    The Snail & The Ambassador could not resist discussing the merits of a certain torque wrench

    The Ambassador got excited here & suddenly found himself a few thou out of pocket. (Perhaps it was the thought of Captn Slash's F650 that did it?)

    Captain Slash. This is the Phantom 200cc "Flame Edition" But this Particular Model was Called the America or California or some Such thing. Had Flat Bars (The Only Bars that should ever be Fitted to any Cruiser) Small Screen and the Number Plate was mounted on the Left Side. Quite Tasteful.

    Thanks for all the pix. Very instructive in terms of the Thai market, and very enjoyable for someone who is thousands of klicks away in the throes of winter. Warms the heart, it does, and reminds me why I'm headed your way in mid-May. You never know where inspiration may come from.
    :wink:

    PS $29,000 for BMW 1200GS!?!?!?!? List price here in Canada is $16,750.

    Dave, have you any idea if the sachs x-road 250 will be available in Thailand or will it just be the 125cc version..? :!: I have heared that they (Sachs) will be sold through a few JRD dealerships in Thailand soon.

    Hi David,

    Thanks for this excellent report on Thai Bike Market and show, I think it 's now more than time to lobby a bit for an opening of Thai Driving laws for us.

    Don't you have an idea on it, I am allways frustrated not to be able to use highways or other ways only reserved for cars, riding a true bike ?

    > Someones gotta do it so it might as well be you an the be silver'd one.
    My heart has to go out to the loverly on the "Suzi stand", must have lost her pant leg in a Oriffic accident.

    So the question is what can take the place of the ( hushed tones) AT!!?

    Keep the dream alive for us all, see you soon Scott..Land of Oz.
    But it on the decline....................
