    Luke,

    Post a message on Thaisuperbike@yahoogroups although most based in BKK, someone may feel the need to come to CM. Recently a couple of guys went to Udon for a long weekend.

    I'm back in Chiang Mai first week of April so good chance of a blast somewhere. So long as you don't mind waitng now and then as the Duke is no match for Jap rockets.

    Luke, no mods other than what was on when i bought it, LeoVince titanium and Giles rearsets. But I need to have a lot done to it when i get home to bkk next week. A new ECU would be nice to find, my bike cuts at 190km/h cos its Japanese.
    I wonder, how do u post pictures here in the messages?

    ah mr.snail but we know it is in the hands of the rider, i have personally seen the snail despatch an R1 and keep pace with a lunatic on a hayabusa, and all this with a touring tyre and half his wardrobe strapped to the tank!
    police got me on their laser gun the other day i think the guy must have telephoned ahead when i went past as as i rounded one corner there was a bloody roadblock of traffic cones and frantically waving police in the road i nearly didnt see them as i was tucked in behind the windshield. they pulled me over and told them i had been doing 150km/hr. i was delighted at this as i went past the gun doing over 280. the gun must have been a waterpistol as it obviusoly wasnt working proplerly, well i hope my speedo isnt that far off, anyway. they wanted a mere 200baht for doing nearly 3 times the speed limit.fantastic they also plyed me with coke, water and fresh stawberries, and gave me a dust mask to wear for the ride back. i told them that the bike will do 150km/hr in first gear as i left and they all gave me the thumbs up as i rode away.( pictures to follow!). i wonder what the english police would have done with me had i got caught doing 160mph. locked me up and threw away the key i reckon. i have heard that the pattaya police arent quite as friendly as the lamphun constabulary though...

    tom that takes months to learn how to put the pictures on, in my case anyway,!
    it was thanks to davefl and numerous other gt-riders that i finally managed my first "upload". basically you have to put them on a cd first. then from the cd onto a photo website like photobucket( thanks silverhawk), then from photobucket you can paste some number that will come with the picture onto the gt-rider site. sorry for the vague explanation as i still dont really know what im doing i have it all wriiten down for me and when that doesnt work i get the internet lads to do it for me!
    hope to see you in chiang mai soon better get that stupid restriction off the bike aswell you will definitely need that top-end for the lampang-chiang mai stretch!!
