    Anyone know anything about MSL Motorcycle Sport & Leisure magazine issue 574 & the "godfather of riding in the Golden Triangle"

    Need a copy of the magazine please, if anyone can get a copy in the UK.

    Here's the link. I don't see the article you are referencing though.

    https://classicissues.com/bidetail.asp?AutoNo=1002107&Submit2=Show+issue

    edit: Additionally I tried their rather clumsy search function. It didn't come with any match of what you asked for BUT searching the word Thailand showed that it is mentioned in issue 574 and it is available to order.

    Question: Is the esteemed Fearless Leader wanting a copy to bathe in pride or to check out who's infringed his copyright??? ;)

    Cheers,

    Pikey.

    Seems like DavidFL is not the only local personality making it into print at the moment.

    Take a look at Joe Sauerborn (Joe's Bike Team) here: http://www.kawasaki.com/Content/pdfs/ro ... 2_2008.pdf

    Article written (and kindly provided to me) by the infamous Dr G and the "Cult Bike" features too!

    Cheers,

    Pikey.

    Hmmm, is the title Godfather all that desireable? Underworld leader of crime organizations whose characteristics include attempting to manipulate people for their own benefit.

    I think not.

    David has a pdf scanned copy.

    Tho the omerta of the GT Riders prevents me from commenting on it publicly...
    Pikey are you trying to start a family feud between the two "Dons"?
    I don't think we have enough horses heads for a sustained campaign...

    Probably, but I'd like to see the article (it could be a piss take) & know who the author is, as I don't know anything about it.
    Still in Houei Xai crossing back into Thai tomorrow.

    Mate, you get a reference as a "useful" website and mention of MHS loop map...no real story.
