I am very sad to have to report that Khun Tan, the Chairman of Khon Kaen Rider Committee and a substantial Khon Kaen business man, was killed yesterday on his FJR motorcycle whilst on a trip to Loei. He leaves a young family and many other close relatives and I wish to convey the heartfelt condolences and sympathy of the GT rider community to all close to him. I have no details to report, so please do not ask. He becomes another sad statistic of this dangerous holiday time on Thai roads. Let us pray and take care as we can to avoid any further painful losses.
