Mike, the most convincing argument for that sexy bike-bullet is that the sidecar is roofed in.
Meaning without an intercom I would not have been exposed to 5/ km complaints by Princess Sao about my driving in over 100.000 km.
For vulgar cash reasons I will have to continue to be sucker of punishment.
No, I have not done any rides lately, except to Chiang Khong to see David an May.
Reason is that I found my place. But I guess just crusing around Greater Chiang Mai to find THE place neede serval thousand km. Now I am very happy in my house at the Ping River in Mae Rim.
And I realized that I did too much riding, neglecting my battered body.
I am more often on my other 3 wheeler.

It is a wonderful recumbent trike with a 14 Rohloff gear box, most comfortable, the longest ride I did 6 years ago was Berlin, Germany - Ljubljana, Slovenia.
I get melancholic thinking about that.
But I must admit, nowadays my muscles are in poor shape and the farthest I have come is to the X-Centre
Sure it would cost less here . Have been thinking that there ought to be a market here too at a lesser price.This recumbent bicycle costs as much as some motorbikes.
270.000TBH + import duty the amount I have conveniently forgotten about.
Handicapped beggars can not be choosers.
I have yet to use my laptop while riding the bicycle=.
