    Saw this poster up at Barcelona BKK

    I met the Thais behind this - he rides a 1100GS & she a new 650GS
    They said that all bikers & bikes are welcome and to keep an eye up on:
    http://www.bmwbikersthailand.com
    as of yet they don't appear to have posted further details [in thai].

    their facebook page

    Sorry to hear about your break-down & lack of support / help. :cry:
    :shock: Shocked toot that a fellow GT Rider would ride on by & not pause to see if you need assistance. I don't know who they were / are, & wonder if they are regular forum contributors?
    Take care & I guess you've made it home by now. :thumbup:

    Marco sorry to hear of your woes - unconscionable behaviour by the Bavarian brotherhood!
    Hope you were able to backload the panzerkamfwagon to a REME workshop for repairs.

    David I believe that Marco was most probably saying that it was "GS" and not "GT" riders who were passing him by.
    If so, par for the course considering the majority of GS owners demographic, sadly.

    Hi guys

    yes i nurtured beemer home in 1st & 2nd gear,, but my clutch must took it hard as engine did not run all cylinders and revs must be kept cranking to 5K (Beeremt top is 9) to keep it running,, it was not pleasent...

    well,, even german engineuty brakes down,,,

    but my Thai mechanic was ready to come immediatelly pick me up from ubon,, unless i could not ride it back...and now bike on on garage,,,hope i get it out b4 next weekend,, as there is roi et bike week..
