone who has 1/2 a clue next time.
As with all these expo’s, the eye candy and sexy girls on the stands were worth the admission, so it was a bonus to get in for free this time. Every year there is always something new to feast your eyes on. Although I’m not looking to buy a new car yet, there were a few models that caught my eye. The MG range has been something I’ve come to like and maybe in a couple of years, I may get one of those. They really don’t have a good national coverage yet, but they are getting more popular.
After a bit of wandering around, we came to the bulk of the motorcycle dealers. There were a few new names on display and also the classics like Harley Davidson, Triumph and Aprilla. Alas, the prices of those brands keep people wishing, but the general interest was for Kawasaki, Honda and Yamaha.
