    This post to wish Jack (Chat Chai // Jaques Guichard) all the best with the recovery of his crash in Laos!
    A legend in his 70's riding all the trails in Thailand (is it 20 years now?), now on his AX-1 with a hart of which the doctor said was not suitable for driving, but tell that to a die hard!
    I'm sure you will going to get through this, and hope to see you again at Nan Guest House !!!

    All the best, Tom & Ratha

    Lung Jack has finally checked in..

    287563=14936-LungGuichard1.

    287563=14937-LungGuichard2.

    Get well soon Lung. There are lots of people on GTR thinking about you.

    If I'm right is that you, badly injured laying in the tray of the pickup with the bike?

    A bit more in from the amazing man himself
    287570=14943-LungGuichard3.

    287570=14944-LungGuichard4.

    That's one hell of a tough 70 year old rider!

    All you guys riding out there in the wilds of Laos, please take note & care.
    Getting medical help & evacuation in Laos is not quite 5-star.

    Hello everybody,
    I was not aware that Tom from Nan guest house had put a thread on GTR.
    I phoned him from my hospital bed in BKK where I'd been flewn awaiting my transfer back to france for surgery.
    I cancelled the reservation I had made previously for a couple of nights at Nan gh,back from Laos to show my unfortunate
    riding mate the Doi Phuka loop before going back to CNX.
    I'm now back home,recovering slowly on my crutches and will celebrate my 74th birthday awaiting to ride again my old 500CB around here before going back to Luang Phrabang next fall to ride the 250 AX back to LOS.
    Cheers everybody,
    Lung.

    Thanks everyone for your concern and wishes.

    I'm just back from seeing the surgeon.Everything is fine,but the full recovery will take time.

    Thanks David for offering an asphalt(lol)escort from LPQ to HOE.

    Think I'll be back in Nov. See you then.

    Cheers, Lung.
