Gleaming, glowing and glamorous? Hey, it's Phuket Bike Week 2009

Carabao to Tattoos: Bike Week Photo Special

Saturday, April 11, 2009
Photo Special: Album Above

FROM the moment the boy child saw his first Harley, pulled on his mother's hand and said: ''Waaaah! I wanna ride thaaaaat!'' Phuket Bike Week was born.

The 2009 version has something for everyone, and we do mean everyone. If you want a new tattoo, large or small, no problem.

If you need to exert your individuality with a glowing, growling highly polished machine beneath your butt, we can tell you where to go.

If you want to bump into Carabao, see what the Governor looks like in black, and sample some of the many delights that come with two legs on two wheels, you've come to the right place.

And there's plenty more to see and do after last night's opening. ''Waaah! I wanna ride thaaaaat!''
