    Are you over 50? You know, that is one of the requirements. [B)]

    Yeah you're not wrong there Wimpy: " Are you over 50? You know, that is one of the requirements."
    The AT Club is an elite club reserved for the guys with experience, who know how to ride long hours & distances, year after year.
    The Africa Twin always comes through as one of the most reliable economical bikes to ride for the "wise old farts league", men who know how to ride & play, year after year - not just a flash in the pan wonder boys for few months!
    With luck you'll be applying to join in a few more years.....
    And, from my experience the AT always brings in the girls. Its a big impressive looking horn machine, that the gals love to sit & ride one, as they get to sit up & ride so high!
    Youth is a wonderful thing, but we all know the story about the old bull & the young bull....

    BTW - when are we going to go for a ride?
    I'll be doing the MHS loop later this week - leave Tues or Wed - now that my crashing young brother has gone.....

    Being over 50 is correct, because then you can afford to buy the 2 Africa Twins that you will need - since one will be in the repair shop getting something fixed.

    Flying Bikes 110st Phnom Penh had one for sale 3 weeks ago. I also know a guy in PP that has one that he wants to get rid of (he bought it off flying bikes earlier this year and hardly uses it. Both will have legal plates and rego cards, costis around $4,500.

    cheers,

    Sorry to hear about your misadventure on R1243. It has been like that for a while too unfortunately. It would be good if you could make a small trip report on it (& the other roads you guys did) so that we all know about the good & the bad. A couple of GT riders did 1243 earlier this year (after Phi Ta Khon in Dan Sai), but did not see fit to make a report on it sad to say.
