    This has to be a joke, right?
    A motorcycle sandel? Get real....
    How about a motorcycle hat? Wait, they already have them here in Thailand. Think they are called an INDEX....
    Must have been designed by a "BIKER"
    I have never seen or heard of a dumber idea, but good luck.

    Just had an email for my Tupperware sponsor, they want me to promote their new helmet... Anyone interested?
    Comes in blue and pink, and when your not riding with it it will keep your somtam fresh for days.

    Looks like HIKO can stop importing his riding clogs from Sweden, finally a suitable substitute.

    Think about the positives:-

    Good ventilation promoting healthy feet in a tropical climate
    Save on socks
    Cheaper than boots
    Dry out quick after river crossings
    Light weight
    No need to polish
    Easy to clean

    Must another hundred positives......................!

    Shi'ite,

    Lots of guys in Pattaya use those. :lol:
    Better worn with RollerBlade knee pads and if you are using the matching Kevlar muscle shirt 8) it is advised to use the rollerblade elbow pads. :oops:

    It is not necessary to wear the special Bata shoes on chicken chasers as all modern ones have a rotary change so you never have to hook your foot under. If you can afford the Kevlar shorts you are probably riding a new automatic Honda Click. :lol:

    All last week I stopped at every BATA store I saw and have yet to come across them. Are they an old model? Wanted them check them out.

    I'll keep them next to my Chea Pet and the machine that scrambles egg while still inside the shell.
