Thai_1_on and Bangkok Butcher, Saam law (sarm lor?) racing? lol. Well, once upon a time...... :chat: All it takes is a little bribe for the saam law driver (40 baht, maybe?) and he might allow you to take over his carriage for the big race. Have your buddies do the same and, "THEY'RE OFF !!" May the...

White Plains (45) and Morristown (80) ? Two thriving metropolises, for sure. lol. Never been there but kinda surprised to see Manila=143 from what I've read and heard about it. Thought Anchorage, Alaska would be ranked near the top, also. Yeah, Gary, I also wondered where Udon Thani would rank if th...

Sounds like it will take the old hometown at least a month to recover from the last forum meeting, alright. Wonder who won the saam law race? My money was on Paul's bike.

Not only autographs but some of the old timers in here would probably be chasing you all over town with saamlaaws, canes and wheelchairs, Admin. :wink: We probably could control ourselves if you decide to colorize it, however. polehawk P.S.

My sincere condolences, also, to those affected by these cowardly acts and hope the cowards are swiftly brought to justice by the British authorities. There can never be justification for randomly killing of innocent people. My thoughts are with the British friends on this forum today.
