    "Bye for go" does not make sense to me. Maybe the person said "Bye for now." "Bye for now" means goodbye for now, but see you soon.

    Hi, Dimcl and Elizzy,

    the conversation is between a chinese student and a foreign professor. The student is raising this question on a forum, since he doesn't understand the saying. It could be that he misheard what the professor said.;) Many people responded they had never heard this before.

    I would say that this phrase has either been misheard or misunderstood in some way. Elizzy's guess is as good as any: "Bye for now" could sound like your sample phrase if said quickly and casually and is a very common phrase heard on parting.
