alright i will stand by my first statement " a first a thai with a bit of respect for the property of others" and emphasise my in laws gave me that opinion However i don,t see it as Thai bashing in fact its a statement that would apply anywhere Hire cars are a prime example in general people do not respect the property of others i have lost enough gear on loan to people to know that to be true and my statement was in fact a compliment on the couple your getting over sensitive Bill :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

You are probably right geordie.

Guess living here for 11/12 year, visiting for about the same length of time has given me a slightly different take on it.

Not saying there has been no equipment lost or damaged as this has happened.

The thing I wouldn't do is leave my shiny vehicles, equipment or tools with any of my in-laws here or in Canada. Especially ones that have proven they can't be trusted. :roll:

Yes probably just getting sensitive in my old age.

I did it. Around the block with Song running alongside me. I rode a bicycle for years, I rode a motorbike in 1995, but somehow this all felt quite unnatural. I wasn't ready for the low centre of gravity and the fact that my feet couldn't do anything. Accelerating was almost easy, but remembering to brake was more difficult. After 5 minutes I congratulated myself on learning another skill and decided to continue using my 6-cylinder, air-conditioned, 4-wheeled Audi.
