Dear Friends, I below attach a translation of a Thai message sent out to all Khon Kaen riders. Chris joined us many times and we greatly enjoyed his company and contribution to our rides, especially because he just did not allow the pain and health difficulties he had long term from preventing him practising his hobby. We have arranged a ride from Khon Kaen as below leaving from the Yamaha Square shop. Its on the same road as the big school Khon Kaen Wittayalay, Thanon Na Muang. A few hundred metres past the school on the LHS heading out of town. Opposite corner and opposite side of road, 2 other large motorcycle shops. We would like to contribute to wat and the school in the village as well as the family of Chris, so the programme below has been arranged. Please feel free to join and invite anyone else who knew Chris or wishes to join. Please consider this also an invitation to Eagle riders, who Chris new well.
