Contact K. Nattasak on firstname.lastname@example.org marking it for his attention and referencing "Motorrad Enduro Training". They are aware of the farang riding market however they are not sure how to overcome language difficulties. Perhaps we can finally get KTM to get their act together and arrange similar training with Mark Rossi for those in Chiang Mai!
