Samui Island, Thailand, almost a paradise and a great place to have a motorbike club. For Mike Weber, one time successful DJ and manager of nightclubs across the UK, it is also an opportunity to become a member of a full-patched motorcycle club, the Samui Pirates. This he does and what follows in Thailand - A Biker's Tale is a vivid account, both of Thailand itself and what it means to belong to a club like the Pirates. In a series of richly told anecdotes Mike takes the reader through his progression to Sergeant at Arms with stories both comic and tragic, involving ghosts, fights, drink, women, the lore of the club, and ultimately - death, all taking place within the culture of this marvellous country.
