    Sorry I missed you guys coming to Sisaket I am in Australia & NZ for a while, I did hear that you were coming.
    I'm not surprised crazy Tony had a few bits falling off his Kawasaki 1600. The whole rear swing arm was widened to fit the fattest tyre he could get and everything had to be re fabricated to accomodate it. It was an expensive tyre so he won't be too happy if it is shot. Anyway good to see him and Gino(2 members of the so called United Knights) out riding the countryside. Hope I can be with you next time.
    Cheers, Peter
