A big surprise today to hear Alan "Taff" has passed away back in the UK. GTR Handle a-tecracing Well known for his love of off-road riding based out of Pattaya and the last few riding seasons at Baan Ricky Kanchanaburi. Genuine bloke that loved his riding.. The business side always came a distant second. A number of times I asked Alan to give me some coaching and ride around Saiyokyai together.. Always at the end of the weekend he would never take any money and say you are a friend.. Beers it was. We spent a great new year together at Baan Ricky last year.. A few trip reports I can find below that Alan was instrumental in making happen..
